Something that I've noticed about Maharishi's introduction of new
aspects of knowledge. He introduces something and says that it will be
a 'do it yourself' or low cost somthing for everyone, and then when
and if it actually gets implemented the price becomes much, much
higher and it's not for everyone anymore. Ayuervedic knowledge, Vedic
Vibration, jyotish, advanced techniques and many other things were
promoted this way. Get the interest up and then raise the price.
