Hollywood Filmmaker Believes Meditation Could Help Curb Crime In Philly

…  “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.

BY PROF. WILLIAM T. HATHAWAY

“At birth I suffered a brain injury. An EEG test showed chaotic, abnormal brain waves, and in school I had Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). I couldn’t concentrate, and my thoughts were clouded. My grades were mediocre, and I flunked out of my first university. I wanted to become a writer, but my writing was disorganized and unclear. In despair, I took drugs, but they made my thoughts even foggier.

Then I started the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique. In a few weeks my thoughts became clearer, and I didn’t want drugs anymore. I could concentrate. And I could write. One of my essays gained me entrance to a much better university, Columbia, and this time my grades were so good I received a scholarship. My first novel won a Rinehart Foundation Award, and I became a professor of creative writing and won a Fulbright grant to teach at universities in Germany. I’ve now published eight books.” …
