WHY WE USE SYMBOLS/ICONS IN OUR LISTS.

Please note:

ICSA does NOT maintain a list of "bad" groups or "cults."  We nonjudgmentally list groups on which we have information.

Groups listed, described, or referred to on ICSA's Web sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.

We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.

How TM Will End Crime [Proposes LA pay them $165 million yearly]

The $165 million per year payable to the Transcendental Meditation organization by the City of Los Angeles, in return for an end to crime, would finance 9,000 "coherence creating experts" who would seek deeper levels of consciousness through transcendental meditation and radiate peace and goodwill in our many areas of calamity. The experts, according to TM, "have been trained to create a powerful influence of harmony, balance, and positivity in the atmosphere," and thereby neutralize criminal tendencies.

Leader Maharishi Mahesh Yogi said in an interview, "You must not think we are making money" [if the TM proposal were to be accepted]. The money paid by the city will go back to hotels and restaurants, except for the airline fares. The Maharishi said that the crime prevention scheme had worked in Washington, D.C. Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley said of the project: "If I could find $100 million a year, I'd use it to put more cops on the street."
