About the event
Do you want to learn a simple, natural and effortless technique to help you achieve inner peace, happiness and wellness?
If yes, you can join us for a free introductory talk on Transcendental Meditation at Tapovan in Rishikesh.
Transcendental meditation ™ is a form of meditation that involves silently repeating a mantra in your mind for about 20 minutes twice a day. It does not require any concentration, focus or control of thoughts. It allows your mind to settle down to a pure awareness, where you experience the source of your creativity, intelligence and bliss.
In India, TM has been practised for thousands of years and is rooted in the ancient Vedic tradition. It was popularized in the West by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who taught it to millions worldwide, including celebrities like the Beatles, who visited his ashram in Rishikesh in 1968. The Beatles' visit to Rishikesh was a landmark event that brought global attention to TM and Indian spirituality. It also inspired some of their most famous songs, such as Across the Universe, Dear Prudence and Sexy Sadie.
Here are some benefits of practising TM Technique:
- TM can reduce stress, anxiety and depression by allowing your mind to settle into pure awareness.
- TM can lower blood pressure and improve heart health by decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the fight-or-flight response.
- TM can enhance brain function and cognitive performance by increasing blood flow to the brain, improving neural connectivity and synchrony, and boosting creativity, learning ability and memory.
- TM can improve sleep quality and quantity by promoting relaxation and reducing insomnia.
- TM can increase happiness and well-being by stimulating the release of endorphins, serotonin and other neurotransmitters associated with positive emotions.
- TM can foster a greater sense of purpose and connection to self and others by expanding your consciousness and awareness beyond the boundaries of your ego.
Rishikesh is known as the yoga capital of the world and the gateway to the Himalayas. It is a sacred place where many sages, saints and seekers have meditated and attained enlightenment. It is also a vibrant and colourful city that offers a variety of attractions, such as temples, ashrams, markets, cafes, rafting, trekking and more.
Attending this event in Rishikesh will give you a fantastic opportunity to connect with TM and India's rich cultural and spiritual heritage. You will also learn about the scientific evidence and health benefits of TM, such as reducing stress, anxiety, depression, blood pressure, insomnia and ageing while enhancing happiness, creativity, learning ability and brain function.

Agenda for Day
Introduction to Transcendental Meditation
Scientific Research on TM Technique
What is Transcendental Meditation?Transcendental Meditation is a highly beneficial form of meditation that has gained immense popularity in the current times because of its simplicity to practise and effectiveness on the body and mind. Founded in the 1950s by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ji, transcendental meditation allows one to reach the deepest parts of their mind. It is different from other forms of meditation as it is effortless and automatic - it uses the natural tendency of the mind rather than controlling the thoughts. You can learn this technique at our many meditation centres in India.
What happens when you meditate?The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful state of your own awareness. It is completely different from other meditation techniques as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".
What is TM's Value in Daily Life?Stress and anxiety are harmful to health, happiness, creativity and productivity. Hundreds of published research studies on TM verify its effectiveness for reducing stress, enhancing brain function, strengthening immunity and much more.
What is the TM Technique?Transcendental Meditation employs the use of a special sound with a life supporting value, to gradually quieten the mind, bringing it to subtler and subtler states of consciousness till the source of thought is reached. In this state, the mind is in 'restful awareness' - calm, devoid of thoughts, yet awake.
Transcendental Meditation opens the awareness to the infinite reservoir of energy, creativity, and intelligence that lies
deep within everyone
