“Barbara Briggs’ book is an excellent and compact source for this supreme practical Vedic wisdom as presented by Maharishi – the “Genius of Consciousness”. It is faithful to Maharishi’s exposition, being replete with well-chosen quotes from Maharishi’s works. Sources are given. It makes what used to be a highly specialized field of knowledge easily accessible to today’s reader, wherever they are starting from, and points the way to how one can achieve the timeless goal of full personal development and a comprehensive understanding of oneself and of life.” Charles Cunningham, BSC (hons.)

“I found this a brilliant reference book for Maharishi’s Vedic Science. Here is a map of the territory of higher consciousness, it’s development through all the seven states of consciousness to unity and the fundamental principles that underpin each one. With copious referenced quotes of Maharishi, the book does not seek to re-interpret the path but simply highlight the landmarks that Maharishi brought back to light for all future generations to find their way.”
