Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the worldwide Transcendental Meditation Movement, died on Tuesday, February 5, 2008 in Holland. An entire week of multimedia and live tributes around the world including the internet, followed.
The subsequent cremation of his body took place in India at the famous confluence of three rivers where the Khumbamela (Festival of the Pot) is held every third year. His cremation was witnessed live and via the internet by hundreds of thousands of his grieving followers on Monday, February 11, 2008.
A spiritual transformation leader for many decades, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is best known as the person who introduced Transcendental Meditation to the world famous Beatles band back in the late 1960's.
That propelled his spiritual movement onto the world stage and Transcendental Meditation has grown from strength to strength under the spirtiual leadership of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from then.
During his spiritual service on Earth, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi spent his time developing the institutional structure of the expanding worldwide Transcendental Meditation movement. TM teachers from all over the world were trained in various locations then returned to their countries to teach national leaders and ordinary citizens how to reduce the effects of stress in their daily lives.
Transcendental meditation is the most researched form of meditation because Maharishi Mahesh Yogi believed that science would one day lead the way to massive breakthroughs in the transformation of consciousness on Earth. Important research exists that show the effects of Transcendental Meditation in many areas of collective life.
One such area involves how groups of Transcendental Meditators meditating over a period of time in crime-ridden cities worldwide consistently result in a noticeable and scientifically verifiable reduction in crime in those cities.
Education was another important area of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's thrust to create spiritual transformation worldwide. A worldwide structured plan on developing and training all aspects and gifts of every individual including the important dissolving of stress within the consciousness is the hallmark of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's work.
He taught that it is imperative to develop both the left and right brain functions in a rounded and balanced way to create world peace, enlightenment and heaven on Earth. Consciousness-based education is the hallmark of his educational vision and mission for the world.
'Knowledge is structured in consciousness’ is the motto of the Maharishi University of Management located in Fairfield, Iowa in the United States. This university, previously named the Maharishi International University or MIU, is spearheading the transformation of education around the world and leads the implementation of Maharishi's consciousness-based education.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi life is being honoured around the world for his lifelong dedication and commitment to the dissolving of stress within the individual, society and the entire world. He taught in his simple but powerful way that humanity's suffering was a result of individual and collective stresses building up within the consciousness of individuals worldwide.
He taught that as each person practices Transcendental Meditation for two twenty minute segments every day, individual stress would be reduced and this would have a cumulative, expanding effect on the reduction of stress within all societies around the world.
