The article features an interview in which a UCLA student reporter asks Maharishi Mahesh Yogi about the role of students in changing the world, how the Transcendental Meditation technique can improve effectiveness, and the best question of all—What is enlightenment?
Maharishi emphasized that enlightened people can restructure the world, because they have the full support of Natural Law for the fulfillment of desires and will find success everywhere.
Question: I have heard that you talked about enlightenment as being easy. I was wondering what exactly you mean by 'enlightenment'?
Maharishi: Enlightenment means lack of darkness, absence of darkness. And ''absence of darkness'' means no mistakes, no weakness, no shortcoming—success everywhere, fulfillment of desire everywhere. That is enlightenment. One is living in full accord with Natural Law. Spontaneously Nature is supporting us: then we are not in the dark about anything.
