What is Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation or TM as it is often called, is a simple, natural technique practiced effortlessly for 20 minutes morning and evening, while sitting silently and comfortably with the eyes closed.

During TM your mind effortlessly transcends mental activity and experiences pure consciousness at the source of thought

During TM your mind effortlessly transcends mental activity and experiences pure consciousness at the source of thought, while your body experiences a unique state of restful alertness.

This deep rest allows stress and tiredness to be released in a natural way. Practised on a daily basis, the result for the practitioner is a growing experience of better health, greater energy, increasing mental clarity and deeper enjoyment of life.

Generally with TM, you find you can achieve more with less effort, and that work, recreation and relationships are more rewarding.

Importantly, benefits are cumulative with regular practice and a number of studies document this fact. 

Standardised teaching and practice

One of the unique features of TM is that it is taught and practiced in a highly systematic and standardised way by instructors who have experienced several years of training.

The consequence of this standardisation, apart from giving consistent benefits to practitioners, is that these benefits can be monitored and documented in scientific research studies.

Over 600 research studies have been conducted into the effects of Transcendental Meditation at over 200 universities and research institutes in 27 different countries

During the past 40 years, over 600 research studies have been conducted into the effects of Transcendental Meditation at over 200 universities and research institutes in 27 different countries. Several hundred of these studies have been published in peer reviewed scientific journals.

Extensive list of TM benefits

Benefits observed by research studies show that TM:

I came out of the Himalayas with a method designed to raise both the head and the heart of man to the point where knowledge and appreciation of the quality of his higher nature can be attained.

I call my method Transcendental Meditation, but it is, in fact, a technique of self-exploration; it enables a man to dive into the innermost reaches of his being, in which dwells the essence of life and the source of all wisdom, all creativity, all peace, and all happiness. It is that place which has been called, in the Christian teaching, the “Kingdom of Heaven within”.

His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi - 1961 Founder of TM
