What is transcendental meditation?  

Transcendental meditation is a type of Mantra Meditation, but do not get it confused with Mantra meditation. Also, the goal of transcendental meditation is to go beyond the thinking process. Unlike other meditation techniques this meditation emphasises the fact that the human mind is capable of going into the tranquil state without outside effort, but only if it is given the right tools. The tools that TM uses are mantras.   

Benefits of transcendental meditation:  

It has many physical, mental, emotional and ofcourse spiritual.  

  • It assists in stress management and anxiety relief. This happens because while meditating when you concentrate on your chosen mantra the brain automatically starts functioning around its rhythm.  
  • This meditation unravels the constant stream of thoughts and patterns in our brains, eliminating all the overthinking.   
  • It also helps with depression, insomnia and treating addictions, because this meditation is not about stopping the thought. It is about accessing the inner calm by accepting and acknowledging each thought string and unwinding it.   
  • It’s especially beneficial for those with ADD, ASD and Alzheimer’s. As it helps to improve some aspects of cognition.  
  • Also, the repetition of the chosen mantra everyday trains the mind to form natural and effective neural pathways.
