Yes, it seems to vary according to different spiritual fathers or priests. I can see how these deep meditations might lead to demonic influence but maybe I just not Orthodox yet, but I just can't say the Rosary is bad or dangerous. If someone wants to pray it as an Orthodox they should, as long as they understand I suppose how Orthodox view prayer as opposed to Roman Catholics. And I stand by telling my friend to pray the Rosary with her husband because she is a good person and praying the Rosary with him can only make so virtuous a soul even more divine. Some people are pious by nature, a sort of natural piety since piety has more to do with internal charity as seen outwardly by action. It has nothing to do with how much one prays or goes to church, as Orthodox and Catholics agree. But prayer is important and the Rosary is good. I friend told me he was on a plane and a female solider was beside him praying her Rosary. He talked to a bit about it and she said she never was very religious though Catholic. But when she got into boot camp and things got hard she starting going to Mass and praying the Rosary. So it can do a lot of good, even if it can do bad. And I would say for the benefit of Roman Catholics that any visions a person claims to have of the Virgin, etc. are very much investigated if they become popular and few are "approved" by the local bishop or Rome if it gets so far. Exorcisms and visions are taking seriously. Mental illiness, holiness, and all such things are investigated.
