I still say, that Maharishi, no matter how enlightened he is;
He is 89 years old now...
He can't travel around and see things for himself, 
Like he used to.
Therefore, he is much more dependent on the people around him;
For their advice, and their world view.
So, he surrounded himself with a certain type group of people.
Not that diverse at all.
So, this is the major contradiction, in Maharishi's personality.
He wants to humbly serve Guru Dev, and bring this teaching to the 
While at the same time; he's been trying to impress everyone;
That he is somehow, Like a King; 
Trapped by his own Castle.

While his teacher, 
Guru Dev...
Who, spent, so, so,  many years in seclusion,
And many years among the poor and hungry, and tired, of India.
Maharishi has naturally become, like the rest of us;
Spoiled by status and the modern conveniences.
I-Pod's etc...

So, he just kind of lives of the fringes of the suburbs;
Where the poor are not around, to complain.
Where there are no Mexicans cutting the lawn.
Where there are really no real people.
Besides the one's.
Who were with Maharishi long ago..
I hope sometimes he will remember that time, and that place.
Long ago, and far away...
