in three important ways:
1. Effortless transcending
The TM technique involves no concentration, contemplation or control of your mind. It is effortless and enjoyable and can be practiced just sitting comfortably.
The technique allows your mind to effortlessly transcend, to settle inward to the source of thought—a natural state of pure awareness and restful alertness. This automatic self-transcending is a distuinging feature of the TM technique.
3. Standardized for effectiveness
Learning meditation from a certified TM teacher ensures consistent results. With many forms of meditation, the nature and quality of instruction can vary widely from teacher to teacher. While the process of learning the TM technique is standardized, it is also a personalized process in which the student progresses step-by-step at their own pace. To maintain the highest standard of teaching, TM instructors have undergone rigorous training, have thousands of hours of experience, and attend regular TM teacher re-certification.
