    Policy misunderstanding[edit]

    This action is _______ and policy use per Wikipedia:List of companies engaged in the self-publishing business, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform is not listed. This doesn't mean it should be added to the list without consensus for proving a point. There is no WP:BURDEN or WP:SPAM too. Ref. Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not about winning and always be in check in ambiguous situations on whether actions are bordering with pettifoggery and if possible facilitate WP:FRIENDLYSPACE.

    It is a company engaged in self-publishing and it is listed in the Wikipedia:List of companies engaged in the self-publishing business. JimRenge (talk) 14:20, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

    Better definition?[edit]

    Please can I suggest "Meditation is a practice in which an individual operates their conscious mind in a way that is different from that used in normal day to day life. " as this includes many other practices widely considered as meditation, e.g. 'no thought' and single point concentration practices.JCJC777 (talk) 18.07, 29 April 2017 (UTC)JCJC777)

    Special status for Transcendental Meditation?[edit]

    A large section about the virtue of Transcendental Meditation (TM) with the title "Effects of meditation in schools" was spammed into the article eight months ago by an SPA. At first blush, the section seems respectable because it is accompanied by a flurry of research citations. But, as our own article on TM points out, research concerning TM is of poor quality and includes "a high risk for bias due to the connection of researchers to the TM organization". Consequently, I have removed the section. The main thing setting TM apart from other meditation techniques is the intensity with which it is commercially promoted. Otherwise there is nothing particularly special about TM forms of meditation, which are essentially traditional Hindu forms. Wikipedia should not be functioning as an advertising arm for the TM organisation. --Epipelagic (talk) 17:28, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
