In an extraordinary spectacle that riveted the nation's attention, thousands of police officers conducted raids this morning and arrested the guru of the Aum Shinri Kyo, or "Supreme Truth," religious sect on charges of organizing the nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway system.

The guru, Shoko Asahara, was discovered meditating, apparently in a lotus position, in a secret chamber in the sect's headquarters near Mount Fuji.
