Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a way to avoid God by using evil Spirits. It is a form of demon worship. That mantra is the name of a demon. It is also an alternate way of approaching God, or a god. God has a way for us to be born again and He has a way for us to grow up into Him. There are many religious things that we could do to try to help ourselves spiritually. God has provided a way to spiritual fulfillment. It is through simple submission to Jesus Christ. It is the flowing of the Anointing of the Holy Spirit of God. It is by being born again and then growing up into the fullness of Christ. The growing up is accomplished through the called out people of God being formed into a Holy Temple that is built according to the pattern found in Scripture. This is a temple of living stones. The living stones are the members of the Body of Christ. Transcendental Meditation (TM) is an alternate method, a satanic method, of finding supposed spiritual fulfillment. It will not lead to spiritual fulfillment, though.
There is a huge difference between the meditation of which the Bible speaks and the meditation of the Eastern religions. God has promised that anyone who seeks the Holy Spirit from Him will receive the Holy Spirit and not a serpent. God has promised that anyone who seeks the Christ will receive the Christ and not the natural mind. All who keep on seeking do find, and they find the King of Kings if that is the Person whom they are seeking. Those who blank their minds for a spiritual experience will get something else, however. They are not seeking God. They are seeking something and they don't know what it is.
While Transcendental Meditation makes the promise of peace using demonic powers, Christianity is based on Jesus Christ, the Living Christ, Who reveals Himself to the Christian on an ongoing basis. Believer's have the supernatural trust that is a gift from God. By this trust, we see Jesus and hear His Voice. It is Jesus Himself who reveals to us that the Bible is His Word, His Utterance. And it is Jesus Himself Who speaks to us through His Word. Jesus speaks to us through many different means: Scripture, intuition, bringing Scripture to our remembrance, apostles, prophets, etc. When God speaks to us, faith comes and with faith comes a vision of hope. This vision shows us who we are in Christ in an ever-more-clear understanding. When God speaks, He instructs us what to think, what to say, and what to do. Then, He does the work through us by His grace, His free gift of righteousness. This righteousness of God in us is the moving of the Holy Spirit that transfigures us from glory to glory to be like Jesus, killing our fleshly nature and causing Christ to be more fully formed in us. And this death to self, to the old adamic sin nature, and building up of Christ is the very thing that redeems us, sets us free from slavery to the fleshly nature, to Satan, to the pressures of the world, and to death. (some caveats about hearing God's Voice)
The purpose of the meditation techniques of Transcendental Meditation and the exercises of Yoga are to bring about spirit possession. You don't want to go there.
Those who believe the teachings of Transcendental Meditation (TM) don't really believe Jesus when He tells them that it is in Him alone that they can find life, peace, joy, fulfillment, love, righteousness, and every other good thing. Those who believe the teachings of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) don't really believe Jesus when He tells them that rejecting Him as their one and only God is the most serious sin that could be committed--the sin against the first commandment.
Those who believe the teachings of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) generally don't realize that they were created to be joined to Jesus Christ, to have a continual flow of the Anointing of His Holy Spirit through them so that the Spirit will continually lead them and the Creator will do His work through them. Those who believe the teachings of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) are blind to the fact that they were created to walk from glory to every-increasing glory by the Spirit of God. They are trapped in their own desires and tangled in the many lies that come from the father of all lies. If they did listen, God would set them free.
Instead, those who believe the teachings of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) are still in their sins. They attempt in vain to establish their own righteousness, a self-righteousness, and so they are unable to receive the free gift of righteousness that comes from the throne of God. If they would abandon their self-righteousness and self-dependence and believe God rather than their own understanding, and if they would stop contending against Jesus but rather accept Him and His free gift, then God would deliver them.

As a Christian, when you see anyone who has been deceived by Transcendental Meditation (TM), it is important to look to Jesus and let the love of God flow to them as it is shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost. Perhaps you will pray. Perhaps God will give you a word of wisdom or a word of knowledge. Perhaps someone will turn to Christ.
Of course, everyone is aware that Satanism is demon worship, but what about Transcendental Meditation? The fact is that Transcendental Meditation and what have become known as Eastern religions-too many to mention-are demon based cults.
