I'd still be interested to see documentation of MMY having made this claim explicitly. I'm not at all sure where you get the idea that his reputation was based on large part on a claim to be a life celibate. In what way was it based on this claim? I never was led to believe it was anything but incidental. I don't recall the point ever having been mentioned by TM teachers unless somebody asked whether MMY was celibate. And the response was always followed by what was said to be MMY's insistence that celibacy was a calling, not a discipline to be followed for its own sake, especially not if it ran contrary to one's inclinations. A big deal was never made of it. > To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!' Yahoo!
