George Lucas, Star Wars, and Transcendental Meditation

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as the model for Yoda
and influences of the Science of Creative Intelligence
and the TM technique upon the Star Wars literature

George Lucas has taken the instruction in Transcendental Meditation in the 1970's as a student at the University of Southern California, and is reportedly still a daily meditator.  He is familiar with the principles Science of Creative Intelligence that describe the practice, and help to understand the experience during meditation. 

This web page lists the similarities that can be found in his science fiction writings and cinematic work, especially the Star Wars literature.  Many non-meditators may miss the significance of many of the quotes and ideas, without the experience to connect them to. 

Regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhis Program helps to understand the message that George Lucas is trying to convey.  Those who are "in the know" can appreciate more of the deep message contained in his films.

Yoda D'KanaGeorge Lucas has known of Sidha Master Yogi - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from the time he learned to meditate.  Maharishi means "great teacher" in the tradition of Vedic Masters. It is widely believed that Maharishi has served as the model for Jedi Master Yoda who trained Obi-Wan Kenobe, Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader), and Luke Skywalker. 

Whether George Lucas sought to convey these deep principles of Vedic Science consciously or unconsciously, the Star Wars literature and movies have had tremendous Support of Nature (with "The Force").  The theme of "mind being more powerful than matter" are in tune with fundamental truths of the universe, the latest thinking in Physics - and Vedic Science.

George Lucas taps in to a fundamental desire we all have, to become more in tune with, and master our environment.  He provides the examples of Anakin and Luke Skywalker studying, training, and growing up to become Jedi Masters.  This can explain why George Lucas as become a multi-billionaire through his work, and why the Star Wars movies were one of the highest grossing films of all time.
