MMY/TMO definitely know how to market.  Maybe they've helped renew
interest in vedic approaches to life, esp in India.  Whether this is a
good thing or not depends I think on the approach.  Personally I've
gotten turned off to most things "vedic", based on my experience with
m-ayurved, m-jyotish and the like which have seemed superficial,
non-objective and expensive approaches to dealing with life's issues.
 Also, if India going vedic means turning anti-science and
pro-theocracy, then I'd say it's a bad thing.

I'm sure many people have benefitted from ayurved for dealing with
imbalances and improving their daily routine.  OTOH, recently another
MD died from cancer w/o seeking medical treatment.  I have no idea
what the number is, but many hard core mov't types have died or at
least experience lots of suffering due to the attitude that "maharishi
ayurved is all you need" to treat health problems.
