Just in for a quick lunch and catching up.  Beautifully explained, Nablusoss.  
Thanks.  A taliban's version of the New TM Movement.  Very tight, I like the 
last two paragraphs that really catch the

elements in this community.  It is hard to say any one thing about meditators 
or the movement.  It's a bit of a three-ring circus to watch.
