THE NETHERLANDS (AP) -- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, guru to the Beatles and founder of the Transcendental Meditation movement has died at his home in the Netherlands.
The word comes from a TM spokesman, who says the Maharishi died peacefully of what appeared to be "natural causes, his age." He was believed to be 91.
His version of a Hindu mind control practice was once dismissed as hippie mysticism, but it has gradually gained medical respectability since.
