The Benefits of Transcendental Meditation
The experience of the most silent and settled state of mind, Pure Consciousness, develops the total brain and eliminates accumulated stress and fatigue. This provides the basis for increased intelligence, creativity and improvements in all areas of health. When we feel happier and healthier within ourselves, then naturally our behaviour towards others and to ourselves improves. More alertness along with calmness of body and mind means that our ability to appreciate and evaluate our environment is enhanced leading to more appreciation, tolerance and life-supporting behaviour. Relationships become more harmonious as we grow in peace and fulfillment within ourselves.
Comprehensive analyses on various types of meditations have clearly shown that TM produces highly beneficial effects such as marked reductions in high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, insomnia and other stress-related disorders which are not produced by other meditation techniques.
