    Is that the same guy Stern always raves about with this new age TM bullshit? I'm reading a book about Andy Kaufman right now (he was into TM too), and supposedly the TM guru claimed people could levitate and fly like Superman with the techniques.

    I wonder why Howard never mentions the former guru's flying powers.

    TN or meditation in general is incredibly effective... but this Maharishi guy was a typical shyster ala Benny Hinn (IMO, don't sue me).

    Howard said you can learn how to meditate by going to one class and paying a small fee. I looked it up a couple years ago and it was $2,500. :goatse:

    It's the druggie asshole alright!


    That's why Howard sounds like such a tool, he will laugh and criticize people that are Christian or Catholic for believing in fairy tales and an imaginary friend in Jesus. Then turn right around and preach the complete and utter bullshit of TM and the druggie con men that continue to maintain the cult with the help of rich idiots like Howard that force his employees to indulge in it.

    Yeah, that's him. I got sucked into TM in 1972. Never practiced it though. It's too easy to lose concentration and fall asleep. I still never said my mantra out loud or told anyone. For some reason they really stress that .

    Yeah, you par their "teachers" to invent a mantra for you to repeat that will magically repair what ever plagues you. :facepalm:

    It's worked so well for Howard, that's why he must pay a high priced therapist to help him deal with life.

    Is this anywhere near the medical schools that train the doctors who come to America and become filthy rich?

    And don't forget Dr. Sarno can cure homosexuality (and he doesn't even know it!).
