The TM technique allows your mind to naturally transcend, or easily settle inward, to quieter and quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness.
No problem at all. Unlike other forms of meditation, the TM technique involves no concentration, no control of the mind, no contemplation, no monitoring of thoughts. It is completely effortless.
The TM technique's effectiveness is the same whether you believe it will work or are completely skeptical. That's because it automatically and effortlessly allows your active thinking mind to settle down to a state of deep inner calm.
In mindfulness meditation you monitor your thoughts, feelings, breathing, and bodily sensations, without judging them. This keeps your mind engaged on the active level of thinking, as do many other forms of meditation.
What we don’t often realize is that, beneath the active surface, the mind already has a deep level of calm, like the settled depth of the ocean beneath the waves. The Transcendental Meditation technique facilitates transcending – effortlessly opening our awareness to this deeper, peaceful level of the mind.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, whose life's work was to revive and demystify the timeless knowledge of meditation, and verify its effectiveness through the lens of modern science, began teaching Transcendental Meditation in the 1950s.
After refining and systematizing the teaching of TM, Maharishi began a movement to make the technique available worldwide. He oversaw the training of thousands of instructors and established a non-profit foundation to preserve the authenticity of the TM technique for generations to come.
