Who or how many women MMY has slept with has nothing to do with whether or not TM works - it's all up to the individual. In fact, MMY has nothing to do with transcending in TM. "Confusion arises from erroneously identifying words, objects, and ideas with one another; knowledge of the cries of all creatures comes through perfect discipline of the distinctions between them." - Y.S. 3.17
Thanks Richard - An excellent point. All of the emphasis on the technique's founder probably has to do with TM's recent revival, and that many people experienced Maharishi personally. Who knows, perhaps there were articles written about Thomas Edison's transgressions, when his light-bulb first became popular?
