Links to Ex-Followers Websites
A general information resource for anyone interested in finding out what has become of Maharaji, and also as a point of reference for former premies, current premies, aspirants, and their families. exists because of our desire to share our experiences of our involvement with Maharaji and Knowledge. New "asprirants" and existing premies are still being encouraged by him to become, or to remain, steadfast in their devotion. Maharaji attempts to surround himself only with people who are reluctant to reveal what they have learned about him. Those of us who have broken away from that devotion want to make available what we've learned in the process, so we offer freely on this site the true knowledge of our experiences.
