We are all looking for something more in our lives: more happiness, better health, greater achievement and deeper fulfillment. Some people may be looking for a way to reduce stress and increase inner peace; others may want to increase their mental potential and achieve more in life; and there may be a few who seek eternal freedom and happiness within.
Here we have an ancient but scientifically validated program known as Transcendental Meditation(TM) as a simple technique for holistic development, providing solutions to all contemporary challenges facing people and societies around the world.
What is Transcendental Meditation?
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural and effortless technique that is practiced 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. No concentration, no control of the mind is needed to practice this technique. Also, in the TM technique there is no thought control or “trying to empty” the mind. Also, it does not require any change in lifestyle or belief system to learn this technique. More than 10 million people have learned TM, from all ages, cultures, religions and walks of life.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi introduced this technique throughout the world in the late 1950s to help each individual develop the vast inner potential that plays an important role in being successful and happier in life.
The Transcendental Meditation technique allows our active mind to settle naturally and spontaneously, through calmer levels of thought, until we experience the quietest and most peaceful level of our own awareness: Pure Awareness, happiness reserve, creativity and infinite intelligence.
As we practice this technique regularly, it helps to increase that joy, intelligence along with success and fulfillment in our daily lives.
What are the benefits of Transcendental Meditation?
There are more than 650 scientific research studies, 400 of them published in peer-reviewed journals, conducted at more than 250 universities and research institutes in 30 countries over the last 50 years, documenting the benefits of Transcendental Meditation in the field of meditation. mind potential. health, behavior and society.
When the mind calms down during TM practice, the body gains a unique state of deep rest, which naturally dissolves deep-seated tensions, helping to reduce:
– High blood pressure
– Insulin resistance
– Post-traumatic stress disorder
– Autism Spectrum and many other diseases.
Research shows that MT supports a healthier heart, boosts immunity, and lowers the rate of hospitalization. On top of that, it promotes a younger biological age and enhances gene expression.
TM produces a unique type of brain functioning, it shows an exceptional order measured by electroencephalogram, called EEG. The increased order is called EEG coherence. High EEG coherence is significantly associated with:
– Greater creativity
– Greater learning capacity
– Higher moral reasoning
– Higher Intelligence (IQ)
– Less neurotic behavior
– Superior Academic Performance
– Clearer experiences of Transcendental Consciousness—the field of our total inner intelligence
– And a more efficient functioning of our Nervous System.
TM also helps improve memory, increases field independence and fluid intelligence. Helps increase self-actualization, which leads to mental clarity, confidence, and goal-achieving abilities. Furthermore, research shows that TM helps to develop higher states of consciousness and enlightenment: complete development of mind and physiology.
When we are less stressed and more relaxed, we are able to give more to others: our relationships naturally become more pleasant, there is more understanding and compassion towards others.
Research studies indicate that people who practice TM have better work and personal relationships; greater appreciation for others; and higher tolerance. When TM was taught in prisons, it was seen through research that there was a reduction in aggression, verbal hostility, and the tendency to aggression and recidivism in inmates.
“We radiate who we are”—When we feel peace, happiness, and calm within us, it naturally spreads around us.
Many scientific studies show that when a large group of people, more than 1% of the population in a certain area, practice TM, it naturally increases the positive tendencies and reduces the negative tendencies in the certain area; this phenomenon is known as:Maharishi effect.
When groups practiced the TM and its Advanced Programs (square root of one percent of the population in the given area) it was enough to reduce violent crime, homicides, traffic deaths, other accidental deaths, related deaths with drugs, infant mortality and greater peace in the society, as recorded in various areas such as Lebanon, Cambodia, the US, the Netherlands, etc. through multiple research studies, known as Extended Maharishi Effect.
“Watering the root to enjoy the fruit”—just as watering the roots nourishes the trunk, branches, leaves, fruit, and flowers, similarly Transcendental Meditation nourishes life as a whole: mind, body, behavior, and society, vivifying the basis of life – Transcendental Consciousness in one’s own consciousness and develops higher states of consciousness and a more harmonious, healthy and peaceful world.
