Maharishi Mahesh Yogi dies

This is a music video of the song Sexy Sadie:

This song was written about the Maharishi and contains footage from the Beatles trip to India in 1968.

From Dutch NOS TV:

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the leader of the Transcendental Meditation movement, has died. He was 91 years old. …

He became well known in the 1960s and 70s, also because of interest in him by the Beatles, who visited him in 1968.

The Beatles, after this visit, wrote the mocking song Sexy Sadie about the Maharishi:

Sexy Sadie what have you done
You made a fool of everyone
