From the original homepage: Meditation is one of nature's miracles [...] And TM seems to be as good or better than any of the forms of meditation that we know of [...] We believe that the majority of people who practice TM will find that they enjoy it [...] We do, however, think there is evidence that it is either not effective [...] for a certain percentage of the population, on the order of 10% to 20% [...] We do feel that the TM movement [...] is in need of serious reform to bring it in line with the ethical - even legal - standards our culture expects.
