It costs more than money.

?

I did pay 250 pounds and you get told not to tell anyone – they say that the idea is that you feel ownership of something that you pay for. Buddhist centres do meditations for a small offering I ofund no difference in quality although they say that they check the quality of oyur meditation and also do a small personal ritual at the end – I learned as much at the local Buddhist centre which does not proseletyse.
In fact I have learned as much from Osho’s book on different meditations.

Yes, you do have to pay. Quite a lot, actually.
Basically what Maharishi Mahesh Yogi did is rip off thousands of years of Indian mystic tradition, package it up nicely as TM, and sell it to Westerners. But all the techniques of meditation are in the public domain.
For what it’s worth, this is how you do TM. Sit quietly and relax with your eyes closed. Slow your breathing. Repeat mentally a single-syllable mantra. Just let things happen without striving for a particular mental state. Eventually your mind will stop wandering and will become still and calm. Stop after 20 minutes. Do this twice a day. That’s all there is to it.
You might find that Buddhist meditation is more highly developed.
