Talk:Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Astrologers (practitioners of Jyotish - Indian astrology) within the TM movement all use a horoscope for Maharishi with Makar Lagna (sidereal Capricorn ascendant). Srikrishna Gopinath Karve (also known as Yogi Karve), a psychic astrologer from Mumbai, met with Maharishi in Vlodrop Holland in the fall of 1998. Maharishi was so impressed with Yogi Karve that he bestowed upon him the title: Satpurush (pure person). Apart from their spiritual discussions Yogi Karve also gave Maharishi an astrological reading. Later when I asked Mr. Karve about Maharishi's birth-time he gave me 8:40am 12 January 1917 as his accurate birth data.
