I've been involved with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and practicing and teaching his programs since 1971. Have been involved in business, mostly sales and marketing, in the fine gem, fine gift, and fine incense industries, as well as in natural health and natural health care equipment. Have been very involved also in poetry, Indian life and studies, Gandharva Veda music (north Indian classical music), Vedic Astrology (Jyotish), and Vastu Vidya (Vastu housing design) as well as sustainable living and housing projects. On more fundamental level, I am who I am, I am consciousness itself, pure awareness. My life is directed toward spiritual enlightenment and perfection, and the creation and maintenance of Heaven on Earth, a life free from suffering and established in coherence, progress, prosperity and happiness for everyone on earth.
Personal experience and intellectual understanding of the Vedic Tradition, especially as it is represented by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his Teacher, supported by the findings of modern Unified Field theory and the 700 published papers on the benefits of Maharishi's programs.
