Thathuvagnani Vethathiri Maharishi was born in the year 1911 in a weaver’s family
of Guduvancheri, a small village near Chennai. From his childhood his inquiring
mind searched for the answers to the following question: “Who is God?” “What is
life?” “Why does poverty exist in the World?” He grew into a self educated man and
a profound thinker. Through sustained research in the philosophies of Tamil Siddha
saints, such as Thirumoolar, Thiruvalluvar, Thayumanavar and Ramalingar, and meditation
on self, he formulated a complete science of living for the betterment of all men
and women. He came to the firm conviction that training of the mind, introspection
and reformation of the habits of life are necessary for achieving success, peace,
happiness and wisdom. Hence he systematized a science of living as follows.
Through his own realization of Truth, he synthesized and expounded the philosophies
of universal magnetism, bio magnetism, evolution of the universe, evolution of living
beings, Brahma Gnanam (God realization) and the Vethathiri Model of Universe (Cosmological
Theory). He lived and taught his philosophy for more than five decades in a simple,
rational language, so that it could be understood by the majority and ultimately,
through dedication of mind, anyone could experience the subjective phenomena of
Truth, life-force and mind. He founded The World Community Service Centre (WCSC)
in the year 1958 in Guduvancheri. He was invited to visit foreign countries on many
occasions and has taught extensively for more than 20 years in U.S.A., Malaysia,
Singapore, Mexico, Democratic Republic of Korea and Japan. He also spoke at the
United Nations organisation in the year 1974.
Even at the advanced age of 95 he was tirelessly working for the cause of world
peace through individual peace. More than one million people have learnt this Yoga
for Human Excellence. Maharishi attained Mahasamadhi at the age of 95, on 28th March,
2006 at Temple of Consciousness, Aliyar.
