Om Jeez, You skeptical guys are so in the small mind and ignorant of these things it is pathetic. George Hammond is quite okay. I'm sure he's OK as a person Buck, what everyone is getting at as that his vision was obviously internally generated from cultural beliefs he (and we) are all steeped in. I think Curtis and Barry have come up with a good mechanism that explains it in terms we already understand very well rather than relying on things we have no explanation for. Other than very uncomfortable ones that make no sense. I remember from the TMO and Bible class that the world's different religions have different concepts of what happens after death, and yet here are the gods all hanging out together. Were they lying to us before? I thought George was a sweet but deluded guy, I felt sorry for him more than I felt inspired by anything he had to say. -Buck in the Dome In FairfieldLife at Yahoo-groups it was written: ..that Hammond seemed 'fragile', might be a telling point. IMO, Hammond is delusional. It's apparent that he likes the TM movement and its tradition to the point of believing that he was once Bhrigu. He appears to be synthesizing his knowledge of the various religions and philosophies and came to the conclusion that he was once involved with the leading figures of these religions in his previous life. I'm sure he believes in what he is saying. But people will realize that his stories are coming from a delusional mind. mjackson74@...> wrote : I will have to look back at the video but I believe he also claimed to have been Shankara's daddy too. At any rate whatever success he had in the relative world he's not making much of a showing now - he only seems to impress TM junkies and "I'll believe anything cuz I am a spiritual person" like Buck.

He also claimed that Maharishi sat on a dais with two people on his right and left to imitate his father, himself. He told us that before he revealed who he was. Oddly he said that Maharishi was instructing him to do it. It is odd to me cuz I would think that as a former Brighu he should be able to make such decisions for himself, right? He had been Plato and a disciple of Jesus and he still needed daddy Maharishi's permission? That part was a bit slippery as if he was offloading the responsibility for making such an outrageous claim onto Maharishi. "The guru made me do it!" (Said in Flip Wilson's Laugh In voice!) Shankara was the incarnation of Vyasa who wrote lots of the Vedic literature including the Gita. In Hinduism, Veda Vyasa was considered to be part Vishnu with Krishna being all Vishnu all the time. But I don't think we can begrudge the guy his success. He made a bundle of cash as a lawyer and he has a hobby, being whatever it was he was laying down. It shows how complicated people are and how really energetic driven people can kick ass in business, while not being exactly consistent through their whole personality. Also think of the hutzpa this guy could direct for his own gain. It doesn't surprise me that he kinda believed in himself a little throughout his career. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mjackson74@...> wrote : how successful can he be when he is in essence claiming to be the spiritual father of the whole TM Movement and the so called holy tradition from whence TM supposedly came by being Shankara's daddy in the ancient times? Talk about wanting attention - man oh man. His sister's passing seems to have unhinged him. From: "wayback71@...
