"Of most concern with young children using TM mediation is the possible harmful side effects of this type of meditation. “The public views meditation as benign, which is often the case. However, when taught and practiced in a rigid, formulistic way within a totalistic group led by a grandiose leader, meditation can become a dangerous habit that could create severe psychological problems.” writes Steven Alan Hassan. Many ex-TM students and teachers have come out confirming the dangers of this technique. “A disturbing denial or avoidance syndrome, and even outright lies and deception, are used to cover-up or sanitize the dangerous reality on campus of very serious nervous breakdowns, episodes of dangerous and bizarre behavior, suicidal and homicidal ideation, threats and attempts, psychotic episodes, crime, depression and manic behavior that often accompanied roundings (intensive group meditations with brainwashing techniques)” writes ex-TMer Attorney Anthony D. DeNaro"

"The possibility that this meditation technique could cause harm or create “dangerous and bizarre behavior” make this an unwise choice to bring into our schools."

"Transcendental meditation is said to be associatedwith clinical outcomes such as blood pressure reduction and physiological changes such as lowered blood cortisol levels. There are however, a number of case reports in the mainstream medical literature describing occasional adverse psychological (Heide et al. 1984; The various implications arising from the practice of transcendental meditation, 1980) and physical effects (Persinger, 1993) that appear to be causally related to the technique. These adverse events range from mild to severe and warrant further systematic investigation Otis, 1984)."
