Default Transcendental Meditation - another face of the Il

Transcendental Meditation - another face of the Illuminati?


We know that many, if not most, scientists, educationists, politicians and their ilk are part of the plot that David, Jones and many others warn us about. Many of these organizations while less known to the general public are well known to us and there role within the NWO. Organizations like the Bilderbugers, Council On Foreign Relations etc. However, how many of you are aware of an organization so powerful, so all reaching that you may never have even considered it?

TM. The Background

Transcendental Meditation, is a form of mantra meditation introduced in India in 1955 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The Maharishi an interesting charter in himself. Not only is he a self proclaimed Guru and Maharishi but his past before TM is cloked in inconsistencies and a lack of documented evidence. Firstly, he claims to have been a physicist yet no records of his education has been found. Secondly he claims to be the successor to a Guru (Swami Brahmananda Saraswati) and to have been his disciple from 1941 until Brahmananda Saraswati's death in 1953) . However, it has now been established he was actually Guru Dev's secretory and due to his position within the Hindhu cast system he could not become a his successors. Indeed, Swami Brahmananda Saraswatireal successes in India says that he is appalled by TMs activities especially as it charges mony (1200 us dollars) for what should be freely available religious information.


So far so good. We seem to have yet another guru out to make money from the easily impressed. And if this was the extent of the matter then that would be that. But let us look at other factors.

Children.

A number of court cases in the USA stopped the teaching of TM to school children in the 70's and early 80s stating that it was a religion and thus un constitutional (Malnak v Yogi (1977 and 1979) and Hendel v World Plan Executive Council ). So, you might think this would be the end of it? But know, thanks especially from the Mufti Million dollar David Lynch Foundation TM, despite these court rulings has begun to be taught in schools either with government funding !! Or funding from the David Lynch Foundation or sometimes businesses such as General Motors, Daimler Chrysler, the shady Liebler Foundation . These include schools include:


* Fletcher Johnson Educational Center (1994) in Washington, D.C
* The Ideal Academy Public Charter School (1996) with the approval of the Washington, D.C. Board of
* The Nataki Talibah Schoolhouse in Detroit (1996). The program was featured on the Today Show in 2003
] Over the years, the program at Nitaki Talibah has been funded by various foundations including General Motors, Daimler Chrysler, the Liebler Foundation and more recently, the David Lynch Foundation.

Did I mention that the TM movement has actually stopped people criticizing its use in schools? See http://transcendental-meditation-hon...org-legal.html

Why has the US government ignored court case that made it illegal to teach TM in schools? Indeed, why has the government FUNDED this teaching? More of this later but first:

But so what you might ask, have not, as TM claims 1000s of studies shown that TM is good for you and good for children? Indeed they have but let us now look at these scientific studies

Science.

A little known fact about TM research is much if not all of it is conducted either at the or by members of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) an "accredited" university in the USA. But who owns MUM? Well surprise surprise if it is not TM itself! There have been few independent reviews of TM reasrch but of those that do exist the findings have been that the studies are of poor quality, of little use, prove nothing and are self funded. (It should be said that all members of MUM are advanced practitioners of TM and work for very little money). It should be said that so far the US government has granted the TM movement over 20 million dollars for "scientific research)

OK, again this is suspicious but so what? Its not that TM can do any harm is it?

Harm

Robert Kropinski

Age: 39
Washington, DC


Defrauded, eventually awarded $137,890 by court
January 14, 1987
He practiced transcendental meditation for 11 years, and later claimed in a lawsuit that it induced psychological issues that caused him harm. Read more

Doug Henning (magician)

Age: 39
Los Angeles, California


Abandoned successful career
1986
He was a hugely successful magician. He abandoned his career to devote all his time to studying Transcendental Meditation, which he thought would allow him to levitate. When he died of liver cancer, TM people claimed he was cancer free.

http://tmfree.blogspot.com/2007/02/p...edophilia.html


David teaches that the beginnings behind the illuminant use the energy released from our suffering to power themselves. And, as anyone who has studied the esoteric or occult sciences knows, this is one way inter-dimensional beings may indeed seek power, but is this the only way?

During the so called Kropinski trial where TM was sued by a former TM teacher for 1.3 million pounds worth of damages a video was shown where TMs founder explained the secret of TM and how it worked. To simplify, he said that when the TM mediator was reciting their mantra they were creating MANA in their guts. This magical mana was useless to the meditator but could be used by inter-dimensional beings who could suck it from their gut and in return give "favors to the mediator.!!!


Overview.

