Transcendental Meditation and It's Meaning
What it is
This is a very simple, natural, effortless technique that is practiced for 15-20 minutes a day, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. During the session the mind settles down experiencing finer levels of thought, until it transcends the finest level of thought and experiences the source of thought, pure consciousness, the source of unlimited creativity and intelligence of both man and nature. It does not involve concentration or control of the mind and it is not a religion, philosophy or change of lifestyle.

How does it work?
The process of transcending thought is simple, effortless, and enjoyable.

The TM program is taught through a 7 step course of instruction offered through hundreds of Maharishi Vedic Universities and schools throughout the world.
