   Barry, your greatness is unparalleled.

 Barry is one of the greatest cases of cognitive dissonance that I have ever 
seen on discussion group:
 He believes his Facebook friends are stalking him, yet he sent them an invite. 
Everyone stalked him over here, but he sent a message challenging us to a 
debate. We hate him because we are so JELLOS of his temporary subjective, 
enlightenment experiences. You need to understand, Steve, that here is a guy 
that spent decades reading wisdom books and chasing after the enlightenment 
experience; donating tens of thousands of dollars just to witness magic tricks 
performed on a stage. Yet, he still can't perform a single magic trick, he 
isn't enlightened, he can't fly or levitate himself, or even PROVE a single 
spiritual experience.
 For all his effort, his spiritual quest was a total loss according to Xeno. 
Barry got nothing, nada, bupkis. He got the T-shirt but he didn't even get a 
spiritual name and had to make up one - Uncle Tantra - when he wrote his own 
wisdom book.
 After he got kicked out of the cult, in an act of lonely desperation he went 
on social media to try and teach others how to act enlightened, but instead he 
was humiliated and got the shit beat out him for ten years by The Corrector. 
 We need to help this guy but he doesn't seem to want any help from his 
friends. Go figure.

 This story from the Puranas is the very reason for my Do Not Read List. 
 My stalkers are free to pick up any of my qualities that they wish to by 
focusing so intently on their hatred for me, while by ignoring them and not 
even reading what they write I pick up nothing from them. Win-win.  :-)

   Thanks Michael and Barry. The funniest kicker to the story is that according 
to the Puranas, a demon can gain enlightenment by a steady opposition to 
Krishna. So the only thing that will happen from this circle jerk is that we 
gain Maharishi's "purity" and Buck gains our "impurity."
 Not a bad deal huh?!

 One of the bests post I have ever seen on FFL - thanks Curtis. Very 
interesting to read Marshy's pontifications in context.

   C: Since Buck decided to take a swipe at me well I have been off the board, 
I will take a moment to make my own case: that Buck comically misunderstands 
the meaning of Maharishi's message as usual and idiotically thinks it might 
serve as a weapon against people who think differently than he does. The 
hysterical perversion of the intention of Maharishi's words being used as a 
justification of his doing EXACTLY what Maharishi is warning against is too 
good to miss. Plus it gives me a chance to comment on Maharishi's style of self 
promotions as a special guy that seems to have worked so well on Buck. My 
comments will be interspersed with Maharishi's below
 Don't Speak Ill, Remain Pure, 1964
 Everyone has to discharge one's duty towards himself and towards spreading of 
this meditation in whatever capacity one can. And never undermine any other's 
attempt or desires in whatever humble way it may be.
 C: The context is his teachers who were bitching about each other. Maharishi 
wants them to get back to work pitching his product and STFU about their 
personality problems with each other. 
 One thing of very great importance: that now when you have been meditating for 
some time, purity has grown in life quite a lot. As the mind gains more and 
more of the Being, mind becomes more and more pure.
 C: Again setting the context, this applies to those who are of a level of 
purity where this kind of magical effect takes place. He is not making a broad 
statement about all people and is not addressing this to non meditators. By 
applying it to Barry and Michael and me, Buck is saying that our consciousness 
is as pure as his so this should be a problem for us too. In Maharish's system, 
like that of the Laws of Manu, there are different instructions for behavior 
for each level of consciousness. He is not instructing Buck to run around like 
a clucking hen berating people like me who are acting according to my own level 
of consciousness according to his system. He is directing this to insiders who 
want or care about his opinions. It is not a scold to be used to beat others 
over the head, it is an insiders tip for insiders.
 But one thing which you have to be very cautious about is that you don't think 
evil of anyone, don't speak ill of anyone. Otherwise speaking ill and thinking 
ill of someone, dwelling on the weaknesses of someone, all their bad qualities 
come to your heart; [this way] you get your heart and mind spoiled.
 C: Here is where it gets even funnier. For Buck worry to be valid, the things 
we are saying about Maharishi must be true. He is not denying that people have 
real "weaknesses", he is saying that those real weakness come into your heart 
for paying attention to them. So only in the case where Maharishi is an actual 
con man shyster, or whatever other criticism had been leveled does this 
influence come into play. And none of it has anything to do with my own 
critiques of Maharishi's belief system. He is not condemning all philosophical 
disagreement or he would be condemning Shankara's main activity traveling 
around India and debating with and arguing his points with opposing view 
points. Buck is misusing the intention of this instruction because he has 
intellectual boundary problems with people who don't share his provincial view 
of the world.
 So when through meditation, purity is growing in life, we don't invite this 
mud from outside to make us impure anymore. We have to be cautious against our 
thoughts that we don't think ill of anyone, and we don't do ill to anyone 
 C: Again, the point is for people who in the system have gained this imaginary 
purity, it is not a universal instruction for outsiders.
 Speaking ill of others is a very bad.... We say it makes the cloth dirty, 
makes the whole personality very dirty and impure. That we have to guard 
against in our dealings and feelings with people. Very important; very, very 
important.  It is as important as daily practice of meditation.
 C: So WTF is Buck doing chasing us around, drawing our "mud" to himself? If 
what we are doing it is impure, then by dwelling on and attacking us Buck is 
violating the very purpose of the instruction, while at the same time thinking 
it is a way to put us down? Now THAT's funny.
 In the olden days in India, there was a practice that if some man did some 
great sin, then the way to repent it was that he would cover his body with a 
cloth like that and will go to any village. Standing out of the village, he 
would shout out: my name is such and such, and I come from that village, and I 
happened to be doing like that and like that and like that. He would just 
announce it and go ahead, and keep on announcing from village to village.
 And the effect was: all the people who heard him, if in their evening meetings 
with their fellow men, they talk about that, then the contention is that they 
partake of his sin and after some time he becomes pure. Just by talking about 
the sinner, the people who talk about him share his sin.
 This is very dangerous. Someone has done something wrong and if we dwell on 
that and talk it over with someone, we have been affected by that sin and we 
spread that sin; we partake of his sin and take it upon us.
 C: I agree with Maharishi that olden day India was full of idiotic practices.
 Anyone who has done any mistake there or there or there, we just don't speak 
of it.  Otherwise we