TM is an organization worth over 4 billion dollars. It has a political party, it is sneaking its way into schools and companies and it makes food for inter-dimensional beings! So powerful is it the FBI have released a pamphlet promoting it! http://tmfree.blogspot.com/2010/03/f...cendental.html.

And its members and promoters? Well they include such Illuminati insiders as Al Gore, Bill Ford, Hillary Clinton, Eileen Harrington,New Scientist, http://www.tmscotland.org/media.html

And its true agenda? According to the Raja of Germany, it intends to finish what Hitler started:

Below is the real bulletin sent out by the FBI promoting TM!!! This is real and here is the link directly to the bulletin on the FBIs website: http://www.fbi.gov/publications/leb/...2009/brain.htm


Feature

Brain Functioning as the Ground for Spiritual Experiences and Ethical Behavior
By Fred Travis, Ph.D.
Model of a human head gazing into space

While it seems uncommon to have the words brain and spiritual experiences in the same phrase, placing the terms spirituality and law enforcement together may appear even more so. The author contends, however, that brain functioning is fundamental to both spiritual experiences and the complex decisions that law enforcement officers must make every day. In addition, he explores how spiritual experiences can reverse the negative impact of noxious ones on brain functioning and enhance individual well-being.

The brain transforms sensations of outer objects into perceptions and inner intentions into actions. We cannot see the mind think, but we can see the brain fire. Thus, brain patterns can serve as proxy variables for conscious functioning and can provide objective measures of growing subjectivity—even of spiritual experiences and ethical behavior.

Different tasks activate specific brain regions. If we imagine a semitruck in our mind’s eye and then a postage stamp, we would see activation in the calcarine fissure, a deep fold in the visual system at the back of the brain. Larger items produce activation deeper in the fissure, whereas smaller ones create it closer to the surface.1 Other brain areas are activated during esthetic judgments. When we look at sculptures, we usually pick the one that corresponds to the golden mean as more pleasing. Associated with that judgment is greater activation in the left back (parietal) brain area.2 In contrast, making an ethical judgment (e.g., Is it right to steal a loaf of bread to feed someone who is starving?) causes areas in the front of the brain to become active.3 The frontal area is the boss, or CEO, of the brain. Information from all brain areas converges on the front of the brain. Emotions, memories, unconscious processes, concrete perceptual experiences, intentions, and plans come together in frontal areas where the ongoing experience then is put into the larger context of past and future, right and wrong.
Dr. Travis

“Spiritual experiences occur at the
silent recesses of
the mind and,
hence, compare
with the depths
of the ocean.”
Dr. Travis is the director of the Center for Brain Consciousness and Cognition at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.

Frontal executive areas are responsible for planning, decision making, and judgment. At around age 12, connections of other parts of the brain with frontal areas begin to gain a fatty layer of myelin. This process continues through age 25. When output fibers are myelinated, information travels along them 20 times faster.4 The world of teenagers can offer an apt illustration. The brain areas for seeing the world (back sensory areas) and responding to it (motor areas) are fully myelinated. Connections with the frontal brain areas are not yet developed. Consequently, the output of sensory and motor processing is done first, and the teenagers act before the input from the frontal areas can be added to their decisions. Thus, their world remains rooted in concrete experiences and is not placed in relation to consequences (past and future) or overall plans and values. Teenagers are like a car that has the accelerator intact but without the brakes installed.

EXPERIENCE CHANGES THE BRAIN

Experiences constantly tune the natural maturation of frontal areas. An experience flowing through the brain leaves its trace in the structure and function of the brain. When two cells fire together, they are wired together.5 For instance, violin players have larger cortical representations in the primary somatosensory cortex corresponding to the fingers of the hand that forms the chords than the one that holds the bow.6 London taxicab drivers with more years of navigation experience have higher hippocampal gray matter volume, an area associated with spatial memory, than novices.7 The phantom-limb experience in amputees results from cortical reorganization following the loss of an arm or leg.8

What about law enforcement officers? How do their experiences affect the brain? At the start of their careers, they may have joined the police force to protect their community. They met similar farsighted individuals who functioned at high levels of thinking and displayed superior moral reasoning. Now, after weathering about 10 years of service, what might have happened? One veteran officer commented, “Peace officers are exposed to the worst that life has to offer. [T]hey see the denizens of society at their very worst—when they have just been victimized or when they have just victimized someone else. Peace officers see the perpetrators of evil and the results of their evil deeds. The constant contact with evil is corrosive, and those effects are cumulative.”9

