AS a practitioner of TM and vistor(past devotee?) to many of Maharishi's establishments including MUM in Fairfield, Ohio, I believe strongly that what started out as a genuine movement to educate about and enhance the potential power of the mind, has become nothing more than a warped cult. Today the solicitaion and accumulation of wealth as well as 'mindless' control over devotees takes precedence over the development of the human spirit and/or mind. What a pity, when TM is such a good instrument for the development of our deeper potentials. Be mindful then that you seek only the 'guru' inside and jump out of these cults as early as you can.
