Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the guru who introduced Transcendental Meditation to Amercia, is eyeing the San Francisco Bay Area as the site for clusters of Heaven on Earth homes.

Officials for the guru's Maharishi Heaven on Earth Development Corp. see the area as a serene site for a blissful series of Maharishi Cities of Immortals - up to 200 high-tech homes built of all-natural material."Cities are choked with pollution, crime, noise, gridlock and negativity," Curtis McDonald, vice president of Malibu-based corporation, said at a news conference Friday, explaining the need for the guru's proposed housing developments.

The heavenly cities will be open to everyone and not restricted to those who meditate. According to the plan, being presented at a series of 50 conferences across North America, the housing will be designed for five income levels.
