Maharishijuana

File under: The Siddhi of PR

Iowa is letting TM™ers take over 84 acres adjacent to their little heaven on the plains, Maharishi Vedic City. Apparently, it's a lot more heavenly than we imagined, but only if you know how to read the code:
The city of 420 is considered a spiritual center of the Transcendental Meditation movement in the United States.
No wonder that little old coot is so interested in organic farming! And then there's where he lives: Lelystad, The Netherlands, right next to Amsterdam.

Suddenly, it's all so clear. The grandiose vision of world domination, his hiding from the world, the denial of his many failures... it's all just simple pot paranoia.

Keep firing it up, MMY! We know we will.

While there is a TM presence in Lelystad, Maharishi actually lives down near the German border in Vlodrop.

Yes, he is always hiding from the world, especially in some European cities, in his chamber underneath his dark shades since he is blind. He certainly wants to take over the wold because he wants to implement his own currency called "The Ram".
I suppose he is hiding because he is afraid to be shot -maybe.

No, no, Jody, it's far worse than that. 4/20 is Hitler's birthday.

Jody, things must be slow at guruphiliac when you have to post anything about the Maharishi, especially when you suggest that drug use is part of his own life. As far as I know the man may not even be alive. It is not unknown in India for the followers of "Yogis" to claim their masters have gone into seclusion, when in truth they are dead. Why not just go all the way and say that Maharishi is dead.

Sadly, that's true.

Send in your tips, folks!

especially when you suggest that drug use is part of his own life.

A little of Mother's bounty never hurt anyone. I like to consider it a "remedy." I'd never fault anyone for using it. Ramakrishna was known to smoke pot. If it was good enough for him, it should be good enough for MMY.

Why not just go all the way and say that Maharishi is dead.

Because it's more fun to say he might be stoned.

Jody, when you say, "Because it's more fun to say he might be stoned. (than dead)", maybe it's my imagination but I am sensing that in all the years you have been alerting us about the pitfalls of Guru Bhakti, you have developed some compassion for these fallen angels. Would you rather see Maharishi stoned than dead because the world will be a little less nutty and alive if he is dead or because even the most self aggrandizing flim flammers have a soul and are worthy of forgiveness?

I don't want to see anyone dead for various reasons, one being I wouldn't have as many subjects to skewer. They may be self-aggrandizing assholes, but that doesn't mean the folks who've allowed themselves to be duped didn't deserve to be. In a healthy ecosystem, you still have leeches and mosquitos.

........
Jody if you had been raised on the Good Book like myself you would know that such critters as mosquitoes, leeches, head lice, chiggers, chinamen and yankees will all be missin from the New Earth when the New Heaven descends upon those of us who are left when Jesus gets through swingin that bloody sword of his! I'm not sure I'm gonna make it either! By the way, you have any idea where I can get hold of some of this Mother's bounty in Dime Box?

Chuckji, right this very second I'm sitting right in the middle of Mother's big basket of bounty, Mendocino County, California. I'm looking out over the presently mild Pacific Ocean, deer playing in the backyard, fog bank in a holding pattern just off the coast while the whales spout as they meander down toward Mexico.

Here, the bounty grows all around us, protected by locked gates and folks you just don't want to mess with, unless you meet 'em in the grocery store or coffee shop.

I know it's a long way from Dime Box, but if you ever get up this way, I will surely be able to hook you up.

Thanks, Jody. Hey this Mendocino County, California sounds a lot like East Texas if you take away the mountains, ocean, whales, Mother's bounty, etc and just leave the locked gates and the folks you don't want to mess with!
I thought you lived in New Mexico...

I'm in CA because my brother is getting married. He owns a little spread right on the ocean, although it's about one hundred feet down from where the land ends to where the water begins.

Imagine a million coconut trees
and another million tropical plants
spread in a area of some 40,000 hectares, washed a bit in its fringes by a somewhat clean and gentle backwaters, now try to visualize a very badly maintained
farmhouse right in the middle of it with some rickety juked out cars parked and a brand new ford SUV, and a double decked house with big spread terrace and smell
of fresh and raw weeds, follow carefully and can you locate those
200 odd pots with weeds in full bloom at the south east corner of the terrace? Well Well, you got that picture almost right.

My papa predicted long ago, when i was too small to undo my own knickers "someday you will be a mafiosi, minus that big black limousine " and insha allah,
he seem to have predicted right.

If i strike a decent deal of the bounty with the cartel in town then i decided to send a 10 percent proceedings to Guruphiliac as a 'dakshina' (offerings).

