How Does Transcendental Meditation work?
Meditation is usually understood as a subtle practice of building a deep connection with self and the surroundings. Transcendental Meditation is a practice that has roots way back in history; it is an effective way to relieve stress and achieve enhanced brain function, health, happiness, calmness, emotional stability and harmony in relationships. Now you must be wondering what exactly Transcendent Meditation is? Here’s a brief look at it. Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a technique to access the subtler states of mental awareness till the source of thought is reached. This state of pure awareness is full of infinite bliss, intelligence and creativity. Accessing this state helps confer many benefits to the mind, body, behaviour and peace in society. It aids in expanding one’s cognitive functions to achieve a state of “calm”. It’s an effortless, natural, scientifically verified practice which should be done twice a day for twenty minutes with closed eyes. What exactly is the Transcendental Meditation technique? The technique is simple and can be practiced by anyone, but it must be learned from a qualified TM teacher as part of a systematic, consecutive five day course that takes 1.5 to 2 hours each day.
