  6. David_spector (talk · contribs) (I am interested in working on this family of Transcendental Meditation articles once the editors are peacefully cooperating with each other; my special interest is in grouping all criticisms or negative points in their own section, so TM can 'speak for itself' in its usual easy-to-understand way, yet it is clear to the reader that there are other POVs about TM: these are specific and general criticisms that should be considered for a complete picture of the topic. These are POVs which I would characterize as not sharing the understandings, knowledge, practices, or beliefs of those who have worked or are working closely with the TM Movement) 17:12, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
