“Yoga means ‘unity’—it means living unified wholeness in the field of diversity,” Maharishi said. “My advice is to continue practicing Yoga on the physical level—but also to start and continue to practice Yoga on all other levels—mental, intellectual, and on the level of self-referral, transcendental consciousness. On all levels, Yoga will help you to progress in every way, in every field of life.”
