The achievements of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi are profound in the field of knowledge and immense in the field of action. During the past 50 years, more than five million people have learned the Transcendental Meditation technique and are rising to enlightenment through their twice-daily practice. Maharishi has trained over 40,000 teachers, opened thousands of teaching centers, and founded hundreds of schools, colleges, and universities. Maharishi Vedic science programs are being applied in private businesses, public institutions, and homes in every country.

The Beatles have famously credited Transcendental Meditation with helping them write their best music. Oprah Winfrey loves her daily practice. So does billionaire hedge fund founder Ray Dalio, as well as British comedian Russell Brand, and music mogul Russell Simmons. In fact, the list of celebrities and Fortune 500 CEOs who say Transcendental Meditation has helped them in their personal and professional lives is so long.
“TM,” is short for Transcendental Meditation, the acronym used by insiders, is the practice of sitting for 20 minutes, twice a day, repeating a personal mantra given to you by a TM teacher. The technique is based on a Vedic tradition, an ancient Indian process of enlightenment. Fifty years ago, spiritual leader Maharishi Mahesh yogi introduced the practice to the rest of the world, founding the Transcendental Meditation Program.
According to the program, TM allows your mind to settle into a state of pure awareness, known as transcendental consciousness. In this state, the body is at its most relaxed, and the brain supposedly has the greatest access to its creative energy. Devotees claim that TM gives them a creative edge, allowing them to be more focused throughout the day and access innovative ideas.
TM probably has more medical studies behind it than any other meditation practice, which is why in addition to helping reduce the effects of stress and trauma, it’s routinely hailed as a kind of cure-all for issues ranging from high blood pressure to diabetes.
Research suggests these claims aren’t overblown. One UCLA Medical School study on patients with heart disease found that those who practiced TM had lower blood pressure and improved blood glucose and insulin levels (linked to diabetes).
Several other studies have suggested that TM can actually slow the aging process and increase longevity among its practitioners. Not surprisingly, these anti-aging benefits regularly draw new converts (and Hollywood types), who stay for the peace of mind.
Scientific research shows that a few minutes of the Transcendental Meditation technique morning and evening naturally produces a wide range of practical benefits:
