As to the loss of cohesion mentioned below, Surveying groups of meditators 
downtown, old TM teachers, several pointed out that what they liked about going 
to the Dome was ,when everyone went, it was social.  Going was being part of 
something larger and you saw old friends and old acquaintances from old 
campaigns of the movement.  The table agreed and thought it might be fun to see 
who is still there. Some were saying it was not worth the aggravation of having 
the course office interrogate their private lives now.

 

 The Lack of cohesion.. 
They started losing group cohesion when 1] they started in taking people’s Dome 
badges away back in the 80’s and throughout the 1990’s and 2] they facilitated 
special group program rooms other than in the Domes.  At that point people from 
across the meditating community were no longer attenders going into the Dome 
shoulder to shoulder alongside one another regardless of socio-economic class 
of meditator. The community lost its daily check-in as a larger community was 
dispersed.
 

 Yes, there was specialness granted to sub-groups that sent people out. 
..established program halls
 ​ of which there are 11 (including the Domes)​
. The litany of this kind of bifurcation has bled the place. The anemia needs 
to stop and meditators should to come together.  Numbers in proximity quite 
evidently need to be attended to now as part of a collective re-group in this 
period. This needs conscious leadership. 
 

 I understand why some people don't live in Fairfield and thus can't get to the 
dome to meditate in a group every day. 

 What I don't understand is why the rajas and other residents of Vedic City 
apparently don't meditate in the Patanjali Dome of Pure Knowledge. Where do 
they do program and do they do it alone, or with their family?
  
 Most of the residents of the TM Ideal Village down here meditate and do 
program together in the Maharishi Dome of Pure Knowledge.

 There is lots of ‘process’ in fact and organizing going on right now in the 
transition.  Both Dr. Hagelin and Dr. Nader as Western scientists appreciate 
feedback and resonance of input as data to work policy with. The old 
never-entertain-negativity is out and effective people on merit will be much 
safer and more able to voice their hearts and minds with this particular 
leadership change.  By virtue of a change of personality the institutions will 
host a different tone and culture going forward from this.  -JaiGuruDev

 The criticism is understandable given the context.  In kind It seems 
symptomatic of change and to be expected. Some people are unsettled and upset 
by change. That feeling is going on too inside TM with all that is progressing 
in the works.  The status-quo evidently has changed. The change may become more 
certain once we get beyond this current transition period and beyond the 12th 
of Sept.

 It is what happened.  Was done most discretely at pay grades in this way above 
most. Was very bravely done. Lot of committee work and no e-mails to show and 
was strategically done in a way to save face for everyone. They all do still 
have to work with one another in some way at their level. As it evolved there 
were some working committee reports published that were being shared around in 
the process, if you were here. In the deliberations I had them and showed them 
often to people who were stakeholders in this. 

 

 Doug, 

 I know that this post will not in any way result in you posting anything other 
than what you have posted above and previously, so my three final comments on 
this:
 

 #1: Saying one have evidence does not constitute evidence. [<--I know you 
don't understand this]
 #2: You have never produced evidence in any previous posts re: Bevan Morris 
[See #1]

 #3: The above paragraph does not contain any evidence [<-- See #1]

 

 

 Right now there is a ‘president-elect’ waiting to take charge and the current 
President is to go on to something else in a few more weeks.  Effectively the 
24/7 of the  University will no longer have to report to this current 
President.  There likely will be a different tone in the institution by virtue 
of a change in personality in charge.
    

 Like it or not, the movement is a corporate democracy now as Maharishi himself 
set it into corporations.  It is no longer a theocratic autocracy that can be 
ruled simply by decree.  Is now a lot more process involved with boards and 
trustees.  ..‘involving ‘many heads makes better decisions’ as Maharishi used 
to say. 
 
 There is more transparency inside it now and more process involved in it. 
There are still a lot of good people working in it.  So it is.  
 

 They are working hard at it while waiting for the transition to actually 
happen. It is very analogous to the lame-duck wait after our national election 
happens and a new president-elect transitions into office on inauguration day, 
some 8 or 10 weeks after the election. As much as a lot has to be done right 
now for this new academic year it is in a slow transition now.   

