What is Transcendental Meditation (TM) ?
It’s a new technique of meditation which is silent in nature and is mantra based, developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
How is TM different from other forms of meditation?
Other forms of meditation seek to train your mind in such a way that you focus on your presence, emotions and sensations.
For example: Focusing on your Breath.
While Transcendental Meditation focuses on beyond thoughts and doesn’t involve any kind of consistent concentration.
A Ph.D. student explains ,”the cerebral areas play an important role in modulation of your inner states and the changes between different cerebral areas are linked to your anxiety level.”
Mantra is repeated in the meditation session in TM which helps the mind to settle down.
