Really? SSRS has how many trained teachers in how many places in the 
world? Tucson, AZ, one of the smallest "large cities" inthe USA has a 
recertified couple, who have just signed the lease for their new SV-
compliant Maharishi Center (not palace), and are teaching TM 
regularly. FOr anyone seriouslyinterested in TM who can't afford it, 
they can point them tothe CitiBank loans and/or David Lynch's 
foundation. And MMY may provide auxiliary services to those who want 
them, such as Ayurveda and SV design, etc., but there is no 
requirement that anyone participate in such services.

BTW, why do you call SSRS or by implication, TM, Neo-Hindu meditation?
