“Errr….John, didn’t you say Maharishi had been born again?”
“Ringo, don’t ask me such daft questions…I am dead don’t you know!”
“But John, death is not real…. Maharishi said so!!!…”

The title “One More Step To Rishikesh” is a personal one for me; I am using the place name “Rishikesh” to represent complete Enlightenment…. What a goal!!! Enlightenment is correctly defined as meaning "posessing a nervous system that is so completely cultured to perfection that NO SADNESS, NO GRIEF, NO SUFFERING, NO ANGER and nothing negative can occur within or affect the mind….. it is COMPLETE HAPPINESS with no possibility of anything less…….
Today, right now, I wish that for you, and for me…always. Once gained the state of complete enlightenment is irreversable eternally….
The path to it is “practice”…. well…. it is a practice if we wish to go the accelerated way…
We are all here to get to enlightenment…. and enlightenment and the finding of it…the “getting there one way or another”, being the core meaning of life…well…..the Rishis and Seers and sages ALL say that ALL OF US are headed that way and will make it to that beautiful, beautiful, state of perpetual bliss…..
As Maharishi Mahesh Yogi said once, this is not some romantic talk…“this is no joke!” …isn’t that of some reassurance?
