And conversely, a TM teacher may not have any understanding of what happens 
with other forms of meditation. Now the ones I have been familiar with all had 
basically the same kind of minimal effortless kind of instruction as TM; none 
were overtly of the concentration type. But awareness does shift in a different 
way with these other meditations.

The misunderstanding goes both ways.