Experiences change the brain. This is inevitable. The violence law enforcement officers see becomes part of the functioning of their brains and bodies. Neural imaging assessed activation of the areas of the brain that stop wrong behavior, called orbitofrontal cortex, after individuals watched violent movies. Activation in the orbitofrontal cortex decreased as participants watched more and more violent movies.10 Bandura’s social learning research found that children who play violent video games act more hostile in play and allow more aggressive behavior toward friends.11

Stress affects brain connections. Under stress, the brain downshifts to a more primitive response style, fight or flight, causing frontal executive brain areas to go off-line. Under stress, humans see the world and respond to it. Chronic stress—a small elevation of stress over a long time—and acute stressors, such as the death of a spouse, produce lasting change on brain functioning. High stress causes brain regions involved in memory and emotions, such as the hippocampus,12 amygdala, and prefrontal cortex, to undergo structural remodeling, thereby impairing memory and increasing anxiety13 and aggression.14 This can lead to officers becoming distant from spouses, children, other family members, and friends because they are too drained to give to anyone else.15 Neural imaging of individuals who have been under extensive stress or abused alcohol or other drugs has revealed functional lesions in their frontal executive areas.16 Although intact, the brain matter is not involved in planning and decision making.

Stressful experiences reduce connections with frontal executive areas of the brain and amplify stimulus-response circuits. To balance these negative, stressful experiences, people need fundamentally different ones.

WHOLENESS BALANCES EXPERIENCES

The author defines spiritual experiences as those of wholeness—those of our universal nature, or that part of us not tied to time, space, or our individual body or personality. Moreover, they are not confined to religious practices. To help explain this concept, the author models the mind as an ocean with constantly changing waves at the surface and silence at the depths. Thoughts and sentiments, picked up at the periphery of the mind, are analogous to the changing waves and represent the level of ordinary experiences. Intuition or vague feelings are received at more subtle levels of the mind and correspond to the ocean’s middle regions. Spiritual experiences occur at the silent recesses of the mind and, hence, compare with the depths of the ocean. This silent interiority of the mind has been called pure consciousness.17 The adjective pure emphasizes it as wholly, or purely, an experience of wakefulness, self-awareness, or consciousness. Self-awareness continues, even though bodily sensations, sensory perceptions, thoughts, and feelings are absent.

Spiritual experiences activate widespread brain areas and are reflected in higher brainwave coherence,18 a mathematical calculation of the degree of similarity of electrical activity between two areas on the scalp. Brain areas showing similar patterns of electrical activity are considered structurally or functionally related.19

Peak experiences investigated by Maslow fit into this category of spiritual experiences that happen spontaneously in many individuals and transform their worldview.20 People become more self-reliant, self-sufficient, independent, and take responsibility for their lives and performance, rather than relying on others. Such experiences occur across cultures. But, because they transpire spontaneously, measuring the associated brain and bodily functioning of these experiences can prove difficult. The author’s facility, however, has measured spiritual experiences during Transcendental Meditation (TM) practice. In terms of the analogy of the mind as an ocean, TM practice takes attention from the active surface-thinking level of the mind to its silent depths, pure consciousness devoid of mental content.21 An analysis of pure consciousness experiences revealed three themes that characterized that state: the absence of time, space, and body sense with an expanded sense of self-awareness.22 This intrinsic state emerges in awareness when thought activity settles down. Brain patterns during pure consciousness could suggest how spiritual experiences may change them and, in turn, help reverse the toxic effects of stress and negativity.

TM CHANGES BRAIN PATTERNS

Along with others, the author has conducted research on brain patterns and pure consciousness experiences during TM practice.23 From their empirically identified measures, they generated a Brain Integration Scale (BIS).24 The scores of the participants in the research positively cor- related with emotional stability, moral reasoning, and inner directedness and negatively correlated with anxiety.25

Interestingly, individuals with more years of meditation practice had higher BIS scores, a finding that led to two questions. First, do spiritual experiences during TM practice increase BIS scores, or are people with higher BIS scores more likely to learn and continue TM practice? Second, is the BIS just a “meditation” measure, or are the scores related to outer success? Research suggested that TM practice increased BIS scores in college students. Also, two studies reported that top-level athletes and managers had higher BIS scores.

College Students

Fourteen students were assessed four times over their first year of TM practice: first at baseline and then after two, six, and 12 months of TM practice.26 Findings suggested that the state gained during TM practice can be achieved successfully after only a few months and that meditation practice has useful benefits for daily life. These data emphasize the point that spiritual experiences have real, practical effects on the functioning of an individual’s mind and body.

