Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was responsible for bringing the form of meditation called transcendental meditation to the west.
Studies have shown that people who practice TM may benefit from a reduction of high blood pressure, decreased insomnia, reduction of high cholesterol, reduced illness and medical expenditures and decreased anxiety. These benefits do not relate purely to TM and may be achieved through any form of meditation. The Problem with TM though, is that they charge you a butt load of cash to learn the technique (2,500 bucks), while other techniques are far cheaper or free such as Vipassana meditation.
The Comedian Andy Kaufman was into TM big time and eventually became a teacher but was kicked out, probably because he started wrestling woman. David Lynch is also a practitioner of TM, and so is Clint Eastwood, but Jiro told me he beats his wife.
