  1. Hello Narza
    It is a form of meditation that can only be taught by TM teachers.
    To cut its short is requires that your teacher, who will be yours for life, gives you a sound/mantra. It will be a sound that only You have & you meditate with this twice a day for 20 mins at a time.

  2. Bg Introduction
    This is not a very difficult process. However, one must learn it from an experienced person, from one who is already in the practice. The mind is always flying to this and that, but one must always practice concentrating the mind on the form of the Supreme Lord Sri Krsna or on the sound of His name. The mind is naturally restless, going hither and thither, but it can rest in the sound vibration of Krsna. One must thus meditate on paramam purusam, the Supreme Person, and thus attain Him. The ways and the means for ultimate realization, ultimate attainment, are stated in the Bhagavad-gita, and the doors of this knowledge are open for everyone. No one is barred out. All classes of men can approach the Lord by thinking of Him, for hearing and thinking of Him is possible for everyone.

  3. Hi Narza,
    Transcendental Meditation is a technique of meditation originally introduced in the West about the year 1958. This type of meditation technique was introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and say a short period of meditation. Transcendental Meditation is recommended twice a day for only twenty minutes per session. As with other methods of meditation and practices, is a target of transcendental meditation is enlightenment. The technique claims to be able to improve a person by the person individual efforts.
    It is not difficult to learn transcendental meditation. If you are looking to escape from the whirlwind of ringing cell phones, traffic snarls and screaming kids, transcendental meditation can provide a peaceful getaway from the craziness of everyday life.
    You may be wondering what is transcendental meditation and what makes it different from other forms of meditation? One of the most exciting elements of the transcendental meditation technique is that it so simple and easy to practice. With the right focus and dedication, you can learn transcendental meditation in a matter of moments.
    Basically, during the meditation session, your body enters a deep and peaceful state of relaxation, while maintaining alertness and clarity. First, the person chooses a word or image to focus on, perhaps a religious or cultural symbol that has special meaning. As the person replays this word or image over and over, the body descends into a deeper and deeper state of restfulness. The session can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour and should take place in a calm and relaxed setting, with minimal noise and distractions.

  4. What is The TM Technique (TM.org)? It is a simple, natural, effortless procedure practiced 20 minutes twice each day
    while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.
    It’s not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. It’s
    the most widely practiced, most researched,
    and most effective method of self-development.
    What happens when you meditate?
    The Transcendental Meditation technique allows
    your mind to settle inward beyond thought to
    experience the source of thought – pure
    awareness, also known as transcendental
    consciousness, or the unified field. This is the most silent and peaceful level of consciousness – your innermost Self. In this state of restful alertness, your brain functions with significantly greater coherence and your body gains deep rest.
    There are currently 358 published peer-reviewed studies which show the exceptional benefits that people enjoy from practicing the TM Technique regularly. These include 35 Random Control Trials (RCTs) and 7 Meta-Analyses. The 7 Meta-Analyses show how TM compares to any other mental technique that is included in any published research. For example in one Meta-Anayses TM was found to be at least twice as effective as any other mental technique in reducing anxiety and if only the rigorous research is considered then TM is found to be 3 to 4 times as effective in reducing anxiety.
