Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
FameRank: 6

"Maharishi Mahesh Yogi" was born "Mahesh Prasad Varma" and obtained the honorific Maharishi (meaning "Great Seer") and Yogi as an adult. He developed the Transcendental Meditation technique and was the leader and guru of a Transcendental Meditation movement/worldwide organization that has been characterized in multiple ways including as a new religious movement and as non-religious.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi became a disciple and assistant of Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, the Shankaracharya (spiritual leader) of Jyotirmath in the Indian Himalayas. The Maharishi credits Brahmananda Saraswati with inspiring his teachings. In 1955, the Maharishi began to introduce his Transcendental Deep Meditation (later renamed Transcendental Meditation) to India and the world. His first global tour began in 1958. His devotees referred to him as His Holiness, and because he often laughed in TV interviews he was sometimes referred to as the "giggling guru".

I let people make remarks about me, but it doesn't touch me, all those remarks.

Seem to be done honorably.

When we think of failure; Failure will be ours. If we remain undecided; Nothing will ever change. All we need to do is want to achieve something great and then simply to do it. Never think of failure For what we think, will come about.

Where is the money going to come from?From wherever it is at the moment.

Whatever we put our attention on will grow stronger in our life.
