Bob Roth is a little shaky on the facts, unfortunately:

"Fact: The course fee to learn Transcendental Meditation is about 
the same as the cost of a 3-unit course at most universities. 
However, the TM course is not just one semester but includes 
personal instruction from a qualified TM instructor as well as a 
lifetime of follow-up meditation instruction at thousands of 
meditation centers around the United States and the world. The Lynch 
Foundation is providing full scholarships to students at schools, 
colleges and universities throughout the country."

All U.S.-resident students who need financial aid to attend school 
(and most schools do not charge $800+ per credit for classes) get it 
from huge state and federal loan and grant programs -- matching 
these comprehensive programs would require billions from the Lynch 
Foundation, and currently they have $410K in the bank, enough to 
fund 164 students, who are almost all inner-city kids at charter 


Fact: Transcendental Meditation is not a religion. It is taught and 
practiced by people (and clergy) of all religions — and to people 
with no religious beliefs. Well before scientists began to explore 
the effects of TM, a judge in New Jersey in 1979 concluded there 
were religious elements to the teaching of TM. However, as we all 
know, there is a long tradition in the American judicial system (see 
civil rights in the south), where decisions are overturned with new 
evidence. Transcendental Meditation is offered to students of all 
religions in scores of educational institutions throughout the 
United States."


Keith Wallace published his doctoral dissertation on TM's 
physiological changes in 1970, so it's hard to see how Roth could 
possibly justify a statement like "Well before scientists began to 
explore the effects of TM."
