What specific facilities are you making this claim about? It was silk 
wallpaper, not tapestries at the College of Natural Law. Maharishi didn't have 
enough aesthetic sense for art   . 

At CNL the rugs were the highest quality of thick genuine wool, in Seelisberg

they didn't even have any salt for over a month. 

 It gets so cold up there in the winter that they close the place temporarily 
and walk down to Alllahabad to enjoy some warmer weather. Go figure."