Another group of 38 college students participated in a randomized controlled trial investigating effects of TM practice on BIS scores, stimulus response to loud tones, and sleepiness. After pretest, students were randomly assigned to learn TM immediately or following the posttest. At posttest, the TM group had significantly higher BIS scores, less incidence of sleepiness during the day, and faster habituation rates (i.e., they were less jumpy and reactive).27

College is a time of great challenge. The academic, financial, and social demands can prove highly stressful.28 TM practice buffered effects of high stress: BIS scores increased, sleepiness decreased, and sympathetic reactivity was lower.

World-Class Athletes

Done in collaboration with the National Olympic Training Center in Norway and the Norwegian University for Sports Sciences, the first study involved 33 professional athletes who met the criteria of placing among the 10 best performers in major competitions (e.g., Olympic Games, World Championships, or World Cup) for at least three seasons, being active on the top level within the past five years, and reaching the age of at least 25. A control group of 33 other athletes who had been active in training and competition at the senior level for at least three seasons but did not consistently place among the top 50 percent in the Norwegian Championships also participated in this study. These subjects were matched with the world-class group by age, gender, and type of sport.

The two groups of athletes differed significantly in level of competitive performance and also in physiological and psychological measures. The world-class performers had higher BIS scores, faster habituation rates to a loud tone, and elevated results on measures of self-development and moral reasoning.29

Top-Level Managers

This second study involved 20 top-level Norwegian managers from the private and public sectors who demonstrated excellence in management performance as evidenced by expanding their business many times or turning around failing businesses and had a reputation for being socially responsible, having sound ethics, and displaying a more human orientation in business. A comparison group consisted of 20 people employed at lower and middle levels in organizations. These individuals were matched with the top-level group by gender and type of organization (competitive/noncompetitive).

As with world-class athletes, top-performing managers exhibited higher BIS scores and increased levels of moral reasoning. These results indicated more integrated functioning of the brain’s frontal executive centers, the CEO of the brain.30 Frontal integration provides a coherent framework to unite localized processes into a larger picture. It allows the person to rise above the demands of the moment and include more expanded concepts in making decisions—for instance, the impact of actions on society, rather than only on the individual’s needs.

Law Enforcement Officers

The author’s research has indicated that TM practice leads to increased frontal brain integration, faster habituation to stressful stimuli, and higher moral reasoning. Spiritual experiences enliven frontal coherence, which builds global circuits to place individual experiences in a larger framework. In this vein, spiritual experiences could provide the inner armor to protect law enforcement officers from the noxious effects of negative experiences and stress.

Research specific to the law enforcement profession has revealed the importance of spirituality to its members.31 Additional studies should be undertaken to help officers remain effective in their work and thrive as human beings throughout their careers.

CONCLUSION

The brain is the interface between human beings and their world. Brain functioning changes sensations into perceptions and thoughts into actions. Reverberations in brain circuits lead to conscious experience; these reverberations also structurally alter the brain. Stressful experiences change brain regions involved in memory and emotions, impairing memory and increasing anxiety and aggression. Spiritual experiences modify frontal executive regions, wherein these areas become more coherent leading to more effective thinking and planning. Higher frontal coherence is correlated with higher moral reasoning, greater emotional stability, and decreased anxiety. Spiritual experiences enliven executive brain circuits to buffer the impact of noxious experiences and, therefore, could contribute to higher well-being.

The List of research papers on this are by TMs own university by the way. And if you are wondering what the "invincibility thing is all about? This a program they are trying to sell the USA government. Basically, people give up their weapons and TM will meditate which will make America Invincible!. (for the sum of millions of dollars of course

Thanks Ray. And yes, love your description. I had not looked at this for a while as no one had responded. Looking at it now I see that I must have posted it before I had proofread it. The grammar and spelling is terrible! I am amazed anyone was able to make sense of it! I would edit it but it appears that it is to late to do so.

For those without the patience to get through the complexity of grammar it could be summarized as follows:

TM is:

A multimillion pound operation that:

Is actively integrating itself into schools in all countries of the world.
Teaches that it gives those who practice it super-powers
Has placed itself into government agencies such as the FBI and US military
Has been implicated in child abuse and brain washing
Involves, but does not tell those using it, the practitioner generating "mana" in their "bellies" which is then taken from them by ban dimensional entities!

It proves that all of this actually happens with "scientific" research which actually comes from it's own university!

