Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Many people have asked us whether NSR© Meditation is
the same as Transcendental Meditation®. The answer is no. Considering all
the factors, we believe we're better (see our comparison page for details). But we realized that
it would be helpful for our visitors to have the following summary
of TM, to help them understand how NSR is similar and how it is
We have nothing against the intent of TM® organization itself.
We know that they want people to learn TM, and to learn it correctly.
On the plus side, they offer several
excellent programs with personal instruction by certified,
experienced instructors. But there's one big catch: inflexible policies
including high course fees, religiosity, and mysticism alienate many
of those who otherwise would learn TM.
TM® Has Many Benefits
(The TM® lawyers have asked us to remove this
section. You can find descriptions of these benefits on
the TM® website.
Our point is simply that stress, being the
only reason for fear,
weakness, and limitations in life, is easily dissolved
by the deep rest provided by transcending, no matter
who teaches it or in what way it is taught.)
But TM® Is Expensive
The current course fee for TM (adults, USA, as of January, 2016) is $960.00.
NSR© Is Affordable!
The course fee for NSR is only $47 (lower for those in
financial need). Why? Because we want everyone to be
able to learn.
