Transcendental Meditation Benefits

Regular practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) can treat your stress-related problems such as high blood pressure, improve your mental capabilities and help you improve your relationships. Overall, TM will make you a relaxed, happier and contented person. Let's see how this happens:

  • Improves intelligence, creativity & memory: Research has shown that the experience of pure consciousness during TM twice a day makes the mind more alert, creative, and intelligent throughout the day.
  • Provides complete rest: TM provides the mind and body with a unique and profound state of restful alertness. The body gains an extraordinarily deep state of rest while the mind settles down to a state of inner calm and wakefulness.
  • Improves health: Since both the mind and the body are rejuvenated, it leads to improved health and provides the basis for a more dynamic, productive, and satisfying life.
Is there any scientific proof of TM's benefits?

Over 500 scientific studies have been conducted on the physiological, psychological, and sociological effects of Mahesh Yogi's TM programme. These studies have been carried out at 210 different universities and research institutions in more than 30 countries. Results of these studies have appeared in more than 100 journals, including major scientific journals such as Science , the American Journal of Physiology, Scientific American, and the Lancet. The studies have shown that a regular practice of TM is highly beneficial and leads to:
  • Reduced stress: The deep rest that the mind and body get in TM eliminates mental and physical stress and fatigue.
  • Increased intelligence: The mind returns to its natural state of alertness and thus increases the person. s intelligence level.
  • Increased creativity: TM meditators become more creative than others because the mind is in a refreshed and relaxed state.
  • Improved memory: The mind. s state of alertness increases its capacity to memorise things.
  • Improved health: Incidence of illness and risk of heart disease is reduced significantly among TM meditators.
  • Reduced high blood pressure: Free from stress and anxiety, they have less chance of suffering from high blood pressure.
  • Improved relationships: TM meditators spontaneously radiate a purifying and nourishing influence of positivity and harmony, which improves their relationship with others in society.
  • Increased energy: With better health and mental state, TM practitioners are always full of energy.
  • Reduced insomnia: Being relieved of stress and anxiety, followers of TM experience a better and healthier sleep pattern.
  • Reversal of biological ageing: Those practising TM, on an average, are biologically 5 to 12 years younger.
  • Increased happiness: Meditators have warmer interpersonal relationships, less anxiety, increased self-esteem and self-confidence, increased problem-solving ability and greater creativity, all of which together bring more happiness in their life.

TM has helped many Japanese companies: More than 10,000 business people in Japan have learnt the TM technique. After the TM programme was conducted at Japan's Sumitomo Heavy Industries, the employees showed a marked difference.
