Maharishi Haunted In His Grave By The Beatles
File under: Satscams and The Siddhi of PR
From the last media interview given by the Maharishi in his world-domination lair in Holland, 2006:
My one small victory was that I managed to ask him - ever so politely - about The Beatles.Heh heh. Searching Yahoo News photos with the term "spiritual guru" turned up only this:
Given all the bad blood, did he regret his involvement with the band who made him a household name?
Suddenly, all that serenity evaporated and the mystic came over all mortal.
"Forget about it!" he spluttered furiously.
"If at all, (The) Beatles became substantial by my contact.
"I did not become great by association of The Beatles! Beatles make Maharishi great? Pah! It is a waste of thought."
Unfortunately, there are still monstrosities of grandiosity roaming the street, taking people's money for a little sand on the beach by putting spiritual truth on the corner like a crackhead hooker:
Despite their estrangement, the student has learned very well from his master. We hereby proclaim Sri Sri Ravi Shankar the most grandiose big-time guru (Da is working a humble artist persona at the moment) on the entire planet. Huzzah!
