Thom KnolesMaharishi of Vedic Meditation
Thom Knoles is a maharishi (or pre-eminent master-teacher) of Vedic Meditation. Thom is a thought-leader and celebrated speaker on the cognitive sciences, on the potential of the brain and health of the body, on the relationship between quantum physics and human consciousness, and on the 5,000 year-old body of wisdom known as the Veda (knowledge governing the unity of the laws of nature and human consciousness from which yoga, meditation, and Ayur Veda are derived).
In India, he is called “Maharishi Vyasananda.” It means “the great seer who sequentially elaborates knowledge blissfully.”
In the ’60s, Thom discovered yoga and his life was changed. He learned Vedic Meditation from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who became Thom’s personal mentor and his predominant spiritual and educational influence over the next two decades.
