Sir Paul McCartney has issued a statement following the death of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Holland this week.

In his statement, Sir Paul said, "I was asked for my thoughts on the passing yesterday of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and I can only say that whilst I am deeply saddened by his passing, my memories of him will only be joyful ones. He was a great man who worked tirelessly for the people of the world and the cause of unity. I will never forget the dedication that he wrote inside a book he once gave me, which read; 'radiate, bliss, consciousness' and that to me says it all. I will miss him but will always think of him with a smile."

The Beatles traveled to India in 1968 to mediate with The Mararishi. The Mararishi would later to be found to be sleeping with some of the women on the party, most notably Mia Farrow.

Disillusioned by the hypocritical actions of the holy man, John Lennon composed the song 'Sexy Sadie' about him. The lyrics were 'Sexy Sadie, what have you done, you made a fool of everyone'.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi died in the Netherlands. He was 91.

to be accurate, instead of saying Lennon was disillusioned "by the hypocritical actions of the holy man," you might say, disillusioned by 'what he perceived at the time" to be the hypocritical actions of the holy man, for all the Beatles, including John, later apologized for John's mistake, and the other Beatles refused to allow John to use Maharishi's name in the song Sexy Sadie because they knew the song was based on false gossip. This has all finally come out in the press, after all these years. Maharihsi was the real deal, and he was no hypocrite. He did more to make the benefits of meditation available to the world than anyone in history.
