Self identification[edit]

I don't believe MMY self identifies as Hindu so have removed all of the Hindu categories. Please discuss if interested in re adding them.

Note: Removed them while I had been automatically logged out.(Littleolive oil (talk) 02:55, 22 June 2015 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Probably should adjust the info box too. (Littleolive oil (talk) 03:58, 22 June 2015 (UTC))Reply[reply]


Of course Maharishi self-identifies as Hindu. He was a disciple of Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, Shankaracharya of Jyotirmath. Sparaig2 (talk) 07:17, 19 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hagiography[edit]

Maharishi was one of the most controversial new religious figures of the 20th century. You would not know anything about that from this entry. It’s a propaganda piece, pure hagiography clearly written from a biased POV. Blackmetalskinhead (talk) 07:57, 3 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are welcome to your opinion but that doesn't really help to improve the article; please provide specific, reliably-sourced information to support your assertion so that this issue can be addressed.--Shantavira|feed me 11:08, 16 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm surprised there is no "Controversy" section! I suggest that links be accumulated here for materials to be considered as citations. I will contact appropriate people to contribute to this article, and I hope others will do the same. I'm sure this article needs going over for accuracy, too.
The "Controversy" section of the Wikipedia entry on Transcendental Meditation barely touches on this issue.

Maharishi has been honored by the Indian government several ways recently. How to include this?[edit]

  • There is a rumor that the Indian government is also issuing a commemorative postage stamp in MMY's honor, but I haven't see that yet.

How does one include these kinds of things in this article?Sparaig2 (talk) 10:11, 22 February 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

By supplying reliable sources to support your information; not Facebook posts and rumours.--Shantavira|feed me 11:12, 16 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
