Far be it from me to be cynical :-), but I suspect a
Chopra PR campaign behind all these "blast from the
past" articles. According to Amazon, Chopra has 
released six books or CDs in the last two months, 
none of which are selling particularly well com-
pared to his former products. He also has another 
six books or CDs announced and scheduled for release 
in the next few months.

Duh. Can you say "trade on past association with 
famous people like the Beatles" to get a few mentions
in the press and increase sales?  T'would seem that
he learned at least one lesson well from Maharishi.  :-)
