What Is TM?
It is practiced for twenty minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with closed eyes. During the meditation, the mind settles to quieter and quieter levels of thought and even beyond thought to a natural state of inner silence. The mind rests in a silent reservoir of intelligence, energy, and creativity: the source of conscious thought. While the mind is functioning in this more refined manner, the body correspondingly settles to a state of deep rest. Published research shows that during this experience, the brain functions with significantly greater coherence and metabolism is quieted. One feels a profound physical relaxation and yet the mind remains restfully alert.
The Transcendental Meditation program is unique among techniques of meditation, distinguished by its simple practice and profound immediate and lifelong results. It is not a religion or philosophy and involves no change in lifestyle. It is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, requiring no effort, concentration or special skills. Anyone can learn it—even children. It is by far the most researched, verified and universally applicable program for self-development.
Benefits Of TM
The Mind–Intelligence, Creativity, Focus
Daily practice of the TM technique provides repeated experience of more profound, coherent levels of thought, unfolding the mind’s inner potential, and awakening the brain’s latent resources. Published scientific research shows that this technique uniquely enlivens the function of the prefrontal cortex, often called the “CEO” of the brain, allowing for more organized thought and better decision-making. Furthermore, research has shown that the daily experience of this state of restful alertness leads to increased creativity, improved learning ability, higher IQ, higher moral reasoning, and more efficient brain functioning.
