You idiot - have you ever considered taking a course in reading comprehension?
My point is not about Indians on skins, but about men who claim to be enlightened or close to it having to fret about the vibes in the chair they want to sit on. If they are enlightened by Marshy's definition, where they are in sync with all the laws of nature, then the energy of their enlightened asses should purify any and all vibes they come into contact with. One of my early disconnects with the Movement was the same kind of thing TM is 'posed to make you strong but with all the do's and don'ts that got pasted onto the practice - don't meditate in the bed you sleep in, don't meditate with animals in the room, don't meditate with your hair wet - plus the actual Movement sanctioned crap like be sure to hide under your desk when there is a full eclipse of the sun, never mediate in a south facing building and so forth, you would think TM made you the weakest person in the world. ________________________________ From: punditster <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Tuesday, September 10, 2013 12:17 PM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: See?

Your comments on Indians sitting on skins is probably just a prejudice against Hindus, not surprisingly. Sitting on skins originated with the ancient shamans of Siberia and later the habit was imported into Northern India by the Sanskrit speaking Aryans. It's a custom at least 10,000 years old. And it makes perfect sense - when you're sitting around together it's natural to sit on a skin or two, or on a leather horse saddle. Remember, oriental carpets weren't invented yet. A skin is really just a blanket for covering or a type of insulation when sitting on the ground. There's nothing specificaly religious about it - it's just a custom of simple country people who don't have fancy wooden rocking chairs like you big city folk do. LoL! Have you ever considered taking a history course at a community college?
