Thanks Curtis - just shows what dummies we can be - I am referring to myself here - one of the things I never could understand about the Movement was its seeming unending lust for real estate. Why would they keep buying properties and claiming they were going to build such and so on them, then do nothing with them till they sold them later on? I never realized they were doing it to flip the property and make a profit. I just thought it was either some bizarre penchant Marshy had or the Movement's famous inefficiency. Thanks for enlightening me on this point.

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 the chairs were gold leafed. Your denial of the luxury he lived in is like him claiming he had no pockets in his dhoti, a ridiculous cover up attempt. That is not to say that he was not cheap about his facilities and didn't let them run down into disrepair. But that is because his primary activity was real estate investment and rehabbing facilities using unpaid labor to flip them for a profit. Selling TM was way down the list of his money making schemes. Or taking care of his full time people with extravagances like health care. Your routine only works on people who were not living in his facilities for years. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : That's right and when Curtis vent his anger his Pitta gets so out of control that he looses all sense of right and wrong. Was he ever personally involved in building any of Maharishi's rooms, no. But I was, and I happen to know there was no silk tapestry anywhere, the carpets we always got for a bargain somewhere and the furniture was from IKEA. It looks great from a distance and on tape but was cheaper to decorate than any of my own flats. "According to what I've read, they didn't have indoor toilets and running hot and cold water up at the SBS Jyotir monestery. During one winter I read that 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."
