Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the controversial Transcendental Meditation system, died yesterday at the age of 91.

Just a month ago, he decided to go into seclusion in order to study ancient spiritual texts that are the foundation of his system.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi started teaching meditation in 1955. Four years later he introduced his system in the USA for the first time.

He entered into worldwide public awareness when the Beatles came to be in his presence in his ashram in Rishikesh, India in 1968.
