Last fall, after the events of Sept. 11, the maharishi announced that if some government gave him a billion dollars, he would end terrorism and create peace by hiring 40,000 yogic fliers to start hopping full time. No government took him up on the offer, which clearly irks him.
"I’m not going to waste my time convincing governments," he said yesterday. "I’m going to create these groups that will create coherency in every country."
When government money failed to materialize, the maharishi decided to fund his project through bonds issued by the Global Country of World Peace, which he founded last year as a virtual nation without any actual land.

… on the religiosity of Scientology, I testified about my own role in creating the ”religious image” that ranged from the programs that Dept. 20 had back in the early 70s (during the FDA trial) to do everything possible to make Scientology appear to be a religion, e.g., get crosses up, find a room and create a chapel, start ”Sunday Services,” get the org listed in the phone book under ”churches” etc.
I also testified how I had obtained ”religious recognition” for Scientology from the Labor and State Departments. (More on this in a moment.)
When it came to offering my opinion, I said that I don’t consider Scientology to be a ”religion” because it wasn’t being conducted as such in good faith.
