The TM-Free News Brief is on hiatus until next week, here's a few photos instead.
These are from my personal collection, taken by me one Saturday afternoon in the early eighties. I've long thought it rather amusing that, with the movement's superstitious obsession with avoiding south-facing doors and entrances in recent years, one of its most prominent real estate holdings had an entrance that faced exactly south.
This is the former Annapolis Hotel, 1111 H Street, Washington, DC, in the early 1980's, and like many such movement facilities it had to have a big pretentious name, so this was the "MIU College of Natural Law." (The movement has always had its own strange interpretation of what the words "research," "college" and "university" actually meant, often involving rooms full of foam rubber.) When these photos were taken, if I recall correctly, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi himself was in this building announcing various new Ayurvedic products and programs.
A few years later this building would be stripped of anything of value, sold, and flattened for a new office building. The Washington Convention Center, next door to it in the second photo, was then a brand-new building, and it's also since been demolished.
The TM-Free Blog is now on Facebook, where you'll see both pointers to new postings here at the Blog and news articles and other items as we receive them.
There's also a TM-Free Twitter stream.
