Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, spiritual leader launched into the spotlight by the famous visit from The Beatles in 1968, left his earthly body, February 5, 2008. Known for his Transcendental Meditation Movement, Mahareshi announced his retirement on January 11, 2008 stating, “Invincibility is irreversibly established in the world. My work is done. My designated duty to Guru Dev is fulfilled.” He died just a month later.
In a interesting coincidence, on the day of his death NASA beamed The Beatles’ Across the Universe into space celebrating the 40th anniversary of the song, the 45th anniversary of the Deep Space Network (DSN), and the 50th anniversary of NASA. It was the first time they’d ever beamed a song into space.
In an even startling coincidence the Universe answered back with a resounding “OOOOmmm…La-Di Om-La-Da life goes oonnn…” oh!
