It's not odd. Even though many naturally see Maharishi as their guru because he was the one we interacted with for decades, he himself always reminded us from where the teaching came. He even said that Guru Dev is our Guru, not him. It's rather obvious that Guru Dev is the teacher for those who perhaps never met Maharishi.

On the one hand, overflowing gratitude to Maharishi, but the overflowing love always flows to Guru Dev. Not that I ever think twice about it. :-) Welcome Tormod, I am 1/8 Norwegian (paternal grandmother was 1/2), though have not yet visited there, in this lifetime. I was pleasantly surprised to read recently that Norway is the wealthiest country in the world - No wonder TM is so popular there. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : Hello Tormod, you seem to be a reasonable fellow. Please note that my comment was not directed at you specifically but rather in the direction of Paul Mason based on a comment Maharishi made some years ago that in the future some will try to sow discontent and doubts by trying to convince people of how devoted they are to Guru Dev. Their ultimate motifs could be to weaken the practice of meditation amongst TM'ers. It's something to keep in mind, nothing to be overly concerned about. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <tkinnes@...> wrote : Hei (Norwegian greeting), Thanks! I have no idea of Nabby's identity, and may not try to find out either. Now, there is one more thing - Maharishi did a lot to keep the TM movement rolling, and TM surely helps a lot. I am glad that much research has confirmed it. I have a lot to be grateful for - my life, too, I can tell. Loving greetings, -- Tormod Kinnes
