1. Wow, thanks for sharing that.
We must all become our own authority, with our own intuition and inner voice. We're all waiting for someone to change the world for the better. When we do that, the bad guys take everything.

2. Thank you so much for sharing this, Rose.
What a life you've lived! It's wonderful that you're able to take focus on what you got from the experience rather than what you didn't get that you expected.

:)

3. Rose, I don't know what 'Lifers' you refer to,
but my brother certainly is one, he and his family live in Fairfield, and their broad group of friends are a continuing and large part of the group.

Formerly Parsons college, its now Maharishi University of Management, and NYT did a pretty informative piece. For those interested, there will be a funeral in Delhi in the not distant future, I think.

4. You knew Peter McWilliams?
Edited on Fri Feb-08-08 11:25 PM by Love Bug
I'm a great admirer of his and own all of his books and the audio version of Love 101. I exchanged a couple of emails with him years ago, which was a thrill for me. I can't belive the terrible way he was persecuted before he died, and I'm sure that contributed greatly to his death. What a loss that was.

6. This is one of the reasons I don't practice religion or join one.
Although I read widely from all religions and spiritual movements even many of the more out there ones, no one individual or group can really give you spiritual enlightment. It has to come from you and the individual path you take to acheive one with the Divine. Everything offered are just ingredients in the final recipe that you will mix for your own personal spiritual journey.

It looks like the Maharishi did you no harm and that he actually guided you on the path you would eventually take on your own.

7. Great post! - thanks for sharing your story.


"Yet I don't regret a day or a decade that I spent doing TM and teaching for Maharishi. We did help people to open up spiritually."
