In 1959 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi founded the Spiritual Regeneration Movement Foundation to enable everyone to experience God through the practice of Transcendental Meditation. Maharishi appointed Charles Lutes as president of this organization. Charlie was a man of God and he spoke about God. Charlie described Transcendental Meditation as the highest teaching because it is through the continued practice of this technique that one is able to infuse the Being (God) into ones mind and body and thereby become united with God. Charlie often stated that humans are spiritual beings with a spiritual destiny, and through his own spiritual development he illustrated the efficacy of the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique as a means to awaken to this destiny. Charlie was a living example about that which he spoke. Charlie was a spiritual Master in his own right. The 108 lectures in this book were gleaned from over one-thousand inspirational lectures which Charlie had delivered spanning over twenty years, from the 1970s to the 1990s. Although Charlie’s lectures were written for and delivered to an audience of practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation technique, the knowledge contained in these lectures are universal truths and contain universal appeal; therefore, they serve as an inspiration for all seekers of truth regardless of the spiritual path they may travel.

Lutes while giving lectures to a select group of advanced meditators at his private weekly meetings. Charlie never meant for his lectures to be published. However, after Charlie died, his friends wanted to preserve his lectures in book form as a memorial edition to be distributed for free for the Friends of Charlie’s private use. However, the demand for this book expanded quickly beyond Charlie’s immediate friends. Therefore, to meet this demand this book has been uploaded to the Community Library so that a broader audience may gain benefit, from the universal knowledge presented in Charlie’s lectures, for many generations to come.

From Lecture No. 18, The Battlefield within the Mind" The human mind is the battlefield where untutored impulsive and conscious forces are warring against altruistic forces. Sometimes good dominates and then vice versa. We go from good to bad and bad to good in a constant and unending struggle. We constantly move from one opposite to the other, from hate to love, from truth to untruth, and so forth. When the lower forces in the mind dominate, the higher or divine forces become subordinate to the lower forces. Nobody is totally good or totally bad. We are a composite of good and bad; some things good and some things not so good. As we strive to improve ourselves temptations are continually placed before us. Often we fail the tests and we create misery for ourselves, but slowly we learn as we go from test to test and lesson to lesson. Sometimes along the path of life we begin to realize that there must be some way to find true guidance and support in our long and weary battle for happiness and peace of mind. We realize that the flesh is weak and that by ourselves we are not strong enough to overcome. We seem to be constantly pulled down by irresistible forces arrayed against us. It is then that we ask for divine guidance, and if we are sincere it is given to us. We find that by going within ourselves through our meditation practice there is a well of inner strength we never dreamed we possessed. We begin to turn the tide of the battle and commence at long last to win the age old war that has raged within ourselves. Slowly the darkness of the mind starts to lift and we see the light of peace and happiness beginning to shine forth. The lower forces at this point realize they are faced with total defeat and they fight with renewed vigor to again gain supremacy of the mind and control of the individual. This is where we unveil our greatest weapon, faith; the white light of humanity.
