You seem to have forgotten what Muktananda said about Maharishi. He spoke very favorable about him and his teaching. Perhaps you only hear what you really want to hear. I have met several saints in India that speak very favorable of Maharishi. The last Saint I met was a very old yogi who lived in a small room behind a cowshed, we actually had to pass the cow to enter his room in Vrindaban, who had met both Maharishi and Guru Dev. He described Maharishi as Mahapurusha. He was a very interesting fellow with what appeared to be a large following in India, but he could not understand why Maharishi didn't send his disciples on pilgrimage to the sacred rivers of Europe and America for darshan. :-) To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!'
