And the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has died at the age of 91. He became famous in the 1960s after the Beatles traveled to his ashram in India to study transcendental meditation techniques.
John Hagelin, of the Maharishi University of Management: “Maharishi was extremely special in this world. He has left a huge legacy. He’s the one who brought meditation to the world. He is the one who encouraged scientific research on the effects of meditation fifty years ago which brought meditation out of the realm of mysticism and into the light of mainstream science, mainstream society.”
