 Indeed. And it was put forward by the infamous Buddhist that used to post 
here, Vaj.

 Of course it was rubbish but it comes from the same sort of place that the 
other rumours have, the place where Marshy has to be a superman, obviously it's 
more inspiring if your guru has amazing powers like walking on water. That's 
why they invent these stories, it makes the decision to follow him to be a more 
important one than just choosing a type of meditation. Divine assurance perhaps.

 But I don't think Vaj invented it, it was part of Earl Kaplan's letter and he 
got it from whatever source in India he spoke to. I felt a bit sorry for him 
because he got duped by one cult and ran straight into the arms of another. I 
hope he's got some smarts at last and realised there is no authority but

   I think I asked this once a long time ago, but I am posting this again if so:

 What was the most absurd TM rumor you ever heard? 

 The most absurd rumor I ever heard was on an internet discussion group. 
 The rumor posted claimed that the Maharishi had murdered his master SBS, by 
poisoning his food in a conspiracy with the Jyotirmath Ashram cook.
 The motive apparently was for the Mahesh Yogi to get SBS's special ring and 
ruby-encrusted yantra. And, with a forged will, the cook would get the 
Shankaracharya highchair at the Upper Kashi.
 As far as rumors go, it is going to be difficult to top this one.

 This would be something that was not part of the official TM cannon, nor any 
of the majorly accepted ones (like Marshy's enlightened, TM brings 
enlightenment or yogic flying brings world peace)

 I am talking about the boundless rumors we all heard on courses and in TM 
facilities and from TM old timers.

 Mine would I think have to be the idea that having animals around when you are 
meditating drains your energy. That one supposedly came from Marshy himself but 
who knows.

 Other than that it would be Claire Baxter's classic never meditate with your 
hair wet because the stress you release comes out of your crown chakra, and if 
your hair is wet the stress slides down your hair and goes into your lower 


 I include that one second, just because I only heard it from that one person 
and the animal energy drain was one I heard a lot from lots of different 


 How bout yours? Most absurd TM rumor?
