Robes of Silk, Feet of Clay
Robes of Silk, Feet of Clay - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
This new book is the true story of a love affair with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Indian Guru followed by the Beatles, Donovan, Mike Love, Mia Farrow, Deepak Chopra, David Lynch, as well as 6 million other meditators around the world.
Maharishi was very successful in spreading his technique of Transcendental Meditation. But rumours that he was not the celibate monk he claimed to be have been circulating for decades.
In this book Judith Bourque describes the love affair she experienced with Maharishi when she went to India as a young woman to become a teacher of Transcendental Meditation. After following him around the world for an intense period of two years she then discovered that he was also intimate with other young women. Frightened and disillusioned, she left the TM movement. She also shares the methods and means of her healing journey back to forgiveness and gratitude..
Robes of Silk Feet of Clay includes over 70 color photographs (most of which have never been published before) as well as Maharishi's handwritten letters, handwritten notes about his mantras, and a witness testimonial written by one of the ex "Skin Boys".
"One night Maharishi came to me in a dream...what he seemed to be asking for took me by surprise. When I finally understood his message, I realised it was time to write this book."
