Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is known around the globe for teaching the Transcendental Meditation programme, the most thoroughly researched and effective technique for self-development. Maharishi also restructured and restored the total knowledge of Veda and Vedic Literature and gifted highly effective and practical programmes of the Vedic tradition of India, in their purity and totality, so that everyone everywhere could enjoy the full potential of life—life in peace, affluence and perfect health.

For his contributions to this profound body of knowledge (in more than 20 books and 20,000 hours of videotaped lectures), Maharishi is widely recognized as the world’s foremost Vedic scholar and scientist of consciousness of the modern era.

It was due to Maharishi’s constant inspiration to researchers, and his clear predictions about measurable results, that research on his Transcendental Meditation technique first made meditation, and Transcendental Consciousness, scientific realities.

During the past 40 years, nearly 700 scientific studies conducted at 215 independent research institutions and universities in 35 countries have documented the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique for the mind, body and society.

After long centuries of confusion, Maharishi brought to light the Vedic truth that meditation is not based on effort and concentration, but rather takes place spontaneously and naturally once the mind is given the correct start. It is this transformation in understanding, embodied in his Transcendental Meditation technique, which has opened the benefits of meditation to people of all cultures and walks of life. For his ability to teach the transcending process, and make available the experience of the Unified Field of Natural Law (in Transcendental Consciousness) to people of all ages, religions, and walks of life, he is recognized worldwide as the most effective teacher of enlightenment in many generations.

For centuries into the past, only a few people were deemed worthy of meditation, and society as a whole was left to fend for itself, but Maharishi’s stated goals are to bring enlightenment to every individual on Earth, and to establish a state of permanent peace in the world.

Through his development of the advanced TM-Siddhi Programme and particularly the group practice of Yogic Flying, Maharishi gave the world a technology for creating a coherent, peaceful influence in the collective consciousness of any nation. When applied on a large scale, the group practice of Yogic Flying offers the first scientifically validated approach to creating world peace. In addition, Maharishi blessed the world with his Vedic Science and developed programmes that bring fulfillment to health care, education, defense, administration, architecture, agriculture and many other areas of modern life. To disseminate these programmes and to directly apply them for benefit of the world, Maharishi founded large number of organizations and institutions in 110 countries.
