Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a very natural procedure of experiencing the finer state of the thinking process and to arrive at the source of thought, which is the pure field of creative intelligence; pure awareness, unbounded awareness is at the source of thought. And through the practice of Transcendental Meditation, the awareness reaches the source of thought. One feels relaxed, one feels happy inside. The bodies anxieties disappear. Transcendental Meditation is a practice for 15 to 20 minutes morning and evening; and everyone feels fresh throughout the day; more vital more energetic. So Transcendental Meditation is a procedure for enrichment of life, for betterment of life, for more success and more progress and more joy of life.
Which is the technique used to teach Meditation?
The technique is taught in seven stages. A man is told how much physically he'll become better, mentally he'll become better. His behavior will improve. All this anger and anxieties, they will disappear. So a man is told in the beginning what benefits he gets. And then he's told how reliable is the practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM). For the last fifteen years I've been teaching throughout the world. Seven, eight hundred thousand people now are practicing Transcendental Meditation in different countries.So its a reliable thing. People should know that it is something which is reliable, something which is simple; everyone can do it, and the effects are great. And when they know this, they want to practice it.
