John Lennon's letter to Christine Marsh
on the subject of Maharishi & Transcendental Meditation
way to answer your questions is to meditate yourself and
experience it – you can only find out so much by reading. A
guru is a teacher – thats what the word means –
he’s certainly a teacher. His idea of helping the world is to
– its no good feeding people who are just going to be hungry
again in a few months – the point is change the situation
which causes starvation disease etc – the cause is people

I believe Maharishi
– why shouldn’t he? The only way to get a message
over to everyone is to publicise it – that is the 20th

You ask me to try God – thats
what meditation is about – experiencing God. ‘The
Kingdom of Heaven is within’ said Jesus – and he
meant within which is where the mantra takes your mind. Sure the system
is scorned in India and elsewhere so is God so is everything scorned by
someone or other – its doesn’t mean its bad does it?

– it won’t harm you – you do not have
to be rich to do it – you do not
to go to India to do it – you just DO IT.
P.S. excuse paper I don’t seem to have anything else.