Besides that, Jody ! I think chuckji would volunteer to sell those sundried mule cakes at the dime box square to raise funds for the running of GP.

If betty needs my help i can give her some fabulous first hand ideas
for the fund raising...

PS- I got this big rusted gates too which are locked and monitored by a singular spycam which needs some wiping since the monsoon rains lashed out quite badly.

..................

This brings up two issues, Jody; Number one is if your brother can find some gal to marry (I'm assumin it's a gal even if he does live in Calihornia), then genetically speakin, you should not be unmarriable your own self! Number two is if your brother owns a spread in this Mendachinco County, why are you so hand to mouth that we have to see these Maharisky and Kracki types advertisin here at Guruphiliac?! It's like givin these bad boys a toilet bowl to shit in before we wipe their asses and flush both them and their bullshit down the self same toilet!!

All that said, it do sound like a beautiful spot and both Chuck and mule wish you, your brother and his bride a pristine and beautiful weddin... I just wish I could have been there to officiate, to sup from the Mother's bounty, and to see what fried okra tastes like on the other side of this great country our ours! Have a wonderfilled weekend, Jody!

As with Jody’s brother’s place, semblance, if I imagine pine trees in the place of coconut and the “weeds” you speak of are your actual weeds–as in johnson grass or bull nettle, this could be a place over in Love Lady, Texas owned by my Daddy’s cousin Junior who is also a second cousin by marriage and a third cousin once removed by the only divorce ever to take place in the Chuck family tree! The brand new ford SUV would have to be the sherrif’s come out to tell Junior that his neighbors are complainin about the smell from his hog lot and half acre chicken and egg operation...

Semblance your place does sound beautiful! I dare say that you make a mafioso with a heart of gold!

Let's hear your ideas, semmy, 'cause I could certainly use a few more pesos. After training me maybe you could train our president. One thing--no drug dealing for me--- and the Bushs' already know that trade so can you come up with something else, please?

People like you made india poor while your have become richer and richer. If you dont want to like the guru sampradaya why you like money only ? Why cant you sell your proeprty and feed the poor? If money is important to yu and people here, then gurus are also same to us,. you are shame to india and the greatness. Can you tell me your addres if you are so great>?

Sounds awesome, Semb. If I ever get to Mother Bharat, I'd love to come check it out. You are welcome to visit GpHQ in northern NM, but I can't boast the same agricultural benefits, although chances are I'll have enough supply to keep our altitudes adjusted.

Chuckji ! i think you are honest about that. The place indeed is a much more livable than what i had described. As for the golden heart, thanks chuckji, for such unheard kind words. I dont know if i deserve such foriegn words. But I have to come to you later in my life to buy that big black limo just to prove my senior, he is not that right. Btw, how do you keep a track of all the branches of your family tree? Its something i just cant do. Simply Impossible.

Betty im touched by the fact you have given this bumper of a
chance. I need to now cook up something real fast, because i never thought you would allow me to do this...

Nobody hates a guru here. Only those who got that oval shaped shiny thing stuck around the head gets bashed up a bit. I have many gurus including the one(featured in Gp some 10 posts ago)who seem to have passed the tough quality control by jody, as he probably deserved.

http://guruphiliac.blogspot.com/2007/10/junkyard-full-of-gold.html

Swami A, may not agree or even be aware of it, but i consider him as one for restoring my distorted
sanity back in me and exercising those strange 'miracles' to see life in the right light, without a fuss or glitz this goneby couple years. Jody appears to know the good ones from the rotten lot for sure. Dear anon, you need to sit back for some deep reflections on your pathetic scene in life and should try to get out of it..

Im thrilled Jody. Truly amazing.
Hope you decide on that one early. I can harvest the weeds with a little bit help from you my friend !!! It would be a great honor to visit the Gp HQ to me personally... I still cant beat this stuff, Jody.

It ain't actually all that hard in East Texas for good reasons. Number one is we never make eye contact with our women folk. A simple "yes mam" or "no mam" (pronounced “yes’m” or “no’m”) usually passes as recognizin em! Number 2 is that all of the men are named either Luther, Prather, Junior, Bubba, or Chuck! They are all either uncle, cousin, or church brothers, so all a man has to do is remember that! The fact that most of em could be both uncle and cousin is not mentioned! I had one grandpa who was uncle and cousin tambien! Most of the time our mouths are full of food or a wad of Red Man chewin tobacca, so it don't much matter what you say cause nobody can understand the words even if they was listenin! This all keeps life simple in and around Dime Box!
