Overview

Searching for a meditation technique? Learn about the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique in this lively introduction by Robert Roth. More than five million people of all ages, cultures, and religions have learned this simple, natural technique and use it daily to reduce stress, improve their health, unfold their full potential and radiate peace. The book explains the TM technique, an easily-learned mental technique practiced for 20 minutes twice daily which was introduced to the US in 1959 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Roth writes:
"Maharishi's message then was simple and direct, and it's the same today. Life is bliss. Man is born to enjoy. Within everyone is an unlimited reservoir of energy, intelligence, and happiness. Transcendental Meditation is a simple, effortless procedure to experience it."
The book describes the experience of restful alertness during the TM technique. The mind settles down effortlessly to a silent, yet fully awake, state of awareness while the body gains a profound state of rest. The author explores the holistic benefits arising from this experience using fascinating anecdotes from meditators as well as selected research from the over 600 studies on the technique. He presents a convincing argument for how the TM technique can solve the challenging problems of spiraling health costs, job stress, rising crime and world peace.
"Only a new seed can yield a new crop. Only new knowledge, new principles, and new programs can put an end to conflict, sickness, and suffering, and prevent such problems from arising in the future. Only new knowledge can create a healthy, prosperous, harmonious society and a peaceful world."
-- Maharishi
Included in the book are impressive results from meta-analyses comparing different meditation and relaxation techniques showing that the TM technique is the most effective technique for reducing anxiety, decreasing substance abuse, increasing self-actualization and improving psychological health. The book prepares readers for personalized instruction in the TM technique by a trained teacher at TM Centers located throughout the world.

The book goes over data and personal stories told by people who use TM. Even though there is a chapter on the method of TM, the chapter simply tells you to find a TM instructor in your area! Total waste of money and time!

A testimonial about the power of TM. I had already been sold on TM's efficacy, and thus was quite disappointed in the statement that TM could only be taught through TM Instructors (at significant cost), and not by reading. I was expecting a how-to book.
