Yes the Maharishi was a martyr myth, I know it well.
/After he graduated from university, MMY apparently worked for a number
of years in a factory. According to what I've read, he gave up his job
to become a celibate student under SBS - that alone makes him a martyr,
since he could have got married and had a career; he could have stayed
at home instead of touring the world for forty years trying to help
people with declining brain function. Case in point./
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.
/Apparently everyone that wants to get to the Upper Kashi has to hike up
there, so that itself indicates a certain desire to be reclusive.

during the tourist season./
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 himself a cave to meditate in out in the back of beyond?/
He built cushy palaces for himself all over the world with silk wall
paper and every other comfort he wanted.
/For the last twenty years of his life, MMY lived in a two room
apartment in a log cabin. He neither drank nor smoked nor took drugs,
according to what I've read. /
It was no sacrifice for him to follow his ambitious nature, become a
millionaire, bang a bunch of white chicks
/This sounds like a double standard - you've probably banged a few
chicks yourself, maybe a few black ones too, being a singer and band
member and all. So why shouldn't a yogi guy get to bang a few white
chicks, since he was white himself. Sometimes you sound prejudiced, even
JELLOS. Go figure./
and jet set around the world collecting celebrities like Parez Hilton
to popularize his brand.
/The big difference, as I see it, is that he took a jet to get around
while you probably took a cab around to popularize your band, or a city
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!
/Non sequitur./ /Most blues singers have a similar message - to save the
world from self-destruction - using trance and rhythm to get into a
grove based on the religious music of the Afro-American community, or
spirituals. There are very few blues men that were not believers in
heaven and hell and the glory of the Lord./
