Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who gained celebrity through his association with the Beatles in 1968, is reportedly dead. Yogi used Transcendental Meditation to reach new levels of spiritual awareness. Dr. Hook parodied the association in his song “Cover of the Rolling Stone” with the lyrics: “We’ve got a genuine Indian Guru, teachin’ us a better way”

Mahesh Yogi wrote a book which sold over a million copies entitled the “Science of Being and Art of Living” which was translated into 15 languages. Last week he stepped down as the leader of the Transcendental Movement which has 5 million followers worldwide. Maharaja Nader Raam was appointed the new global leader for the movement.

Yogi’s message could be summarized in this 1967 quote: “Being happy is of the utmost importance. Success in anything is through happiness. Under all circumstances be happy … Just think of any negativity that comes at you as a raindrop falling into the ocean of your bliss”

The scary thing about this story is now three out of five of the key players of this story are dead. Minus John Lennon and George Harrison, surviving Beatles are Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. The rest are across the Universe. Yes corny, but intended. Common mistypes for this story are: Ringo Star, Paul Mcartney, John Lenon, Beetles, Betles, Mahareeshi, mahareshe, mahareshi, jogi, transendental transandental. We’ll keep you informed of this and other entertaining news.
