The Fool On The Hill

The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, once a spiritual advisor to the Beatles, died Tuesday in his Dutch home, a spokesman for the Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation movement told the ANP news agency here early Wednesday.

The Maharishi was thought to have been 91 years old. He had been living in the tiny village of Vlodrop in the Netherlands since 1990. The worldwide headquarters of his Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement was also in Vlodrop.

Originally from India the Maharishi started his worldwide movement in 1958. In the 1960s he attracted many followers including the Beatles who went to meditate with him in India in 1968.