 Given the practical necessities they face and the jyotish also one can imagine 
their difficulties and have some empathy for them all in what they are 
experiencing...  

 The mundane jyotish:

 Aug 24 Saturn and Mars @ 15degrees of Scorpio, Transit characterized by ANGER. 
There is a star in Scorpio that is the war star in combination with Mars etc.. 
makes it all particularly difficult.  

 August 23-26 will be extremely violent with Mars transiting the fixed star 
Antares.

 Aug 30 Mercury retrograde in Virgo  =Havoc in Communication

 Around September 13 (the 12th?) it will be treacherous and very violent again 
due to transiting Saturn’s return to the degree of the fixed star Antares.

 As Jr points out, 
 the good news is that.. Sept 17  Mars Exits Scorpio,  the most difficult 
period passes 
 

Jai Guru Dev

 "Yes" what? 

 You didn't answer my question.
 

 I understand, of course, that group program is said to be more powerful 
(including by King Tony, below--"this is the greatest strength").
 

 What I *don't* understand is why people who can't make it to a group program 
should not be told, as King Tony did, to coordinate their individual program so 
as to fly at the same time as in group program.
 

 Also, I don't think it helps the movement's "transformation" to try to make 
people feel guilty if they can't get to a group program. That sounds to me like 
the Ancien Regime of Bevan Morris et al.

 Yes, and by our experience and by the composite of quite a lot of good science 
we know that numbers of people meditating and proximity does matter in the 
Meissner-like transformational effect of groups meditating.  

 Someone just sent me a chart from another new study on this.  
 This ill-advise ‘non-localized’ comment from leadership just works against 
what is in the works of the movement right now and yet gives people codling 
excuse to sit back and be ill-disciplined when they could be helping by being 
in a group meditation.  

Yes, of necessity people’s circumstance may vary but movement policy has been 
splitting and bifurcating on this, eroding what transformational effect has 
been here.  Hence, the Dome numbers (218 in the men’s Dome this morning) being 
what they are. This is an administrative failure of the program.  People once 
could come to Fairfield, Iowa and be part of something larger.  This thread 
critiquing leadership is very much part of an ongoing larger conversation being 
had right now in the movement.  -JaiGuruYou

people who can't make it to a group program that they should schedule their 
individual program to fly at the same time as the group.
 

 Plus which, calling people who aren't able to join a group "slackers" is sure 
as heck not going to help them feel a part of the movement.
 

 We don't need to get crazed over this Jyotish prediction. That just adds to 
the general incoherence.

 35 years has been spent separating people from the ™ movement.  It is silly 
that a few in this organization are reaching out asking for the collective help 
and sacrifice with what circumstance we have at hand and the leadership at his 
level is so tepid. An organizational need here right now is for some direct 
leadership with some clarity and spine that lays out the higher mission of who 
we are as transcendentalists and where we are going with this.  Not some 
appeasements and buried comments at the bottom of some talk.    

 Right now we need some coordanated leadership from the top on this that does 
not get in the way of good work being done on behalf of the organization and 
movement.

 Wow, that is certainly deflating.
 "Maharaja-ji said" ..His comments highlighted below in your post directly defy 
what we know by experience as meditators and what the science does reveal.  

 Sending Mixed messaging from the top is a simple way to justify a culture of 
long failure (negligence) in corporate reign of administration to have people 
in meditation.  This is really bad.   A major tenant of Maharishi’s all along 
was that numbers and proximity of meditators in meditation were significators.  

 The message there is like a pulling of a rug out from under the footing of his 
generals and soldiers out in the field.  Comes down like the Trump-esk gaff.  
Mischief or Commander-in-chief?   

 One could feel quite badly for all the TM movement’s people out working now to 
organize the group practices of collective meditation.  And, what does he and 
those rich people who have access around him at that level know about group 
meditation? That high polloi don’t even come to the Dome to meditate.
