The idea that Marshy lived in seclusion after Guru Dev kicked the bucket is 
from only one source - Marshy. I think it much more likely that he spent that 
two years lounging around on his parents couch, sucking his thumb and sulking 
since he wasn't able to rub elbows with the Hindu elite he schmoozed with at 
GD's knee.

His old man raised hell with him for lazing around not looking for a job while 
his mommy cooed to him and fed him his favorite gulab jamons - only after his 
old man tossed him out on his ear did he decide to create a fake guru persona 
and seek his fortune by blabbering and not working. Had he been more astute he 
could have made more money more quickly by selling nostrums and snake oil - it 
would be another 25 years or so till he hit upon that idea. But all he did was 
predicated on people's gullibility and willingness to believe he was above 
normal men.

Yes the Maharishi was a martyr myth, I know it well. The idea that an ambitious 
guy like Maharishi who showed no reclusive tendencies before or after the two 
years he claimed to have been camping in Uttar Kashi is absurd. He was an 
advance man for Guru Dev, that is how Jerry described it to me. He was never 
sitting around, he was constantly busy promoting the image of his teacher which 
was also a hallmark of his active life in the movement where he promoted 
himself. He had a flair for the dramatic and the sensational:Yogic flying come 
one come all! He was no more prone to sit around in a cave taking his morning 
dump outside than Donald Trump. He was used to living in the Hindu Vatican. And 
what did he do as soon as he had the means? He built cushy palaces for himself 
all over the world with silk wall paper and every other comfort he wanted.

It was no sacrifice for him to follow his ambitious nature, become a 
millionaire, bang a bunch of white chicks and jet set around the world 
collecting celebrities like Parez Hilton to popularize his brand.

Save the world from self-destruction? I don't even need to refute that claim, 
it does that fine just being repeated to shine in its absurd glory!

Maharishi's life was a total sacrifice, he could have stayed in the Himalayas 
with a few students and pursued the refinements you are mentioning. He made his 
choice and he kept saying that he was "a normal human being". He didn't have 
the time to pursue further physical developments, he hardly slept,  instead 
there was a total focus on bringing the knowledge which could, and did, save 
the world from self-destruction.

I suspect that folks were very
disappointed that like some gurus MMY didn't stay sharp in mind
until he decided it was time to bail and "drop the body."  That's
a lot of work but the whole thing about yoga is learning to
control the autonomic nervous system and keep aging away.  Some
are good at and others not.  Higher states of consciousness come
as a by-product.
