Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
The knowledge of Transcendental Meditation has been made widely available in the world today by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharishi received the technique from his teacher with whom he studied for many years, before inaugurating an international movement to spread the knowledge of Transcendental Meditation globally in 1957. Maharishi first came to the UK in 1959.
Bringing benefits to all areas of life
Maharishi's achievements are far-reaching both in the field of knowledge and in action. During the past 50 years, more than five million people have learned Transcendental Meditation, and over 40,000 teachers of Transcendental Meditation have been trained, opening thousands of teaching centres throughout the world. Hundreds of Maharishi schools, colleges and universities have been founded, and Transcendental Meditation programmes have been introduced in private businesses, universities, prisons, the military, and other public institutions.
The true significance
Maharishi also completely restored the thousands-of-years-old scattered Vedic literature restoring the true significance of its theory and practice, and organised it in the form of a complete and systematic science of consciousness. Maharishi's practical programmes quietly establish life according to Natural Law without requiring change in any area of endeavour, to irrevocably change the course of time in favour of peace and happiness for all mankind.
