Yep, the TMO's corporate culture could stand some improvement.
Fortunately or otherwise, the members of that organization are held
almost magnetically to Maharishi, through their desire to gain what
he has; his 'Maharishi-ness'.
The contrast there, between the Self realization of Maharishi and
the Self realization of the members of the TMO is great enough that
they find themselves rigidly adhering to whatever he says. His
personality, Indian culture, reflection of his Master, and dharma in
the warrior caste play a part as well.
But the main thing is the gulf that separates their consciousness
from his. Much like we control the actions of a child when it is
very little, and less so when it begins to understand the ways of
the world. Similarly, they are rigidly controlled now, and hence
rigidly control themselves and those around them. Once they grow up
some, if the TMO still exists, this should lessen. There are
probably pockets of greater spiritual maturity within the TMO, but
that is pure speculation on my part.
Maharishi, through Guru Dev, is a very, very powerful man, whose
goal is to bring enlightenment to the world. Not an easy task,
though he has enlarged his consciousness through the guidance and
grace of Guru Dev to be able to do so. Those around him are so
deeply fried as a result, they also need the rigidity of action and
absolute adherence to rules to avoid going crazy.
I hope that they are enjoying themselves along the way!
