I started TM in 1972 and have been a regular meditator ever since. It simply changed my life.

Over the years, I have urged many people to do TM. Of the 15 friends who took my advice only three have continued regular practice. I have decided that when it is good it is very very good but when it is bad it is a loss. I do not feel it is my place to recommend the practice. All I can say is it worked for me.

I paid $75 and it was worth much more. But given the current initiation price, I would never have paid it and I believe my life would still be a misery.

For context, since starting meditation, I have had 1600 hours of psychotherapy including on-the-couch psychoanalysis and group therapy. Each of my therapy hours cost at least $30 more than my single TM initiation fee.

Most of my therapy was successful. But if I had to choose between the benefits of TM vs therapy. TM wins hands down.
