Thomas Pilarzyk described the festival as the "most important development" in the American movement's history.[47] James V. Downton opined that the movement ultimately failed in achieving its millennial dream of world peace.[131] The failure to meet expectations, along with the debt and bad press, led to significant changes in the movement.[132]

Scholars describe 1973 as the peak year of the movement,[133][134] or mention a significant drop in new followers.[135] However, Roger E. Olson wrote that "the movement continued to attract large numbers of mainly counterculture followers" despite the disappointments.[50] The financial crisis required retrenchment and reorganization.[47][122][136] After the festival, Maharaj Ji began taking greater responsibility in the movement; he took administrative control of the DLM's US branch within a month of turning 16.[12] The following year he got married and became an emancipated minor. Disagreements between Maharaj Ji and his family led to the movement being split between a Western branch, led by Maharaj Ji, and an Indian branch, run by his mother and Bal Bhagwan Ji.[137]
