Why meditate?

People meditate for many reasons, for relaxation, to gain peace of mind, to reduce stress and to promote good health. Some people even learn it to gain enlightenment! Because of the many benefits Transcendental Meditation (TM) brings, it is now used in schools around the world, in the military, in homeless shelters and it is also practised widely in prisons. See www.davidlynchfoundation.org

The benefits to mind and body.

People often report that they feel very calm and still during meditation and that the body feels deeply relaxed. After meditation this relaxed state carries over into the work place and/or home. Over a period of time people who practise TM regularly have reported that they are able to handle stressful situations better. They also report clearer thinking. TM naturally develops mind-body coordination.

Why this meditation is different from other meditations?

Unlike many other methods of self development, the Transcendental Meditation technique is effortless and natural and is very easy to practise. It uses the very nature of the mind, which is to go in the direction of greater happiness. Concentration or contemplation are not involved in the process. The TM technique is practised and enjoyed by 5 million people worldwide.

The Science.
