Do the MT'ers push the meditators to become siddhas like the regular
Non sequitur. It has already been established that the Rama cult members
were pushed to become "siddhas". On hundreds of occasions Rama used to
demonstrate siddhi accomplishments to his students, but only one or two
bought into the scam and neither, according to Barry, ever managed to
levitate, or even sit still during a meditation retreat, despite
donating thousands of dollars to Lenz. Go figure.
/"The person levitating or flying through the air was a guy named
Frederick Lenz, who also called himself Rama. He taught a hodge-podge of
things from different traditions, but the majority of them were
Buddhist. He didn't teach how to do this stuff directly; he just did it.
As far as I know, none of his students ever developed the knack."/ -

Hey Sal, you ever do any rounding in this joint?
Nope, I never met any of the teachers there either. They were leaving
just as I started working for HQ. In fact I was on the conference call
when they started complaining about Marshy's new pricing scheme, it
was my first glimpse of collective coherence or "field independence"
as the case may be ;-)
Nice building though, I know TMers who go on courses there (shock,
horror. They only tell me about it under dire injunctions of silence)
and who enjoy the non-movementness of it all. This is what TM is all
about for me, weekends in stately homes with good food and company and
no Bevan Morris and John Hagelin in sight, cosy and fun and not too
religious - that's how it should have stayed.
The MT are cheap though and they are successful, maybe those things
are coincident but they don't have anything (or anyone) to put you
off, the last official introduction tape I saw was appalling. It had
the usual mood-making bliss bunnies in suits going on and on about
vedic "science" and sthapatya veda even! It put me off and I'd been
doing it 15 years at the time, can't imagine what newbies thought
