Transcendental Meditation
                   A Scientifically Validated Programmme

       The Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique is a simple, natural, effortless
       procedure whereby the mind easily and naturally arrives at the source of thought,
       the settled state of the mind -- Transcendental Consciousness -- pure
       consciousness, self-referral consciousness, which is the source of all creative
       processes. Transcendental meditation is practised for 1520 minutes in the morning
       and evening, while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. During this technique,
       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.

                          The experience of Transcendental Consciousness
                          develops the individual's latent creative potential while
                          dissolving accumulated stress and fatigue through the deep
                          rest gained during the practice. This experience enlivens
                          the individual's creativity, dynamism, orderliness, and
                          organising power, which result in increasing effectiveness
                          and success in daily life.

         The Transcendental Meditation technique is scientific,  requiring neither specific beliefs nor adoption of a particular lifestyle. The practice does not involve any effort or concentration. It is easy to learn and does not require any special ability. People of all ages, educational backgrounds, cultures, and religions in countries throughout the world practise the technique and enjoy its wide range of benefits.
