Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, TM Founder

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi,
Founder of the TM Program

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is the Founder of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program.

Maharishi brought the TM program from India to the West in 1959. Since then, more than 10 million people of all ages, cultures, and religions have learned the TM technique.

In 1963, Maharishi published his seminal book, Science of Being and Art of Living, which was translated into 15 languages. His second book, published in 1967, was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad-Gita: A New Translation and Commentary.

The simple, natural technique of Transcendental Meditation allows anyone to experience and utilize the source of infinite intelligence and creativity within—the field of pure consciousness. The knowledge of the Transcendental Meditation technique had been lost until, inspired by his own teacher, Maharishi revived this effortless and systematic practice.

During his life, Maharishi worked with scientists, educators, and exponents of Vedic wisdom to develop an integrated approach to knowledge, unifying diverse fields of study. He wrote many books and circled the world numerous times, speaking with world leaders and lecturing widely.

Through the second half of the 20th century, Maharishi inspired a scientific quest for enlightenment. Over 700 published studies on the TM technique have demonstrated its far-reaching benefits—better health and longer life, greater intelligence and creativity, more fulfilling relationships and work success, reduced societal stress, and effortless creation of peace.

In addition, many of these studies reveal the neurophysiological correlates of a fourth major state of consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness, and point to the existence of a fifth state of consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, in which pure awareness becomes a permanent feature of daily life.
