My paradox with MMY has been the very deep spiritual experiences that his techniques and his presence have triggered in me.
Hi, Lehmann -- I have a question and I am not asking it to provoke an argument or to criticize or anything of that kind. I am just wondering how you [i:7a69506389]know[/i:7a69506389] that you had a very deep spiritual experience?
This is what people said about LSD and all the toys of the 60's. After TM, I explored Zen, Vajrayana and Theravada Buddhism. This material has a very long history and has been practised by lots of folks. No one ever mentioned anything about any [i:7a69506389]deep spiritual experiences.[/i:7a69506389] Although many talked about personal insights, something I rarely, very rarely heard around Mahesh.
I spent a lot of time with Mahesh and never heard any convincing explanation for what deep spiritual experiences might be or what, exactly "spiritual" really meant. It always seemed that he said whatever people seemed to want to hear.
I'd really like to hear about your experiences. What, to you, is, actually, a deep spiritual experience all about?
If TM is working for you and your are, in good, old fashioned Star Trek terms living well and prospering, then it's a good thing[i:7a69506389] for you.[/i:7a69506389] I taught lots of folks and attended many ttc's. TM is definitely NOT universally a good thing for everyone.
