Deep-Act Chopra

Ah, yes, that great Maharishi of Indian wisdom and sensitivity. I caught an interview of him selling his newest book: Buddha: a story of enlightenment. He “mentioned” that he was curious about those in the West who claimed to be students of the great Gautama who “didn’t even know that he was Indian.” Well . . . Deep-Act, imagine my surprise that you “didn’t even know” that he wasn’t Indian! He was a Nepalese prince! To be sure, he taught in India, but he wasn’t Indian. So there! Maybe you should inform yourself before you criticize the ignoramuses in the West.
