In an historic video from 1971, a Swiss journalist asks TM Founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi about the relationship between the Transcendental Meditation technique and religion. In this episode of TM Talks, host Mario Orsatti and David Lynch Foundation CEO Bob Roth discuss excerpts from this famous interview, in which Maharishi explains how TM practice helps fulfill the goals of religion.

Maharishi explains that the TM technique is a great friend of Christianity and all religions because transcending takes the meditator to that universal field of pure consciousness, which has been described by many religions as the Kingdom of Heaven within. When experienced regularly through daily TM practice, pure consciousness helps a person to spontaneously live a truly good, truly religious life.

Orsatti, Executive Director of the Center for Health and Wellness, a division of the David Lynch Foundation, spoke with Roth on September 6, 2020.
