Most every Indian spiritual group I've investigated uses some of the bija mantras - not necessarily in an eye-closed effortless meditation practice, but they seem to be very commonly known. As discussed here recently, early TMers report they weren't given bij mantras, but "Ram". Speaking of Nandkisore, I'd always heard the story about how surprised he was when MMY taught him TM - there was nothing like it taught within their ashram.
