Jai Guru Deva Om

The Economist said farewell to the Maharishi this week, revealing what Slate calls “an unexpected affection for the recently deceased… guru to the Beatles.”

My favorite part of the Economist piece is the following:

“…  his message was entirely laudable. He did not promote a cult or even a mainstream religion preaching original sin, purgatory and the likelihood of eternal damnation. He just wanted to end poverty, teach people how to achieve personal fulfilment and help them to discover “Heaven on Earth in this generation”. And yogic flying, of course.” [link]
