  It may be noted that the reason that I posted Mary's statement is 
because of I myself was told by a very very reliable source several years 
ago about a comment K made to this individual about his work and higher 
powers. While he has not made any comment in public, he did mention it in 
private and we may want to just make a note of it.

  Finally, the bottom line is, as far as myself is concerned, it is more 
important how his lectures and books have affected and helped me and many 
others. After all in the final analysis, we have to deal with our own 
problems and all of us have our share every day.

  Thanks for sharing you comment.
