Pearls of love? Or death?

book.JPG Here's the longer version -- with all the, um, juicy details.

We at received an anonymous donation of ENERGOL-MA, complete with original wrapping. Our source indicated that these pills were top-secret in the movement and being used by the Purusha celibate monks.

Whoa! Back the truck up. Celibate Purusha is supposedly using these "marital aids"?

Our source was told that for the male body to make Soma out of sperm, there must be some sperm present in the body. And simple celibacy causes the sperm to dry up. So the Purushas have been instructed to "stir up their semen."

(We couldn't make this stuff up if we tried, folks.)

pills.JPG Now, here's the real kicker. These silver-and-gold pills are absolutely illegal in the U.S. -- although used for thousands of years in India. They simply may not be brought into the U.S. without smuggling.

Yet somehow they have become available to Movement insiders -- for a price -- from sources close to Purusha.

Weird enough that the Movement after all these years of sexual repression is selling Spanish Fly, even in India. Weirder still that the squeaky clean Purusha celibate monks seem to be involved.

But possible drug smuggling?

What does any of this have to do with enlightenment?

To find out, I made a few calls.

My first call was to a nationally known non-TM ayur vedic physician -- who wishes to remain anonymous, left completely out of this fracas, and in fact, was frightened silly when he heard that these pills were in the U.S. without FDA approval.

"You see," he explained, "similar pills have been used in India for years without problems. But they must be made just right. You must burn the mercury and the gold and the copper together over and over until they form a kind of ash. Then they have been 'humanized.' They have been potentiated for the human body. They will not harm you."

But he explained, not done under strict supervision of a master, even Indian pills are known to be deadly poison. Such medicines have never been approved for use in this country by the FDA.

"India has an understanding about these things. But the FDA has never bothered to test them. When they do, perhaps they will find they work. Perhaps they will find they are poison. One cannot say," he finished hurriedly.

Hmmmm. Not encouraging.

So I called the source. Maharishi Ayurved in the U.S. (1.800.ALL.VEDA, if you are interested.) I talked with a "Steve" and explained that I had heard of a new product, ENERGOL-MA and wondered if I could order it.

"It doesn't sound familiar. What's in it?"

I read a list of ingredients, finishing up with the mercury and gold. ing.JPG

"What?" exclaimed Steve.

"S'what it says right here."

"Just a minute, let me check into this." Steve disappeared for a few minutes.

And then a few more minutes.

When Steve came back to the phone, he sounded shaken. "What we have here is more of a situation," said Steve. "What you have is illegal. You must not use it."

"But it says right here it's made by Maharishi Ayurveda."

"Yes, but in India," explained Steve helpfully.

"Wait, a second, what's the connection between your company and the one in India?"

"They're the same company," came the quiet, stoic reply. "Where did you get them?"

"Someone gave them to me, saying more were for sale, and that they were coming from Purusha," I said.

"These are illegal. They are not to be sold in the U.S."

"But they're okay for Indians?"

"We have much stricter quality controls here in the U.S. The products are different. These are good for Indian people. They are not good for Western people. You must get rid of them. They are illegal. You should not have them."

I could tell that Steve and the person whispering in the background were quite upset.

"Okay, Steve, I'll think about that. But I think you should really realize that I'm not the problem. If these products are coming down from Purusha you really ought to pass the word up there, don't you think?"

"Oh, don't worry. We'll take care of that." Click!

Below I've included the entire text of the booklet that accompanies the box of pills.

Creation has two sides: intelligence, which is the cause of everything, and the manifestations of intelligence, which are the physical and psychological features of the everyday world. Because Transcendental Meditation directly approaches intelligence, rather than the manifestations of intelligence, it solves problems by introducing harmony and well-being at the most basic level, and not by dealing with problems themselves. That's why it is so effective.

Consider this example: The gardener supplies water to the root of a tree. That water, that nourishment, then reaches all parts of the tree - leaves, branches, flowers, fruit - through the sap. We can think of the sap as analogous to intelligence and the green leaves or yellow flowers as analogous to the manifestations of the intelligence. The leaves and flowers are the intelligence of the sap, after it has been transformed. So intelligence - like the leaves and flowers of a tree - appears as the many different forms of manifest life. Those manifestations include every aspect of existence, from the material and physiological, through the psychological, intellectual, and spiritual. All of those features of life come from transformations of intelligence. In meditation, we directly meet this essential intelligence. Therefore, we have the possibility of nourishing all of its other levels, and thus all levels of manifestation, in a way that is harmoniously related to the whole universe.

How is Transcendental Meditation different from the various other forms of meditation?

Maharishi: The basic difference is that Transcendental Meditation, in addition to its simplicity, concerns itself only with the mind. Other systems often involve some additional aspects with which the mind is associated, such as breathing or physical exercises. They can be a little complicated because they deal with so many things. But with Transcendental Meditation there is no possibility of any interference. So we say this is the all-simple program, enabling the conscious mind to fathom the whole range of its existence.

Transcendental Meditation ranges from active mind - or performing mind - to quiet mind - or resting mind. In this resting mind, one has purity and simplicity, uninvolved with anything other than the mind, uninvolved with any other practice. In Transcendental Meditation, because we deal only with the mind, we nourish all expressions of intelligence.

The mind meditates, gains Transcendental Consciousness and brings about transformation in different fields of manifestation. All fields of life, which are the expression of intelligence, are nourished or transformed and made better through experiencing Transcendental Consciousness.

The mind, of course, is always concerned with other aspects, such as the physiology of the body, the environment, and the whole universe for that matter. But since Transcendental Meditation deals only with the performance of the mind, from its active states to its settled state, it remains unconcerned with those other aspects, though it deals with them all, because intelligence deals with them all. -- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, unknown interview, copyright presumablyheld by Maharishi Vedic University, The Maharishi Foundation, or another group within the TM family.

Cults come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Categories of cults that are recruiting successfully today include:

Eastern meditation: characterized by belief in God-consciousness, becoming one with God. The leader usually distorts and Eastern-based philosophy or religion. Members sometimes learn to disregard worldly possessions and may take on an ascetic lifestyle. Techniques used: meditation, repeated mantras, altered states of consciousness, trance states.

Religious: marked by belief in salvation, afterlife, sometimes combined with an apocalyptic view. The leader reinterprets the Scriptures and often claims to be a prophet if not the messiah. Often the group is strict, sometimes using physical punishments such as paddling and birching, especially on children. Members are encouraged to spend a great deal of time proselytizing. (Note: included here are Bible-based neo-Christian and other religious cults, many considered syncretic since they combine beliefs and practices). Techniques used: speaking in tongues, chanting, praying, isolation, lengthy study sessions, many hours spent evangelizing, "struggle" (or criticism) and confession sessions.

Political, racist, terrorist: fueled by belief in changing society, revolution, overthrowing the "enemy" or getting rid of evil forces. The leader professes to be all-knowing and all-powerful. Often the group is armed and meets in secret with coded language, handshakes, and other ritualized practices. Members consider themselves an elite cadre ready to go to battle. Techniques used: paramilitary training, reporting on one another, guilt, fear, struggle sessions, instilled paranoia, long hours of indoctrination. -- Captive Hearts, Captive Minds, Lalich and Tobias, Hunter House, 1993.
