What is Transcendental Meditation?
Transcendental Meditation as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, is a simple, natural technique practised for 20 minutes morning and evening, while sitting comfortably with eyes closed.
During Transcendental Meditation the mind effortlessly transcends mental activity and experiences pure consciousness at the source
of thought, while the body experiences a unique state of restfulness.
Stress, which hinders creative thinking and dynamic activity is naturally dissolved – resulting in better health, more happiness and success. Transcendental Meditation unfolds the full potential of life.Read More

"Transcendental Meditation at a young age could prevent future cardiovascular disease"
A new research review paper on the effects of the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique on the prevention and treatment of heart disease among youth and adults provides the hard evidence needed to include such evidence-based alternative approaches into government-sponsored health programmes aimed at preventing and treating cardiovascular disease.
The paper, "Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease in Adolescents and Adults through the Transcendental Meditation Program: A Research Review Update" is published in Current Hypertension Reviews, 2012, Vol. 8, No. 3.
In teenagers, Transcendental Meditation has been found to reduce blood pressure, improve heart structure and improve school behaviour. According to the paper, the technique has been shown to be free from negative side-effects.
"Adding Transcendental Meditation at a young age could prevent future cardiovascular disease and save many lives, not to mention reduce the national medical bill by billions of dollars." says Dr Vernon Barnes, lead author and research scientist at Georgia Health Sciences University, in Augusta, USA.
This model shows how regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation Program may reduce chronic stress, which in turn reduces CVD risk factors and improves stress reactivity, thereby decreasing cardiovascular disease, and consequential morbidity and mortality.
