Maharishi Money RAAMed Down Our Throats

File under: The Siddhi of PR

With his advance as an alternative world government well under way, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his TMers have already embarked on Phase II of their world domination scheme: their own monetary system based on a bank note called the Raam.

We're floored by the astonishing brilliance of the mad Maharishi's play. The basis of exchange is one of the pillars of human society. Civilization formed in response to the phenomenon of trade between individuals and groups. In other words: it's the money, stupid!

With all those Raams out there, the Maharishi will basically own his own economy, and thus the Global Country for World Peace will become a true political entity instead of being a redundantly-titled alternaculture based on the Maharishi's interpretation of "Vedic principles" and his appetite for name and fame.

Plus, he should be able to afford better groupies now.

Maharishi started out to do good in the world and his work from the 1950's -the mid 70's brought a lot of awareness about meditation and fundemental spiritual truths to the masses. I practiced his techniques and taught his meditation for many years. But when he began with the siddhis, it got more and more weird.

Most of the large "spiritual" groups are manned and peopled by ex TMers. The new Deeksha group which has been around for a long time, is using many of the tactics learned from Maharishi. Instead of focussing on Maharishi, whose influence is gone except in the realm of expensive ayurvedic products and other businesses, etc. Please let people know as much as possible about this new cult, which is sweeping the world with the same nasty bullshit.

So far I have asked 3 separate people to remove my name from their e-mail lists about Deeksha. The last few have been about "scientific research" which proves Deeksha is a great thing. But I junked them. When, not if, I get the next unasked for information about this cult group, I will send it to you. Unasked for e-mail is just a subtle form of cult love bombing. There is little to no respect shown for people already on a path and not "seeking".