By the way, did you know that Nick Glegg is a member of the Transcendental Movement? Ever wondered where the Lib Dems got so much of their campaign money this time and why the conservatives where so quick to bed them?

http://www.t-m.org.uk/meditation-new...ge-university/

I will repeat this maybe truly one of the most dangerous movements of the 21 century and possible closer to the true Illuminati then most people have come.

This video of one of TM's most senior members, the Raja of Germany, describing what TM really wants (youtube keep taking it down, this bad copy is the only one up I think at the moment) at a press conference in Germany with David Lynch on the panel is interesting. In it the Raja claims TM simply wants to finish what Hitler started! really! watch.

Well said Himit, well said. Have you read the TM founders thoughts on the Veda Mana and how it is produced? Or it's purpose?



Soma and the Gods

This videotape is one of a handful that have become infamous in the TM movement because of their secrecy: It is only shown to TM teachers on the heavily regimented Teacher Training Course (TTC). For many years copies of this tape were not even allowed to enter the continental US.

For good reason! Much like the Church of Scientology's OT materials, "Soma and the Gods" lays out the Maharishi's freakish theology in a way that the public is not deemed "ready" for by the Maharishi and the movement.

According to participants in the Kropinski trial, this tape -- along with the entire TTC catalog -- appeared mysteriously on someone's doorstep one day. Since then the tape has been used by plaintiffs in court cases to prove that the TM movement had a religious, specifically Hindu, agenda -- largely because it's one of the few times the Maharishi was captured on tape talking about worshipping the Vedic Gods. (Of course today, the TM movement sells Hindu sacrifices, yagyas or yajnas, to Ganesh, Lakshmi, and other Gods for thousands of dollars without batting an eye!)

But the true significance of "Soma and the Gods" is much larger. And the theology that the Maharishi espouses is not Hinduism. It is much more idiosyncratic -- and frankly bizarre.

In a nutshell, the Maharishi describes a sort of parasitic relationship between TMers and the Vedic Gods. TMers produce the magical chemical Soma in their gut -- but it isn't something they can use directly. The Vedic Gods, principally Indra, descend from Heaven and feed on the Soma in the TMers' belly. In return for this primitive relationship, the Gods grant all manner of boons. TMers become successful, happy, prosperous, and develop supernormal abilities.

Unbeknownst to non-TM teachers, the entire TM program can be understood through this simple model.

We practice yogic asanas and pranayama to clear the channels through which Soma will flow. We repeat the name of our own personal "Ishta" (God) to summon Him or Her. Advanced TMers practice the sidhis to "stir" the Soma and further clear channels. We read verses from the Ninth Mandala that literally invite the Gods by name to feast on the Soma in our belly: "Flow, Soma, in a most sweet and exhilirating stream, effused for Indra to drink.... Be the lavish giver of wealth, most bounteous, the destroyer of enemies, bestow on us the riches of the affluent." And we take Ayurvedic potions and pills believing we will produce "extra" or "more refined" soma.

An anecdote from a former Maharishi International University (MIU/MUM) professor:

When I was on MIU faculty, there was a special videotape that only faculty were privy to. It was the Ninth Mandala, chanted in the original Sanskrit. Sitting with eyes closed, listening to it was considered a great privilege and was highly secret.

On my Governor Training Course, after we had rounded and rounded and rounded for three months, MMY [the Maharishi] finally called to answer our questions. I asked what we should expect from endlessly reading the Ninth Mandala of the Rig Veda and I never forgot his reply: "It will become a living reality."

To my knowledge, this fairly frightening vision is the Maharishi's alone.

The Rig and Sama Vedas themselves describe the process of making a beverage, soma, by grinding and brewing a certain medicinal plant -- or alternatively by feeding a plant to a cow and then imbibing either its milk or urine. James Allegro speculated some years back that soma was actually the hallucinogenic mushroom amanita muscara, a prevalent inebriator among all Aryan cultures. Perhaps. But even in modern day India, there are hotris who perform the Soma sacrifice using the humble soma plant, and imbibing the juice.

Default The Hidden Agenda of Mantra Meditation

The Hidden Agenda of Mantra Meditation

This is the first chapter in an evolving book, “Blowing the Whistle on Enlightenment: Confessions of a New Age Heretic,” by Bronte Baxter

http://brontebaxter.wordpress.com/bl...w-age-heretic/

And what did Maharishi procure for? The Vedic gods. He sold us a meaningless word that was supposed to guide our minds to transcend superficial consciousness. Later we learned those meaningless words, our mantras, were names of deities. He taught us advanced techniques with the Sanskrit word “namah” at their core: “I bow down.” Mantra meditation is a form of paying worship to those who call themselves gods. When you scrape away all the fancy and misleading explanations – like “meaningless sounds” and “impulses of creative intelligence,” what you get very simply is people with their eyes closed bowing down in their minds to an assigned Hindu deity.


