Transcendental Meditation (TM) refers to a specific form of mantra meditation called the Transcendental Meditation technique. TM is said to bring the practitioner to a special state of consciousness often characterized as enlightenment or bliss. The method involves entertaining a mantra. It is the purest, simplest, and most effective form of meditation the world has known. It is the pure technique of transcending – settling to the simplest, most powerful state of awareness – untainted by any mind control or thought process.
This one simple technique allows you to go beyond thinking and contact the deep, transcendental source of all your energy, creativity and intelligence, dissolving stress and enriching mind, body, emotions and relationships. It produces a coherent state of restful alertness – a state of true inner peace, for your mind and also your body. Deep within your mind is a peaceful field of pure consciousness, your own awareness awake to its own most settled state. Transcendental Meditation allows you to experience this – effortlessly.
It eliminates the effects of stress internally and physiologically. When practised regularly, this results in a more balanced outlook, more energy and motivation and a deeper appreciation of one’s surroundings. It is a simple, natural technique. This form of meditation allows your body to settle into a state of profound rest and relaxation and your mind to achieve a state of inner peace, without needing to use concentration or effort.
Transcendental Meditation is an effortless technique that allows your mind to settle inward, beyond thinking, to experience pure awareness—the most silent and peaceful level of the mind, your innermost self. It doesn’t require clearing your mind of thoughts or concentrating. It’s so effortless that within just a few minutes anyone can transcend or go beyond worries and agitation.
During the TM technique, the mind and body gain deep, restorative rest—much deeper than ordinary relaxation. The healing rest gained during the technique allows emotional, mental and physical stress to wash away—improving overall health, well-being and behaviour.
