In January, 1970, I traveled to India with many friends including Bill and Prudence to study the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) program with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and become a teacher of TM. We traveled to and lived in Rishikesh, and received Darshan from other great saints including Sri Tat Wale Baba and Sri Anandamoyi Ma.
These are my personal recollections and photographs. There was a trip to Bangalore with Maharishi and then a further journey to Alleppey, Trivandrum, Quilon, Kanyakumari, Rameswaram, and Madurai with Brahmachari Sattyanand, Geoffrey Baker and Fred den Ouden – our traveling at Maharishi's request to accompany Sattyanand to visit the places Maharishi did when he first left Uttarkashi in the Himalayas. There are extensive color photos of the places and people, accompanied by our stories from that time.
