Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a simple, natural, effortless and unique scientifically validated Technique of Meditation, which settles the mind to experience and unite with the state of Pure Consciousness and naturally arrives at the source of thought, the settled state of mind-Transcendental Consciousness-pure consciousness, self-referral consciousness, which is the source of all creative processes.

TM provides deep rest to the nervous system, expands the conscious capacity of the mind, spontaneously unfolds the full potential of the individual, and enriches all aspects of daily life. During Transcendental Meditation the individual's awareness settles down and experiences a unique state of restful alertness. As the body becomes deeply relaxed, the mind transcends all mental activity to experience the simplest form of awareness-Transcendental Consciousness-where consciousness is open to itself. This is the self-referral state of consciousness.

This process can be likened to a river, which naturally and effortlessly flows on to the ocean and gains the status of the ocean. TM is practiced sitting comfortably for 15-20 minutes twice daily and can be easily learned by people of all levels of intelligence, of all ages, nationality, cultures, religions, and educational backgrounds. Over seven million people from all walks of life have learnt TM and experiencing its immense benefits in their personal and professional life.

The experience of Transcendental Consciousness develops the individual's latent creative potential, while dissolving accumulated stress and fatigue during the practice. This experience enlivens within one's awareness creativity, dynamism, orderliness, and organizing power, which results in increasing effectiveness and success in daily life.


The Transcendental Meditation Programme (the practical aspect of Maharishi's Vedic Science) provides direct experience of the field of pure Creative Intelligence, and offers complete understanding of its nature, development, range, and application. All the intelligence we display in our life comes from our thoughts, and thought comes from somewhere deep inside.


Like any other science, Maharishi's Vedic Science, the Science of Consciousness, has both aspects- practical (to provide experience) and theoretical (to provide understanding). Maharishi's Vedic Science provides systematic knowledge of the field of pure Creative Intelligence-the total potential of knowledge and its infinite organizing power-the source of all knowledge, power, and bliss-the total potential of Natural Law, which unfolds the latent creative genius in everyone.


Support of Natural Law increases in daily life with regular practice of TM. By enlivening the total potential of intelligence-pure Creative Intelligence, Transcendental Consciousness-all action spontaneously and naturally has the support of the infinite organizing power of Natural Law. Being a systematic procedure to experience finer states of a thought and systematically arrive at the source of thought, pure consciousness, Transcendental Meditation is for skill in action. Transcendental Meditation is the technique to do less and accomplish more.

There are seven states of consciousness: waking state of consciousness, dreaming state of consciousness, sleeping state of consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness. Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness. By experiencing the fourth state of consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness, through Transcendental Meditation, higher states of consciousness unfold until enlightenment-Unity Consciousness-the full awakening of consciousness dawns, in which one's total creative potential supports success in every aspect of life.


All our activity, thinking, and feeling depend upon the condition of the nervous system. When we feel rested and fresh, all activity seems to be easier and more creative, while on days when we are strained, this tired mood is expressed in everything we do. The surface condition of tiredness we call fatigue; the deeper aspect of tiredness may be called stress. Transcendental Meditation provides profound physiological rest and normalization of the nervous system.

Anyone can achieve freedom from fatigue and deep stress through the practice of Transcendental Meditation. Research in the field of physiology has shown that mental activity has a corresponding physiological activity. The mind is directly connected with the physical nervous system.

It has been scientifically confirmed that life is always directed toward more and more-more success and more fulfillment. It is the natural tendency of the mind to move toward greater happiness. Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation is the technology for everyone to become more creative, more energetic, and happier within themselves. Transcendental Meditation is the technology to unfold the inner Creative Intelligence of everyone.

About 700 scientific studies on the Transcendental Meditation Programme have been conducted during the past five and half decades by researchers at more than 250 independent research institutions in 32 countries. These include Harvard Medical School; Princeton University; Stanford Medical School; University of Chicago; University of Michigan Medical School; University of California at Berkeley; University of California at Los Angeles; York University, Canada; University of Edinburgh, Scotland; University of Lund, Sweden; University of Groningen, The Netherlands; University of New South Wales, Australia; Institute de la Rochefoucauld, France; National Institute of Industrial Health, Japan; and Moscow Brain Research Institute of the Academy of Medical Sciences, Russia.


Studies have been published in many major scientific journals, including Science, Lancet, Scientific American, American Journal of Physiology, International Journal of Neuroscience, Experimental Neurology, Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology, Psychosomatic Medicine, Canadian Medical Association Journal, American Psychologist, British Journal of Educational Psychology, Journal of Counseling Psychology, The Journal of Mind and Behavior, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Perceptual and Motor Skills, Criminal Justice and Behavior, Journal of Crime and Justice, Proceedings of the Endocrine Society, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, and Social Indicators Research.

Many studies have been presented at professional scientific conferences, and others have been part of doctoral dissertations prepared under the guidance of thesis committees at leading universities. Much of the research has been gathered together in seven volumes (over 5,000 pages) of Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Siddhi Programme-Collected Papers.


These studies have validated the profound benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for the individual and for every area of society, including health, education, business, industry, rehabilitation, defence, agriculture, and government.

Transcendental Meditation unfolds the creative genius of the self-referral state of intelligence-the home of all the Laws of Nature-and inspires the Laws of Nature to uphold all thought, speech, and action.

Meditating individuals not only create harmony in society through their activity but also radiate harmony and order in the collective consciousness of the society and for the whole world from the level of Unified field of all the Laws of Nature through field effect having named for its influence as "Maharishi Effect".
