who practice Transcendental Meditation
“I started Transcendental Meditation in 1973 and have not missed a single meditation ever since. Twice a day, every day. It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within. And this level of life – it is a treasury – is deep within us all.”
“Transcendental Meditation is the single most important reason for any success
I have had in my life.”
“TM was a great gift that Maharishi has given us. It came during a period at the end of the 60s when we were looking for something that could bring us more stability, and it was a lifelong gift. It’s something you can call on at any time.”
“TM really did help me at a time when I really needed some help.
It’s something that everyone should know about or have access to.”
“When I feel tired, tense, scared or depressed, I meditate (TM). It clears my mind, and makes me feel more relaxed and happier. I have shared these experiences with my friends and I recommend it to all of them.”
“Nothing has ever opened my eyes like Transcendental Meditation has. It makes me calm and happy, and, well, it gives me some peace and quiet in what’s a pretty chaotic life.”
George Lucas learnt TM in the 1970’s as a student at the University of Southern California,
and is reportedly still practicing it daily.
“I am a great supporter of Transcendental Meditation. I have been using it for almost 40 years.
I think that it is a great tool for anyone to utilize as tool for stress. There are enough studies out there that show that Transcendental Meditation is something that can benefit everybody. I think that it is a great system to use in life in general – otherwise why would I have been doing it all these years.”
“Now I have answers to that question ‘What else do you do in your spare time?’ I didn’t have anything other than ‘wait for a dental appointment’. Now I can say ‘Actually, I took up that classic version of Transcendental Meditation.'”
“TM has been very valuable to me. And I recommend it highly!”
“I can’t say enough about Transcendental Meditation. Stillness, true stillness, of both mind and body, is a gift.
TM taught me how to access that stillness and open that gift every single day.”
“I like to meditate, Transcendental Meditation usually. I took it up in my early 20s and I learned the benefits.
I try to do it every day.”
“I have come to rely on Transcendental Meditation to help me navigate my wonderfully challenging, at times stress-inducing life.”
“TM is so simple to learn, it’s so simple to practice. Yet the amount of restoration that comes to you – the benefit across your life – well, it changes everything.”
“I’d say a little over a year ago I started doing TM and that’s really changed everything. Starting your day off with that and ending with that is pretty powerful. Twenty minutes, you just notice the difference. When I get lazy and don’t get it in, I can feel a difference. I do it first thing when I wake up.”
“Transcendental Meditation is an incredible way of centering myself, of calming myself, and really getting perspective on where I am. After I did the first week of TM, where I did it twice a day, from that moment on I’ve never been that frazzled or that tired ever again. It was like it sort of restored my body on such a deep level. I feel much less panicked and anxious and more calm about things. But I also feel deeply centered and rested.”
“TM is the only meditation where after 20 minutes I regret that it is over.
It is the only time that I have that stillness.
It gives me this peaceful feeling. I just love it so much.”
“(With TM) people sleep better; people have better relationships; people interact with other people better.
I am one-thousand percent better when I do it.”
“TM influences things that we didn’t think were changeable.
TM is the most important health practice I have adopted.”
“I’ve been doing Transcendental Meditation for over 40 years. Doing TM will help you to take things more easy.
Do you know how I was describing TM to somebody? It’s like having, you know, your phone has a charger, right? It’s like having a charger for your whole body and mind. That’s what Transcendental Meditation is!”
“One of the things that impressed me so much about TM when I finally learned it was its simplicity. It’s a simple practice that calms the mind, and the thing that won me over about Transcendental Meditation was its effectiveness. Nothing else helped me quiet my mind and go to a calm, centered place. The thing that makes it effective is you don’t have to do all that much, and, as a profoundly lazy person, I appreciate that.”
“One of the things – and this comes from someone who was highly self-critical and a type-A personality – that has changed my life is practicing TM. The simple act of making my brain shut off for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night may not seem like much, but what ends up happening, besides creating space in your day, is your awake posture begins to replicate your meditative posture.”
“I have been practicing TM since my early 20s and I must say that words do not express enough the significance of its gifts in my life. Meditation has brought me clarity and peace through my most challenging times and it has helped me to know myself and to discover my purpose. No matter how challenging the lessons of life, we always have a place where we can go to find peace that’s within ourselves.”
“Transcendental Meditation has helped a lot in that now when I’m on a plane I meditate, and that makes me calm. Because when you’re constantly at airports and planes, it can be very stressful somehow.
Transcendental Meditation just makes me calm about that. The frustration is gone.”
“For me, practicing TM is one of the most direct ways to reconnect with oneself.”
