The Happy Benefits of Transcendental Meditation

Dealing with stress is a tall order, there have been many types of research on stress management and relaxation techniques but these practices often ask a lot of time and energy of you which is practically unattainable in the era we’re living in. People are always on-the-go and they often find themselves stuck in this situation with nothing working out in their favour. Some have issues with anger, some struggle with anxiety and insomnia, while many others are jammed between emotional distresses like tension, jealousy and depression. If any of this gets to you then there are chances you must have tried seeking help and looking for something recreational that can bring contentment to your life. Meditation has been practiced over thousands of years and is believed to produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind giving you a restful awareness. We believe happiness lies within you and there’s a part of you that already exists which you have probably never opened. During this brawl of your mind and inner consciousness, mediation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit your emotional well-being and also your surroundings. In an International conference, His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi said “just as you pour water on the mountain and it naturally slides down, the technique of Transcendental Meditation is such that it trickles down to experience the finer fields of mental activity and comes to source of this mental activity from where the thoughts begin.” Vasudha Rai, a wellness columnist at Vogue India, who likes to try different breathing techniques, meditation schools, or traditional rituals as a part of her wellness research learnt the TM technique at our Gurugram centre and says “I have missed a meditation once in a while, but on most days for the last two months, I’ve been meditating twice a day. Whether I’ve been distracted, disturbed or completely peaceful, I feel exactly the same after TM—refreshed and ready for the rest of the day.”
