About : 

  • AYUSH systems of healthcare form the foundation of India’s Medical Heritage. These systems are not merely sciences of disease and drug, but have their conceptual spheres touching every aspect of life. Path-finding visionaries have appeared in each of the different streams of AYUSH systems at different times in history and made valuable contributions to the growth and development of respective practices.
  • Department of Posts is bringing out Commemorative Postage Stamps on 12 such Master Healers from different streams of AYUSH systems.
    • Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: Known for original contributions to Yoga and Meditation, he is remembered most for developing the Transcendental Meditation technique. The Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, was his guru. From 1955 he travelled around India and the world to spread his message of peace and spirituality and inspired thousands of followers. Maharishi’s legacy lives on through the numerous books that he authored and the many institutions that he set up, including the Maharishi International University (later renamed Maharishi University of Management).
  • Text : Based on information received from the proponent.
