Maybe so, I have had the same experience, and don't get me wrong, I 
don't like the way the movement is going in many areas, and question 
many things, but I am objective when it comes to comparing the 
successes of techniques. Can anyone here name ANY movement that has 
received $20 million+ from US NIH in research grants, or published 
in 3 or 4 peer-reviewed scientific journals in the last 18 months, 
or has been recently researched at 4 or 5 major universities, or 
when was it last taught in an accredited US university and from 
kindergarten through PHD, or when was it last introduced to a US 
public school? 
I am sure these others MAY be a good thing, but they have barely 
even begun where Maharishi was 40 years ago, and have no proof of 
their efficacy....only heresay.

Go ahead, anyone...those who keep saying TM is floundering and their 
movement is more alive....let them show anything even REMOTELY close 
to the above achievements...which are only a few of Maharishi's.
