maybe it has been discussed before here. i know that it is a religion he inherited from raye an he has passed onto ....beth? i think his kids worship yahweh. i beleive one has to pay to get his "secret word" mantra from the maharishi and pay to receive counseling, not unlike scientology. i know that it is a somewhat vanity religion in that they seem to attract and seek out rich people and celebrity, much respect to donovan and david lynch. it seems to be one, if not the major influence on stern, he practices twice a day i beleive. i am just curious what tou all think about it. i have been meditating for years, the white plum zazen method and also been a stern listener since day one los angeles, thanks.
