THE DREADED GOM-BOO
Part I: Understanding
Tell Me True – Have You Got the Gom-Boo?
August 30, 1982
MASTER DA: If you want to “get religious” in our time,
you must first decide that you have the Dreaded Gom-Boo.
Then you go to a Doctor Pope, Doctor Church, Doctor Jesus,
Doctor Mahatma, Doctor Mahatmaboo, Doctor Gombooananda,
Doctor Gomananda-Booharaj. As soon as you get the feeling
that you have the disease, you start looking for religious
answers. Ask most of the people around here how they got
involved with this Way of life, and they will describe some
symptom or other of the Dreaded Gom-Boo. The Dreaded Gom-Boo
led you all here because you were looking to be cured of the
heebie-jeebies, the hopeless Three-Day Thumb-and-Finger
Problem, the terrible jiggly meatedness! (Laughter.)
Are you telling me that you think God and Truth are
supposed to be interested in curing you of the Dreaded
Gom-Boo? Is that it? It is about time you realized that
there is no cure for the Dreaded Gom-Boo! The Gom is
terrible! The Boo is terminal! And this is why everyone
dreads it, the terrible, terminal incurableness. That is
what youve got, right? I thought so! I could see the
symptoms as soon as you came in here. Have you got the Boo?
The Dreaded? The terrible Gom? Have you? Thats what I
thought! Tell me true-have you got the Gom-Boo?
