Too sectarian, too limited, too commercial

I don't like the Maharishi and above all the TM.

Meditation at some point goes beyond technique, mantras and prescribed goals (such as floating, being peaceful etc.) and Maharishi and his organization failed to accomplish that with TM.

It sure helped a lot of people who wouldn't have done any meditation should TM had not existed but then all these people got completely stuck in this and didn't follow and didn't try other meditations.

You have no idea

I don't think you know anything about Maharishi and TM beyond the media coverage. TM was just the first step, there are many, many other technologies, culminating in TM-Sidhi Program which produced more awakened people in the world than any other movement in the whole history. There are 40 million TM meditators and about 100, 000 advanced practitioners.

Moreover, Maharishi helped to re-established Vedic Science again, restoring Aurveda back to be India's official medical system. As well as Jyotish Astrology, Vastu planning, Defense Theory, Vedic Agriculture. The list goes on. But more importantly His Holiness made Peace a palpable reality for millions of people.

Love and Harmony, Om Shanti, shanti, shanti

> too sectarian, ...........?

May kindly mention why Mahesh Yogi was sectarian, too limited and also too commercial; however, you cannot say such words to Maharshi who was a very, very learned and highly experienced of spirituality, therefore you are supposed to have some concrete evidence which you may like to share to us.
Meaning of your second para------- "it sure helped a lot of people who wouldn't have done any meditation should TM had not existed but then all these people got stick in this and didn't try other meditation"------ is not found clear to understand regarding what you want to say through this para.

After adopting of any kind of spiritual path/meditation it is not good to give up it after sometime merely for the purpose to try another from the point of view of spiritual progress and such shifting is done by those who have not adopted ones own path with accurate understanding and faith. Please open this para for further genuine understanding to readers.
