Elucidation of the TM - Movement

 
 

The TM-Meditation and TM-Sidhi Techniques - 

As reported in the TM-EX Newsletter, and from Minet.

The TM technique is simple mental repetition of a "mantra" or word. The TM movement claims that only specific "words" can be used. They claim that the selection of words is based upon a secret formula. Court documents have shed some light on this "secret" process. It is nothing other than a set of words given out by age, and/or age and sex, depending on the teacher training course the TM teacher attended.( Please see bottom of this document !!!)

The TM-Sidhi program is nothing other than a set of sutras (words or phrases), mentally repeated every fifteen seconds after doing a twenty minute session of TM. Each sutra is repeated twice, with a 15 second pause in between each repetition.

Yogic Flying

The "levitation" or better foam rubber-"flying" (hopping) technique,  propagated as "Yogic Flying,"

is used in the same way as all other sutras:

"Relationship of body and akasha - lightness of cotton fiber."

This phrase is mentally repeated every fifteen seconds after doing a twenty minute session of TM. Each sutra is mentally repeated twice (if time allows 4 times), with a 15 second pause in between each repetition.

After doing the flying sutra for 5-30 minutes, the instruction is to rest for 10-30 minutes and then read the Hindu Scriptures for 5 minutes.

An example of the readings (from the Ninth Mandala of Rig Veda):

Flow Soma, in a most sweet and exhilarating stream, effused for Indra to drink. The all-beholding destroyer of Rakshasas has stepped upon his gold-smitten birthplace, united with the wooden cask. Be the lavish giver of wealth, most bounteous, the destroyer of enemies; bestow on us the riches of the affluent. Come with food to the sacrifice of the mighty gods, and bring us strength and sustenance. To thee we come, O dropping (Soma); for thee only is this our worship day by day, our prayers are to thee, none other.

Annotation : I think that mantras with ending "nga" as " Inga , Enga , Ainga " should be avoided if possible.
In the MAHABHARATA a "Nâga" means "snake" or vital or negative evil force .

--> see also in the kabbalist " Sepher Jezirah " : Ong and Nga (The good and the evil)

* Other experiences and mantras on TM-Free !!!


Hint : My proposal instead is the 'Om Namaha Shivaya' from the Sivapurana - for all people.
