Guru News Roundup

File under: The Siddhi of PR

• Steven Novella of the New Haven Advocate handily debunks JZ Knight's use of quantum mechanics as a cult-recruitment ploy in her film, What The Bleep Do We Know.

• Canadian TM™ers take it to the schools in their attempt to corner the market on mantra meditation, complete with their doctored research and pie-in-the-sky assertions about the efficacy of TM™ as means of supernatural social reform.

Dahn Yoga takes another hit from a local news org, this time in Connecticut. Will they ever live down the forced death march of one of their students in Arizona last year?

Just checking to see if you had covered this Dahn thang.

Don't you just love the way these things spring up brand new with claims of being 5000 years old?

It's a good measure of a guru's bullshit, how "new", unprecedented and special their teachings are.
