Maharishi Mahesh Yogi cremated in India

The body of recently deceased Maharishi (great sage) Mahesh Yogi was cremated on a traditional pyre in the holy Indian city of Allahabad on Monday. The guru was the founder of the Transcendental Meditation (“TM”) movement and a well-known popularizer of yoga and meditation techniques in the Western world.

Thousands of followers accompanied the body of their guru from his ashram to the burning site. In attendance was filmmaker David Lynch (a longtime TM practitioner and advocate) and one-time Presidential candidate John Hagelin of Maharishi’s Natural Law Party.
