Dear Ms. King - I couldn't agree more that meditation is a powerful tool with lasting benefits to all areas of our lives and deep changes are possible with regular practice.

There are studies out there that have documented how groups of people (in this case practicing TM) who meditated together for an extended period of time caused crime rates to lower significantly. If the whole planet could come together in this way - it would be truly astounding.

I've gone the route of learning and practicing TM (regularly now for nearly 10 years) and have found for me it is markedly more powerful that sitting and being with my breath or a particular word. I feel that my TM practice has lead me to that place that Norman Vincent Peale speaks of " a deep, fundamental, powerful relationship of the individual to God whereby one’s whole mind and heart become changed and one receives power [internally] from God... I have seen [it].” I have experienced it and am so very grateful. Thank you for your message!
