IF it were correct, why would it be necessary to 
try to convince its practitioners that it was
"the best?" Why would it be necessary to claim
it was, over and over and over and over and over?
Why would it be necessary to browbeat its prac-
titioners to make them afraid to try any other
technique of meditation or even sit in the same
room with someone practicing another technique
of meditation, so that some comparison might
be made?

Let's face it, dude...you've been brainwashed.
You've been told to look down on any form of 
meditation other than TM, so you do. 

And the amazing thing is, you do all this with-
out *ever* having tried any of these other
techniques yourself, to see if what you were
told is true. You consider giving them a try
to be "off the program" and "dangerous" and
somehow "disrespectful" to Maharishi, right?

And you think all these ideas are your own.

Yeah, right.
