TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION

Adopted by the General Conference in 1976

Whereas the United States Constitution guarantees the separation of church and state, and

Whereas the program of Transcendental Meditation and the Science of Creative Intelligence is a religious system embracing Hindu principles and rituals, and

Whereas this religious system is detrimental to the Christian fundamentals of our American heritage, and

Whereas Transcendental Meditation promoted as only a system of mind relaxation has been funded by several thousand dollars from various federal agencies to be taught as a course of study in colleges, public schools, and armed forces, and

Whereas several Congressmen are promoting the further use of this subject in our nation's educational system,

Be it therefore resolved that the United Pentecostal Church International go on record as strongly objecting to the further funding, promotion, or teaching of this subject in the classrooms and institutions of America.

The above is a position paper of the United Pentecostal Church International and is provided for informational purposes.
