His devotees referred to him as his ‘Holiness’. In the late 1960’s and 1970’s Maharishi achieved fame as the Guru to the Beatles. Beatles was a English Band established in Liverpool.
It was really a good time for Indians that being a Indian a person is representing and ruling a English Band.
The Maharishi’s natural Law party was founded in 1992 where dozens of countries took part in.He moved to Meru Holland in the same year.
In 2000 he created the Global Country of world peace (A country without Borders). He wanted each and every person to get involved in his campaign because his thinking was like there should be no boundaries in between the countries he considered the world as a whole.

In present time we can easily see few Institutions which have opted Maharishi’s name .One of the best example is the Maharishi Yogi Vedic University Bhopal .Which still symbolizes the power of the Superior Meditator Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
