To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All records, specifically including previously unreleased records, relating to or mentioning Transcendental Meditation.

Please conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, for both main-file records and cross-reference records for all relevant names, individuals, agencies and companies. Please search HQ records as well as ALL field offices and resident agencies.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about Transcendental Meditation for Genetic Literacy Project and The Method. My articles have been widely read, with some reaching over 20,000 readers. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
