How is Transcendental Meditation different?

The TM technique differs from other meditation techniques
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.

2. Evidence-based

Over 350 published research studies on the TM technique have documented a wide range of benefits, including reduced stress and anxiety, improved health and brain function and increased self-actualization. Other forms of meditation have been found to produce positive effects, but only TM has been found in hundreds of studies to produce this holistic range of immediate and long-term wellness benefits for mind and body—including a 48% reduction in heart attack and stroke, and significant reduction of high blood pressure. It is the only meditation technique recommended by the American Heart Association. The body of supportive research includes more than 50 randomized clinical trials and 15 major scientific reviews.

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.
