listed at meditationsociety.org. I'm not doubting that
it works, just the idea that you have to PAY for it, and
the idea that it's better than other, more economical
But the thing that really gets my panties knotted is the
idea that its effacacy is due to a magical transmission that
comes from a "master." This idea is clearly in the realm
of magical thinking and is no better than a fairy tale.
But this fairy tale is being used to promote the practice.
That's what's BS about it. It's a marketing hook along
the lines of those used by snake oil salesman. The so-called
"masters" powers are no more effective than those of my
dog. The practice may work, but it works by means of
creating sattvas in the mind, not because some guru
somewhere is dosing you with a "transmission."
