Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Since ancient times, the Vedic Pandits of India have been trained in the vast scope of knowledge found in the Vedas and Vedic literature.  At the core of this knowledge are methodologies that allow individuals and society to advance towards greater happiness and enlightenment.

In recent centuries, the effectiveness of Vedic practices diminished due to a loss in the correct understanding of their use.  Restoring their purity and effectiveness in our modern era was the life work of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Maharishi is best known around the world for introducing Transcendental Meditation (TM), the most thoroughly researched and effective technique for self-development. In his 50 years of teaching, he also restored from the Vedic tradition the practical approach to reduce violence and promote peaceful trends in society—the approach that forms the basis of the Global Peace Initiative.
