"In 1959, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi embarked on a global quest to revive the practice of a simple meditation technique known as Transcendental Meditation®, with the goal of helping people achieve lives free of stress and infused with inner peace. Since then, millions of people, in over 50 countries, have learned Transcendental Meditation. The importance of turning inward and relieving stress is now widely accepted around the world due to Maharishi's efforts. As part of his revival of this ancient wisdom, Maharishi introduced Ayurveda to the western world. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda literally translated means ""the science of life."" In honor of him, our company is named Maharishi Ayurveda. Maharishi means ""great seer"" in Sanskrit, and it is appropriate that the revival of this ancient knowledge is prefaced this way."
