… “Philadelphia was very very very good to me,” says Lynch.
Now he wants to return the favor to Philadelphia by giving the gift of “Transcendental Meditation.”
“Transcendental Meditation is not a religion. It’s not a cult. It’s a mental technique,” said Lynch, who runs a foundation in his name to teach TM.
He says it allows adults and kids to experience the deepest level of life.
“You’re given a mantra. The mantra you’re given in transcendental meditation is just like a law of nature. Designed for a specific purpose and that purpose is to turn the awareness from out out out 180 degrees to within within within. It’s easy and effortless it does not involve trying,” said Lynch.
And he says he wants to take that approach to Philly’s schools to stop violence, including some of the smallest behavior problems.
“Pretty books, painting the school room isn’t going to do a damn thing for this. You gotta get these kids diving in, transcending everyday,” he says. …”

Wholeness is from the simple definition, it is everything. Whole, it is holy, there is a holy value, which is holistic. There is wholeness, everything… puts everything together. There are different levels of wholeness, you have the whole is more than the sum of its parts. You get an entity, which is made out of elements. These elements constitute values of that entity. But, you don’t appreciate that entity until you see more than the parts, and you see how the parts come together to form something that is a human being, that is a flower, that is… music or a symphony whatever it is there is a wholeness in that reality.
When we talk about real wholeness it is the wholeness of everything in life, which means when we put all the parts of life together what do we get? When we put the trees with the flowers, with the human beings, with the buildings, with the animals, with the galaxies, with the entire planetary systems and stars and with the details of the people and societies and life as a whole we get the grand wholeness of existence. That is life itself… So it is a way of seeing the totality of life the wholeness of life beyond its specificities.
