The Indian guru who brought transcendental meditation to the west, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, has died at his home in the southern Dutch village of Vlodorp just days after announcing his retirement.
The Maharishi, who was around 90, is believed to have died from natural causes. His devotees included the Beatles and film director David Lynch.
The body of the Maharishi is expected to be flown back to India in the next few days.
