Many people have asked us whether NSR Meditation is the same as Transcendental Meditation®. The answer is no. Considering all the factors, we believe we're better (see our comparison page for details). But we realized that it would be helpful for our visitors to have the following summary of TM, to help them understand how NSR might be considered similar or different.

TM® Has Many Benefits

Rather than our trying to describe the benefits of TM®, please read the the TM® website for yourself.

But TM® Is Expensive

The TM course fee for adults with under $50,000 income is $500; for greater, up to $960 (as of January, 2020; see https://www.tm.org/course-fee).

NSR Is Affordable!

The course fee for NSR is only $47 USD (lower for those in financial need). Why? Because we want everyone to be able to learn.

Want to learn TM at a Peace Palace or Center of Invincibility somewhere, perhaps even in another state? Visit the TM website. Want to teach yourself NSR at your own pace in your own home? Complete the confidential order form. It's your choice. We hope you make it on reliable criteria, such as price, convenience, scientific research, or the experiences of practitioners.
