I would find the issue of mantra yoga to be ridiculous were it not for a remarkable experience with it: I signed up for the package in 1964, paid for it, received the mantra (not at the ashram, which I have never visited, nor do I know anything much about Maharishis, whose books I haven’t read), went home and experienced enlightenment on the first use on the first day of receiving the mantra. The experience last several days, and then faded away. The same experience recurred in a study of a book on Kabala, and then again reading Bennett’s The Dramatic Universe. So there was not intrinsic connection to mantra yoga.
