All of us have the potential to enjoy unbounded inner happiness, increased intelligence and creativity, and improved health. While systems for self-development are wide-ranging, our approach focuses on developing the most fundamental level of our life–our consciousness. The Transcendental Meditation® technique and its advanced programmes are simple, natural, effortless techniques to develop consciousness and thereby improve every area of life.
Extensive scientific research has documented that the Transcendental Meditation technique develops the mind and body by dissolving deep-seated stresses and enlivening inner creativity, intelligence, and bliss. Practising this technique is like watering the root of a tree. As watering the root of the tree nourishes and enriches every branch, leaf, and flower of the tree, the regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique has a wide range of benefits that positively impact every aspect of our life.
Why is the Transcendental Meditation technique so effective?
Most mental practices keep the mind active in some way, on the surface thinking level. The Transcendental Meditation technique allows the mind to effortlessly transcend and experience a deep state of restful alertness known as Transcendental Consciousness, or pure consciousness.
Pure consciousness is an infinite reservoir of intelligence, creativity, and bliss that exists at the subtlest level of our mind, underlying our thoughts, feelings, actions, and behaviour. As we repeatedly transcend and experience pure consciousness, its qualities of energy, intelligence, creativity, and bliss become more and more lively within us.
The many benefits for mind, body, and behaviour that have been shown to result from the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique are the automatic result of the unique experience of transcending.
Benefits of practising the Transcendental Meditation technique
Regular practice of Transcendental Meditation has been found to increase orderly brain functioning and create deep, stress-relieving rest for the body. On this basis, we feel healthier, happier, and more fulfilled. We are more successful in our actions and are more capable of giving to our friends, family, community, and world.
With increased well-being we also naturally and effortlessly begin to make healthier and more rewarding life choices. Using this simple, natural technique to experience our innermost self and develop our consciousness gives us the possibility of unlimited personal growth.
