Yes, over the years, several. In 1964, I met the late Maharhisi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of TM. Remember him?
Absolutely, and did you spend enough time with him in regard to his teaching and philosophy to absorb the nature of Maharishi and his teaching? Meaning did you just meet him or did you spend time with him engaged in conversations regarding what he was about and what he taught and how he taught. Were you a student of TM?

In fact did you spend enough time with all of the several Gurus to absorb the essence of the Guru and the Teaching?

Do you consider yourself knowledgeable regarding the way of the Guru?

I'm not finding in John any reference to a voice in a chorus...
I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey, but then I turned myself around!!
