Conversations with Charlie Lutes - Stepping onto the Path of Enlightenment - 25min 57sec - 38.1Mb - WMV file - 22 June 2014 - video

Back in the mid to late '70s, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had the good fortune to start a TV station in Los Angeles, KSCI, which broadcast topics of interest to people who practiced Transcendental Meditation. Now, of course, the station has since been sold and replaced by the internet...

A quick overview of the early years of the Transcendental Meditation Movement - SRM, Spiritual Regeneration Movement Foundation - begun by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the late 1950s. This is a rare audio recording of Charlie Lutes being interviewed on KSCI, the Los Angeles television channel 18, sometime during the mid to late 1970s.

PREFACE - opening paragraph of preface to Maharishi's "Science of Being and Art of Living" read to Charlie during this interview beginning at 16 minutes, 10 seconds into this video...

"This is a book of revival for the age. If the golden era is ever to dawn on human society, if peace and harmony are to reign on earth, The Science of Being and Art of Living will provide a free way for it to come. A new humanity will be born, fuller in conception and richer in experience and accomplishments in all fields. Joy of life will belong to every man, love will dominate human society, truth and virtue will reign in the world, peace on earth will be permanent and all will live in fulfillment, in fullness of life in God-consciousness." and continuing...

Conversations with Charlie Lutes - Revivals - 25min 59sec - 33.3Mb - WMV file - 6 July 2014 - video

How is it that time seems to repeat themes over and over? Does anything get any better, or does everything stay the same? Revival as it relates to repetitious cycles plus evolution has a hand in each revival as well: pushing each revival forward so that each repetition is not entirely the same as the last.
Ten Thousand Pundits - 18min 32sec - 17.2Mb - WMV file - 6 July 2014 - video

What will it take to purify the atmosphere to prevent wars, calamities, suffering, unrest, etc. plus establish this reality as a social standard for many, many centuries to come? Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has the vision, do we share it?

It will take the square root of one percent of all of the 10 billion souls who live in and around the Earth on all its planes of development, both the Heavenly planes and the Earthly planes, namely: 10,000 Vedic Pundits performing Vedic Yagyas as their vocation and practicing Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi Program twice daily. And not just one set of 10,000 pundits, but two more sets as a safety backup. A kind of obligatory service not unlike the obligatory service in the military in Israel among the young people of that country. But in this case, this is not to fight any battle, but to prevent the need to fight with anyone or allow natural or manmade disasters from ever having any foundation upon which to arise in the first place.

The second part to Revivals, this episode deals more with the future: what can we expect to see? Charlie's thoughts on this question...
Conversations with Charlie Lutes - Modes of the Mind - 24min 59sec - 167 Mb - MP4 file - 17 Sept. 2014 - video

The nature of the individual mind is discussed. Also, Universal Mind. Knowledge vs Wisdom. Granted, you may have to watch this a few times to get the gist of what Charlie is saying since the second half of the audio skips a lot.
The Highest Teaching is Transcendental Meditation as taught by certified teachers. - 28min 41sec - 183 Mb - MP4 file - 21 Sept. 2014 - video

It's not enough to be given the highest teaching on Earth. What do we do with it? Persevere. Morning and Evening, twice a day devotion to our meditation as we've been instructed by teachers of Transcendental Meditation who have been certified by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his various organizations. But what does it take to persevere? Funny you should ask. Just ask Charlie what it was like. But was it worth it? You decide. Charlie says so, because we couldn't have asked for anything greater in life, but this: to outgrow life and exchange mortality for immortality while alive in this life - not sometime, hereafter.

Absolute versus relative truth.
The Mystery of Life, Charlie Lutes - 23min 8sec - 34.7 Mb - MP4 file - 4 July 2015 - video

The overall purpose of life is the mystery of life within which are various lesser purposes of life – some of which are unique to our self, such as: what is our distinct purpose in life? But generally, the overall purpose of life is to solve the mystery of life: Who are we? By going within, we gain awareness of our self which is the greatest mystery of all.
