Why I Tend To Scream (I'm Not Bullshitting You)

"The [Transcendental Meditation] doctrine brings some zany ideas into one's mind without them having been properly screened for their value. TM philosophy is a non-too-suble form of indoctrination into a style of thinking which, quite frankly, is the armchair philosophy of it's propounder, Mr Mahesh (above, the self-styled 'maharishi', who poses as a guru). And because the stuff is said gently, softly, peacefully, it just slips in and becomes a part of one's own arsenal of ideas. However, some of the stuff is just make-believe and wishful thinking."

  1. Many critics consider Transcendental Meditation a cult led by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. For an alternative view of the TM Movement, readers may be interested in checking out TM-Free Blog,, or my counseling site,, where individuals recovering from Transcendental Meditation and similar groups will find helpful information.
