"Maharishi brought Yoga out of the world of mysticism and speculative philosophy, and created a scientifically verified program for unfolding the total potential of human life, life in enlightenment. Maharishi’s brilliant insights make Dr. Sands’ book a must-read for anyone interested in Yoga.”—Robert Keith Wallace, Ph.D



New book on Maharishi's Yoga

October 2013

Maharishi's Yoga: The Royal Path to Enlightenment is an easy-to-read and far-reaching book that explores Maharishi's teaching on Yoga philosophy from several perspectives, including its profound practical benefits for individuals and societies.

The book, authored by William Sands, dean of the College of Maharishi Vedic Science at Maharishi University of Management (MUM), also considers traditional areas of Yoga philosophy, such as siddhi performance, Karma Yoga, Gyan Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, and the fulfillment of the four traditional goals of human life: dharma, artha, kama, and moksha.

To many, Yoga is an ancient form of exercise, practiced for its health benefits. But the book explains that Yoga extends far beyond the exercise studio, and its benefits go far beyond health.

Dr. Sands explains that Maharishi has provided a unique and fresh understanding of the ancient science of Yoga, restoring its deepest significance. His approach is rich in both theory and practice. It provides the key to inner peace, stress and anxiety relief, happiness, wellness, success, and the realization of the true purpose of Yoga—to elevate life to its highest potential—enlightenment.

The book concludes that the goals of Yoga—from inner peace to full enlightenment—can be effortlessly achieved.
