RAMA MEDITATION SOCIETY (RMS) – February 2018
Overview – Rama Meditation Society (RMS) is a non-profit corporation formed by students of Rama’s teachings.
Mission – Our mission is to preserve and share the body of works of Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz – and to support the continued transformation of those inspired by his teachings.
– The copyrights to Rama’s works are owned by the Lenz Foundation. In 2012, RMS entered into a non-exclusive license agreement with the Foundation to enable free downloads of Rama’s works and links to materials for sale through Amazon and other outlets.
– In 2011, RMS partnered with the Foundation to promote the Rama Materials Marketing Campaign (RMMC). The RMMC campaign obtained funds – held (and matched) by the Foundation – to promote Rama’s works.
– In mid-2015, the Foundation provided RMS & other Rama student organizations with its remaining inventory of books, CDs, and DVDs. RMS has been storing and distributing these materials (at no charge).
