“The potential of every human brain is unbounded, infinite. Everyone is equipped with the physical machinery in his brain physiology to experience through Transcendental Meditation that level of intelligence which is the ocean of all knowledge, the ocean of all energy, intelligence, and bliss.”
--- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme

What is the Transcendental Meditation technique?

John Hagelin, Ph.D., is a world-renowned quantum physicist, educator, author, and a leading researcher on the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique for the individual and society. Dr. Hagelin is Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management, Iowa, USA; and International Director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace.

What is Transcendental Meditation?

The Transcendental Meditation ™ technique is a simple, effortless technique for improving all areas of life. The technique is easily learned and is practiced sitting comfortably in a chair with the eyes closed for 15 to 20 minutes twice a day.

What happens when you meditate?

During the TM practice, the active thinking mind settles down naturally to a state of “pure consciousness,” where the mind is silent yet fully alert. At the same time the body gains a profound state of rest and relaxation.

What are the benefits of this experience?

This unique state of “restful alertness” develops the total brain and eliminates accumulated stress and fatigue. This experience is the basis for the i
ncreased creativity and intelligence and improved health reported by people who practice the Transcendental Meditation technique.

Is there any scientific evidence to show that the technique works?

Yes. More than 600 scientific studies on the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation have been conducted at 250 independent universities and research institutions, including Harvard Medical School, Cornell Medical School, University of Michigan Medical School, and UCLA, Medical School.

Has the research been published?

Yes. Research has been published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals, including Scientific American, Science, and the American Heart Association’s Hypertension and Stroke, and the American Medical Association’s Archives of Internal Medicine. Moreover, during the past 18 years, the US National Institutes of Health has awarded over $24 million to study the beneficial effects of the TM programme on heart disease, hypertension and stroke.

To practice TM do I have to change my diet, or adopt a particular lifestyle or religion?

No. The Transcendental Meditation technique does not require a change in lifestyle. Introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi over half a century ago, the TM technique has now been learned by over five million people of all ages, nationalities, and religions. TM meditators report that the reduced stress and increased clarity of mind resulting from Transcendental Meditation practice have helped them to appreciate life more fully – and, for religious people, to follow their religions more faithfully. Although it is not connected to any religion, TM and it's advanced techniques does enliven the Light of God, the Will of God at the source of thought, the most basic level of nature's functioning.  This brings the life of the individual in harmony with Natural Law, the Will of God, and produces spiritual growth which culminates in enlightenment and bestows mastery over Natural Law.

Is it correct to say that all meditation techniques produce similar results?

No. There are striking physiological and neuro-physiological differences between various meditation techniques. For example, EEG and brain imaging technologies clearly distinguish the TM technique from all other practices, showing enhanced EEG coherence and marked improvements in the all-important prefrontal cortex (the “CWO” of the brain), which governs such key executive functions as planning, decision making, problem solving, and judgment.

Do other meditation techniques produce similar health benefits?

Many comprehensive meta-analyses of published studies on meditation and stress-reduction techniques clearly show that the Transcendental Meditation technique produces highly beneficial effects for health that are not produced by other techniques. These include marked reductions in high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other stress-related disorders.

I am a sceptic.

Being skeptical is fine. Fortunately, no belief or change in beliefs is required to learn and practice the TM technique – and to gain all the benefits. In fact, you can be 100 percent skeptical and the TM technique will work just fine.
