 Teaching TM independently, like the UK way:
 In the UK, as Sal says:
 The TM official are always taking legal action against them but there isn't 
much they can do as all the teachers were trained by Marshy.


 In the USA:
 “But Knoles declined and largely defended his biography. His attorney said he 
did learn under the Maharishi, was personally awarded an honorary doctorate by 
him, and had become "an acclaimed teacher of yoga" by age 20.
 Oddly enough, the foundation hasn't sued Knoles, for strategic reasons Zaiger 
said were confidential. Instead, it filed a lawsuit in 2011 against The 
Meditation House, an Iowa corporation owned by life coach Jules Green, who 
promotes Vedic Meditation on her website.
 The lawsuit seeks an order preventing Green from mentioning transcendental 
meditation studies in her advertising,”

 Yea But, the really interesting thing here is the legal path the old UK TM 
teachers carve out to continue to teach in the face of the strong-hand attempt 
of TM trademark assertion.. as Sal notes: but there isn't much they (Vlodrop) 
can do as all the teachers were trained by Marshy (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi).  
That is interesting.  

 40,000 TM teachers out there in the world trained by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and 
a few hundreds of TM teacher re-certs. The new TM legal department sharp-shoots 
old individuals continuing to teach TM as they were taught to teach as an 
infringement but this particular group of UK scorpion TM teachers stuck 
together and withstands the new TM legal department together. The Maharishi 
Foundation (Vlodrop and Vedic City) now keep a trademark infringement law firm 
on retainer now in the USA as they hunt down old TM teachers teaching outside 
the TM teacher re-certification project, a project that came post Maharishi or 
at the end to have old teachers come in and sign papers again restricting their 
teaching. Apparently the group of UK TM teachers exist extra-territorial to 
new-TM because they stuck together. Damned scorpions.

 You've got that knee jerk, TM bash move down pat.

 Sal writing:

 It's a good question, there are a few teaching in various places, The 
Meditation Trust is probably the best known as they were the guys who quit when 
Marshy put the price up so high it put them out of business. They have a few 
centres and hold courses in a country house where they teach the TMSP too. 

 The TM official are always taking legal action against them but there isn't 
much they can do as all the teachers were trained by Marshy. 

 I know people who go on their courses, they always tell me that I musn't 
mention it to people in the movement, which says it all about the TMO really. 
The same guy was telling me that someone asked him if it was true that people 
get brainwashed in the TMO, he said of course not. 

 Anyway, they seem to be doing well and actually making money out of it which 
is the TM teachers dream, but then they don't have to give half to the TMO. Bad 
feelings about that too I shouldn't wonder.

   Michael: note the highlighted part of my post below. A schism requires that 
the split off group has a coherent organization. I don't know if the initiators 
in England have this.

   Species, Corporations, Religions, Cults, as is the nature of change, always, 
if they persist, break apart or become extinct. A schism is always eventually 
in the cards for the TM movement. It is said shortly after his death, the 
followers of Buddha broke into some two dozen different sects. You can see how 
Christianity split over time. There seem to be fewer splits among Muslims, 
perhaps a reflection of the dark ferocity of their memes. The Mormons, barely a 
religion after 150 years, have split six times. And look at all the different 
Hindu flavours. It is almost a no-brainer prediction that the TM movement will 
at some point split. *Already there are many teachers in various countries 
teaching outside the movement purview.* 

 I would say that movements in which the participants are unable to think for 
themselves are likely to cohere together longer than those in which mental 
freedom and expression are given freer reign. Onward Lemmings!

 Rick does not have to do anything to weaken the movement, it will break 
naturally of its own accord, it is already frayed around the edges. While you 
might try to do something to arrest progress, eventually you will fail. That is 
the nature of evolution.

 An organizer asked me to post this. 


 Be curious. Be practical. Be yourself.


 One's perspective on this presentation of Explanations should be focused on 
"assessing its content" (i.e., whoever the source may be is far less relevant). 

 Ask yourself on November 30th:


 1) Is the content valuable and helpful to me now in my life? 

 2) Does it have a practical benefit? If yes, then take that part and use it. 
If not, then don't. 

 That should always be the test. On the individual level.
