Overview

With the ever growing number of people engaging in daily meditation, it is necessary to have easy-to-follow meditation techniques which anybody can use in order to get in touch with one‟s inner-being. Likewise, there is a growing need for simple techniques among the ordinary people which they could readily use to just simply relax their mind and body as they face the grueling and monotonous daily tasks of life.
The world is not bereft of good meditation techniques. Anyone simply has to browse the net and look for the ideal technique which would readily suits one‟s meditation needs. One of these techniques is transcendental meditation which is one of the most popular meditation techniques in use right now throughout the world. This technique can be readily practiced daily by those who want to get in touch with the universal transcendental consciousness.
The name of the technique is derived from the word “transcendent” which is derived from the latin word “transcendere” which means to climb across. Transcendent in our modern idiom would simply mean “that which goes beyond.” Thus, etymologically, transcendental meditation means that the technique is designed to enable the mind to climb across or to go beyond its limits, and attune itself to the transcendent consciousness.
The first chapter of this book deals with the description of transcendental meditation. Likewise, the succeeding chapters discuss the benefits and step-by-step procedures on how to go about with transcendental meditation. Additionally, in the fourth and last chapters, the usefulness of transcendental meditation on improving works and its effectiveness in enabling a person to conquer doubts and fear will be further discussed.
Chapter 1:
What Is Transcendental
Meditation?
Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a form of meditation which involves the use of a particular form of mantra during the meditation process, and the use of these meditation mantras embodies the transcendental meditation technique. This meditation technique engenders a world-wild organization which is referred to as the Transcendental Meditation Movement. The movement originated from India in the 1950s and was founded by the well-respected Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had engaged in a series of world tours spanning the years 1958 to 1965 to popularize the use of Transcendental Meditation. Moreover, the years from 1958 to 1965 were used by Maharishi to teach thousands of people.
His teachings were both expressed in religious and spiritual terms. The popularity of TM gained momentum in the 1960s and 1970s as some well-known personalities openly engaged in the practice of TM owing to the fact that Maharishi tried to give the method a more scientific twist in its presentation. In 1965, the Transcendental Meditation Technique has been included in some chosen institutional programs including schools, universities and established institutions. Moreover, some social programs for veterans, homeless and prison inmates have incorporated the meditation in their programs giving TM a wider popularity among these institutions.
The Transcendental Meditation Technique makes use of a mantra (sound) which is chanted or sounded during the meditation process. The technique is very simple and can naturally be practiced for 15 to 20 minutes twice daily. The method enables the
mind to transcend its limited confines and experience transcendental consciousness or pure awareness. During the practice of Transcendental Meditation, the mind transcends all its mental activities and consequently experiences a very unique state of relaxation and restfulness.
The Adherents of Transcendental Meditation Movement maintain that the method enables a person to relax and reduce stress which will eventually lead to self-development. The ever-growing popularity of Transcendental Meditation makes it one of the most researched techniques of meditation. In fact, there are a number of reviews about these researches which range from clinically significant to inconclusive.
Why is transcendental Meditation different from other techniques?
The Transcendental Meditation Technique does not involve any concentration, contemplation or any deliberate control of the mind. It just follows the natural flow of the mind. It is a natural method which goes with the universal sound of the cosmos. For this reason, it is enjoyable and effortless. Likewise, the practice of this kind of meditation can be readily done in any comfortable chair inside your room or favorite place to meditate.
Transcendental Meditation is a very basic program for the mind. It is an effortless technique because it is natural and it leads the
mind to its boundless essence. Through constant practice of Transcendental Meditation, the potential of the mind readily unfolds, in which the different mental possibilities become readily available
