Spokespeople for TM organizations extoll Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as a great spiritual leader, scientist, humanitarian, world leader; as a man of nearly divine brilliance, wisdom, holiness, insight, vision, and so on.
So I thought it might be useful for TM-Free to compile a list of outrageous quotations from Mahesh, as a way of deflating the TMO's claims.
Also, maybe this list will be helpful for people who are working on their recovery from TM mind control.
Here's my favorite quote from Mahesh:
"Having achieved world peace, we are now on the way to creating Heaven on Earth...." (From www.maharishi.org/adv_techniques/index.html. This web page was last updated April 2007.)
Please contribute your most outrageous quote(s) in the "Comments" section. List the source or context if you know it. Paraphrases from memory are fine too; please note "from memory" and context if possible.
