Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Sunday 17 February 2008

The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, dubbed 'The Beatles' Guru', has just died aged 91. In the 1950s he embarked on a mission to bring Transcendental Meditation to the world. He developed a sprawling bureaucracy, and attempted to enter mainstream politics through the Natural Law Party but his focus on meditation turned this Eastern practice into a widespread suburban phenomenon.


Paul Mason

was born in 1952 and in the early 1970s visited the Indian ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi where he learned Transcendental Meditation. He has written a number of books including a biography of the Maharishi.