Of course we can explain this away using TM explanations, much like the townsfolk explained away the emperor’s nakedness using the reasoning they were fed by the tricksters who paraded him through the town. But the emperor has no clothes. Mantras worship the gods. “Namah” means “bow down.” It’s right there on the surface for anyone to see if we toss out the excuses we were handed and look at the situation with even a shred of unbiased observation.


Who are these gods, that we’re so willing to explain away as “impulses of our own consciousness”? The same gods have appeared in other religions and cultures, even in societies that had no contact with each other. They go by different names, but the entities are the same. In Hinduism, you have Indra, god of thunder, ruler of the gods, married to Indrani, queen of the gods, known for her jealousy. In Greek mythology, you have Zeus, god of thunder, ruler of the gods, married to Hera, queen of the gods, known for her jealousy. One-to-one correspondence like this is common. The gods are a global phenomenon, with their imprints on every society.

This was posted on this forum but I don't remember which thread.
I SO recommend this blog.

PS: Soma is also the name of a muscle relaxing drug.

Okay, I so0o0o do not reccomend the Braxter blog, because she LIES about Brahama. She is using this Maharishi story to try and give the Vedas a bad name period, which I find a bit sketchty.

www.bowofkama.wordpress.com I reccomend THAT instead LOL

Anywho, the Soma that the gods drank originally was made of a plant. Now, why Maharishi decided to make it into energy rather than the beverage, says to me he is experimenting with this whole bit. But, since he is misrepresented the Vedas, the plan will backfire. So really, posting all this anti-tm shiz is kinda pointless, as it seems the movement has already lost its footing.

If you are going to point fingers at 'religious cults' sucking energy from their members, then you need to go check out the Christians. Do you not think the "aimless prayer" has some affects of energies loss for the pray-ee?? I mean, they are in essense, praying to a 'big man in the sky'. Also, there is no emphasis on growth of the spirit, which in itself makes it a phoney 'spiritual' religion. The focus of the prayer is with the heart. Yes, the heart is a major organ, but thats not where your emotions are, they are in the mind. But hey, let's focus all our energy to our heart chakra and send it out to the sky!! WOOHOO. Youre better off praying for people directly than praying 'to god'.

Well, obviously, it's why I didn't mention it. Christianity that is. But then, Islam, Judaism all have the same one: a former minor clan god of war. But then I distrust any religion with a god/gods. Anyone with even the most minor knowledge of the occult knows that gods are simply energy sucking vampires not to be trusted.

If you do not follow a religion with gods, then what do you follow?

Interesting info on TM (aka "trademark" ) The FBI's "selling" of it, should be a flat out 'no brainer' to even the slightest of awakened individual. Thanks for your research tmtruther.

Being new to meditation in general, I did a little reading on TM and it didn't take much to get a negative feeling about it.

First and foremost, I found they wanted MONEY. Then, and ONLY then, would they give you a "unique" mantra to use. That alone was suspect so I did a little more Google'ing and sure enough, it was right to be suspect of the motives.

Needless to say, I closed the book on TM.

My information is that when certain techniques are practiced for extended periods of time the temple (ie humam body) via glandular excretions gives us the "ambrosia" naturally.

You are very right, I'm from India and this shit of yoga and TM is going on here for thousands of years and people here are more drones/zombies/robots than any other place i have visited.

Yoga/TM is a trap - Illuminati tool to control humanity >>Do not activate your chakra's or kundalinis , it will make you easily possessed. I think this is where David goes wroung here when he combines chakra to his theories.

The greatest lie ever sold was, when you get sick, depressed , something is wrong with you...on the contrary....when you get sick, your body is actually improving to be able to access greater dimensions.

Thats the reason they created all those vaccinations for kids so that they never leave this world.

So this was the reason to feel such darkness every time I hear about TM. Using ppl. as feeding ground for demons.

Actually this mana/soma should be created, but then feed our soul with. These are the living waters Jesus say will flow from the bellies into eternal life of those believing in him. And the body and blood of Christ that desciples should consume.
Lastly this is the oil that sould be rised in extasy to the lamp of the 3-rd eye to lighten it and when done regularly fire of truth will not extinguish. The natural way to activate pineal gland.
