During the last century seekers in the West turned to the East in a search for hidden truth and esoteric knowledge. They sought a deeper understanding of the aim and purpose of a human life, the essential nature of men and women, and the laws that govern our lives. In the aftermath of World War II, master teachers in India resolved to introduce Eastern philosophy and meditation to the West. Among these Eastern teachers were Shantananda Saraswati, who was the Shankcharya of the North, the Maharishi, who taught Transcendental Meditation, and Swami Muktananda. Among the Western seekers and teachers were G.I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky, Willem Nyland, Dr. Francis Roles and Leon MacLaren.
