How can I experience transcendental MEDITATION?

I’m a beginner, and I would really like to learn how to meditate with simple instructions…thanks!


  1. if you find out without out going to a “yogi” class and paying 700.00 let me know…they say there is no book written on it you have to take the class…ive been looking for years

  2. Read Herbert Benson’s The Relaxation Response. He tells all the secrets and only charges you the price of the book, without the hocus pocus.

  3. There are Certified TM Teachers all over the US who are dedicated to finding loans, grants, scholarships to enable everyone to learn The Transcendental Meditation Technique regardless of their financial situation. Call the Toll Free number 888-LEARNTM on the website TM.org and you will find a TM teacher near you.
    The TM Organization is a non-profit (5013c) organization and teaches The Transcendental Meditation Technique (TM.org) in many extremely poor countries around the world, as well as to people in need in the US
    Currently there are 348 published, peer-reviewed studies validating the benefits of The TM and TM-Sidhi programs. These include 32 Random Controlled Trials, (a drug company only needs two of these with “positive” outcomes to get their drug with negative side effects to market!) and 6 Meta-Analysis which compared TM to any other mental technique that has published research. For example TM was found to be twice as effective in reducing anxiety as any other technique with published research and if only rigorous research was considered, TM was found to be 3 – 4 times as effective.
    Personal instruction: the key to success.
    Maharishi, the founder of the TM program, spent over 50 years elucidating the principles behind the Transcendental Meditation technique, always emphasizing the need for personal, one-on-one instruction:
    “By necessity, the practice of Transcendental Meditation is imparted by personal instruction. It cannot be done through a book [or CD or online training] because it not only involves telling an aspirant how to experience the subtle states of thinking, but an even greater responsibility lies in finding out what the aspirant experiences when he proceeds on that path… The experiences on the path of Transcendental Meditation are very subtle… It takes a while for the beginner to be able to pinpoint his experiences of the subtle state of thought. The practice of Transcendental Meditation must always be given by the expert teachers of Transcendental Meditation who have been properly trained to give it and who have been trained to check the experiences.
    “The checking of experiences is a vital point in the practice of Transcendental Meditation. Again, it cannot be done through books…by nature it is delicate and therefore highly technical. But under personal instruction and guidance the way is smooth and easy.“ [Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, The Science of Being and Art of Living (New York: Plume/Penguine Group, 1963/2001), p. 35-36]
    The process of systematic “effortless transcending” is simple and easy, but also very, very delicate; so delicate that it was lost to society, East and West, for thousands of years simply because of misunderstanding and inadequate teaching methods
    Maharishi revived correct practice of this technique and structured a systematic, standardized course of personal instruction to ensure that everyone everywhere can gain maximum benefit from meditation. Learning TM from a properly trained teacher was the best decision I ever made. Good luck to you
