D ear S i r , - On Saturday 6 th J a n uary, I bought a fountain pen a t B a r k e r s on K e n s i n g t o n High Street. It turned out to be f a u l t y , but when I took it back, B a r k e r s refused to replace i t , in d i r e c t contravention of the S u p p l y of Goods (Implied Terms) A c t 1973. T h e a s s i s t a n t manageress of the s t a t i o n a r y department told me company p o l i c y w o u l d not l e t her offer me a replacement, although she w o u l d s e n d i t b a c k to the manufacturers under guarantee, i f I wanted to w a i t f i v e w e e k s . I c a n o n l y hope that other s t u dents at I . C ' do not suffer the same treatment, i f they s t i l l choose to go there. Yours faithfully, J . Robinson

o n c e i n the morning

and o n c e a g a i n in the e v e n i n g .

B o t h t i m e s one m e d i t a t e s for 1 5 - 2 0 m i n u t e s s i t t i n g in a comfortable c h a i r with the e y e s c l o s e d .

A s a r e s u l t of t h i s deep r e s t , the mind becomes c l e a r e r , more a l e r t ; i t s a b i l i t y to s o l v e p r o b l e m s , remember i n f o r m a t i o n , and make i n t e l l i g e n t d e c i s i o n s i m p r o v e s . A l s o the body gets rid of deep s t r e s s e s and fatigue and g a i n s greater energy and e f f i c i e n c y , mind-body c o - o r d i n a t i o n improves and we enjoy better h e a l t h . Is it worth s a c r i f i c i n g 40 m i n u t e s a day to r e l a x ? I s n ' t l i f e h e c t i c enough without h a v i n g to make up those 40 m i n u t e s by being b u s i e r than e v e r ? T h e point i s that though m e d i t a t i o n s are p l e a s a n t p e r i o d s of profound r e l a x a t i o n , it i s for the benefits of T M that p e o p l e m e d i t a t e . A f t e r meditating one f e e l s refreshed - e s p e c i a l l y n o t i c e a b l e after a tough d a y . F o r e x a m p l e : one may get home after a busy day (perhaps f e e l i n g a l i t t l e t i r e d ) , i n v e s t 20 m i n u t e s in m e d i t a t i n g then reap the benefits by b e i n g a b l e to spend the rest of the e v e n i n g to the maximum a d v a n t a g e and enjoyment; whether it be a trip to the c i n e m a , an e v e n i n g out w i t h f r i e n d s , t h i s w e e k s problem s h e e t / l a b report, or w h a t e v e r . So, far from l o s i n g out on 40 m i n u t e s a d a y , one i s a b l e to a c c o m p l i s h more, more e f f i c i e n t l y , d u r i n g our a c t i v i t i e s . T h u s it i s that T M is e x c e p t i o n a l l y u s e f u l to the busy life at I . C . and the p r a c t i c e of it in no way i n v o l v e s w a s t i n g t i m e , time w h i c h we c a n n o t afford to i l l - s p e n d .
