What TM is not. It's not a religion, philosophy or lifestyle. It's not concentration, contemplation, or trying to be mindful - nor is it common "mantra" meditation. How is TM different?

How does it work? Transcendental Meditation allows the mind to effortlessly transcend, to go beyond busy or agitated levels of thinking to arrive at a peaceful, harmonious state of mind and body, the natural state of pure awareness or restful alertness. This experience is described as one's innermost self, where the mind is silent yet wide awake to it's full potential. Why practise TM?

"In this meditation we do not concentrate or control the mind. We satisfy the mind."


Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of Transcendental Meditation
