Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the guru that taught the Beatles transcendental meditation, is building an International Peace Palace on two islands near the
small town of Canso, Nova Scotia. The Maharishi and his followers will be practicing yogic flying to promote world peace. Yogic flying is accomplished
by hopping while sitting cross-legged.
They bought the islands near the town of Canso last year for about $350,000 and plan a $1.2-million development that includes a peace tower,
conference centre and school.
The group considers the area, just south of the island of Cape Breton, the most easterly point on mainland North America - and the first place on the
continent to see the sun rise.

Spiritual guru to build meditation palaces off N.S. for global
The Maharishi expects an immediate impact on world peace. I feel safer already!
