Maharishi was the most extraordinary, inspiring person I ever met.
Maharishi was the happiest person I ever encountered. He fully embodied his favorite slogan, “Life is not a struggle; life is bliss.” He frequently cracked jokes and laughed at himself. His joy was contagious. Much of the time, those in near vicinity were in stitches. He was bliss in the flesh. The press dubbed him “the giggling guru.” His robust laugh was described by reporters as “an irresistible invitation to join him in a huge joke—even if one was not at all sure what the joke was, whether it springs from his understanding of some sublime, specific truths or from his recognition of the idiocy of mankind in general.”
