A friend who was also a TM teacher had him as a patient and Swami offered to teach him. So I met him through my friend. I didn't just jump in but met with him a number of times before learning from him about 6 months later. There even some folks who had been on Purusha who learned from him.

Tell you I guess since I'm talked about him over the years and posted his videos and folks commented on him (and some visited him). His site has expired as his son failed to renew the domain name but here is his YouTube channel. He passed away of heart failure two years ago this month.

He's not the only guru by a long shot who thought the mantras came about by trial and error instead of being "cognized". So they were "recognized" instead.

The biggest problem with TM is though it tried to be secular it is not secular enough. Maharishi goofed by saying that the mantras are meaningless sounds. They are "attributed" to the Hindu pantheon but are really just sounds. The pantheon itself is made up as analogies to forces in nature. It just so happens that those sounds work well and may be better than others. Even my tantra guru thought they were arrived at by trial and error. And as I have mentioned many a time beej mantras can be used by anyone and it doesn't take a puja to activate them. It's long mantras like the Advanced Technique that required special handling.

Address what I said to him. How is that stupid? I showed quite clearly that he is a liar. The NIH hands out money to just about anyone who can write a grant proposal. You might even be able to get a few million to study why TM'er are more predisposed to become slavish minded dumbasses later in life. But in the final analysis society will be better off studying the way South Africans wash their balls than bullshit studies on TM's weak and non-existent "benefits" - most of TM's modern benefits are lining the TMO's pockets.

Michael,

Did you become this stupid because you stopped your practice of TM and the TMSP?

You brain is addled by TM, but not in the way you think.

Try something. I don't know what. But try to develop an interest other than TM.

You are sinking into utter idiocy.

P.S. Try looking back at some of your more early posts. Occasionally you had something interesting to say.

A funny thing happened on the way to forum. But in your case, it's just no so funny!

One more note, Mr. Nameless Director of Operations, your assertion on funding by the NIH - "to be funded by the NIH, rigorous assessment is performed by highly experienced scientists. If the research was bogus or deeply flawed, the research would not be funded or published."

This is, quite honestly complete bullshit. All one has to do to get funding by the NIH is to know how to write a grant proposal. That's it.

Here are just a few things the NIH has funded over the years, some of them nearly as stupid as funding research on TM.

The National Institutes of Health paid researchers $400,000 to find out why gay men in Argentina engage in risky sexual behavior when they are drunk.

Researchers at Indiana University's Kinsey Institute, funded by NIH, investigated why “young heterosexual adult men have problems using condoms.” Price tag? $423,500, according to NIH records.

The NIH also once spent $442,000 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam.

The NIH once spent $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa.

I realize that your much vaunted master Mahesh Prasad lied like a dog all the time, so it could be you are lying "as is our tradition" but for your own sake, at least make the prevarications somewhat credible.

I am the Director of Operations for the school meditation project in San Francisco that uses TM, where the students were found to be the happiest in the city. I would like to try and correct some misunderstandings that may have occurred as a result of certain comments made here recently.

1. There is a post that suggest we 'stole' couches from a one of the high schools we worked in.

This is incorrect. We purchase used couches from outside sources, specifically for the Quiet Time program. We own them. 2. That the windows and doors in the rooms we used at a high school were papered over so that no one could see in, and that the school had to remove the papering after we left. A single door to a small room was partially papered only during training sessions to reduce the distraction from other students walking by during passing period. This paper was taken down each day, and was not remaining after the meditation training staff left the school. 3. That we had been kicked out of at least 2 schools in SF since Jan of this year. One school decided to discontinue the Quiet Time program at the end of the spring semester due primarily to a vote from faculty regarding time constraints. There are many schools throughout CA and nationally requesting the program, so we only work with those that are able to fit it into their schedule. After providing this to 7,000 students, teachers, parents and administrators for the last 7 years, we have had over a 90% program satisfaction rating. An extremely small minority of parents, teachers and administrators have had issues with the program, usually because of biases or misunderstandings. 4. That most of the research referenced by the TM organization is "either bogus or deeply flawed" There are over 100 studies on TM published in reputable, peer reviewed scientific journals indicating various positive mental and physical health effects. Research has been done at Stanford, Harvard, University of California and other reputable institutions. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funded over 24M worth of research into TM and heart health. In order to be published in peer reviewed journals or to be funded by the NIH, rigorous assessment is performed by highly experienced scientists. If the research was bogus or deeply flawed, the research would not be funded or published.
