As I keep stressing, TM is not a cure-all for anything""--but you will ""achieve more with less effort,"" have better sex, become pregnant when once you were barren, cure acne and backaches, kick your addiction to dope, food, booze and cigarettes (the latter two, along with middle age, seem to have been the author's old hangups), increase creativity, become a model of tranquility and, in short, be happy. For only $175 (as of this writing), you get a mantra and a four-session course where you will learn about the TM guru via videotape. According to Maharishi: ""Awareness is wholeness."" Also: ""Ignorance limits."" Simple on the surface of things?. Think about the profound mantra cost/profit margin. . . .
