Over 600 studies, published in leading scientific journals, have verified the benefits of Transcendental Meditation. The practice takes only 15-20 minutes twice daily, sitting comfortably with eyes closed, and is effective from the first session of personal instruction. It is the quickest, easiest and most effective way of realizing your creative potential.
- The idea is not to control the mind, but to satisfy it. Transcendental Meditation satisfies the mind's natural tendency to transcend busy surface thinking and settle down to a state of restful alertness more refreshing than sleep during which accumulated stress is eliminated.
During Transcendental Meditation, transcending happens spontaneously, without effort. Nature does it, not we ourselves.
The transcendent upholds and nourishes the three relative states - waking, dreaming and sleeping. Lack of regular experience of the transcendent is at the root of individual and social stress. Life confined to waking, dreaming and sleeping is not able to cope with the rapid pace of change in everyday life. Life becomes a struggle.
The direct experience of Transcendental Meditation is blissful. On the other hand, trying to transcend or just thinking about it is ineffective and frustrating. Transcendental Meditation is the most easily learned meditation because it is the only one that is completely effortless - completely natural. Anyone and everyone can do it.
Transcending gives access to the inbuilt ability of the human physiology to automatically eliminate the accumulated stress that hinders its normal, natural functioning. During transcending, brainwave patterns reach a uniquely high degree of coherence, oxygen consumption decreases to a level below that of sleep, arteries expand and toxins dissolve. A peaceful, integrated, energy-efficient state is experienced. It happens all by itself. It cannot be achieved by trying.
The benefits of Transcendental Meditation accumulate with regular practice. They include:
- Realization of creative potential
- Experience of inner peace
- Ability to achieve more with less effort
- Greater enjoyment of life

Two conditions that can be expected to get significantly better within days of learning TM:
Transcendental Meditation does NOT involve:
- Thought control or mind-watching
- Trying to empty the mind
- Trying to relax or sit still.
Click on Latest News for recent research showing how the Transcendental Meditation technique can be distinguished from all other systems - which teach either "focused attention" or "open monitoring". None of these is effortless. None allows the mind to fulfil its natural tendency to transcend. None gives the benefits that Transcendental Meditation gives.
