I did not see the documentary, but I watched some of the linked clips, and also 
developed an affection for him, which grew as I learned that he "came out" and 
married his partner. 

 What a different approach than someone like Barry, who gets apoplectic with 
the fact that people enjoy their practice of TM and TMSP, and may even follow 
an inclination to participate in the Yagya program.

 Is he trying to save people's souls?

 The BBC documentary that Seraphita so fantastically turned my attention to was 
amazing. It was not only interesting in content and exposed some very annoying 
charlatans but much more importantly was the revelation of the man, of James 
Randi, who I came to love by the end of the film. His relationship with his 
young lover and the vulnerability James showed at the end when his partner was 
arrested for identity theft and then later released with a relatively light 
sentence was really moving. This small and bent little man who is such a 
powerful and gentle personality (even within his one-pointed life's purpose in 
keeping the truth ahead of the lies) was so lovely and so gifted in so many 
ways. What a little gem of a film and a treasure of a man. Thanks again for 
linking FFL to this.
