ABC TV Show Compass with Geraldine Doogue asks Whatever Happened To… The Maharishi?

ABC TV Show Compass on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Transcendental Meditation in Australia

Maharishi arrives in Australia

“In the 1960’s Indian guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi introduced Transcendental Meditation to the world, spreading his meditation technique to Australia and setting up centres in Melbourne and Sydney.

Among his most famous followers were The Beatles, who went to India to see their spiritual guru.

In Australia, some practitioners of this ancient Indian meditation technique were there at the beginning and Compass explores what drew them to it, how their lives have changed and the legacy of this giggling guru.”
