Transendental Mediation (TM) Mantra Variations?

A few years ago, after reading about Transcendental Meditation (TM), I did a quick search for the mantras. The partial screen shot below is the only site I remember at that time with TM mantras that came up (which at the time of publishing this post is now down with only a page marker to archiving at archive.org).

Naturally, this has changed.

Recently I couldn’t find this screen shot right away so I put off looking for it and did another search. The multiple following sources express varying degrees of sameness and difference of the TM mantras for various reasons (and lack of reasons). What gives? Maybe this is now a promotion to go learn the TM technique, the proper way, from a certified TM teacher?
