History: Born in 1918, he spent his years in the Himalaya’s studying under Guru Dev, the founder of Transcendental Meditation.
When Guru Dev died in 1952, the Maharishi organized a movement to spread the teachings of TM throughout the world; his first world tour took place in 1959 and brought him to the United States.
The Maharishi is reported to have trained more than 40,000 TM teachers, taught the Transcendental Meditation technique to “more than five million people and of course became famous when The Beatles and other celebrities connected with him and his training.
In 2000, he created the Global Country of World Peace, a non-profit organization, and appointed its leaders. In 2008, aged 90, the Maharishi announced his retirement from all administrative activities and went into silence until his death three weeks later.
Spirituality: Master Maharishi came to teach with the intention to change the course of human history. He had three main aims: to revive the spiritual tradition in India, to show that meditation was for everyone and to show that Vedanta is compatible with science.
He also taught that practicing Transcendental Meditation twice a day would create inner peace and that “mass meditation sessions” could create outer peace by reducing violence and war.
