Benefiting From Transcendental Meditation

Updated on December 27, 2015

Transcendental Meditation

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years by many people. However, the Transcendental Meditation has been practiced since 1958. It was introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. This is a medication technique that is performed twice daily for twenty minutes in each session. Sitting with the eyes closed, as with normal meditation, however, you are not contemplating or concentrating on any aspect.

Getting started in transcendental meditation requires a series of seven procedures. These procedures include two lectures as an introduction to transcendental meditation, an interview personally with the teacher, and an instruction session, which lasts for two hours and spans for four days consecutively. When it comes to the instruction session, you will experience a puja ceremony. In this ceremony, you, the student will obtain what is called a mantra. You will then learn the techniques you need and start practicing your meditation twice each day.

Affects of Transcendental Meditation

The goal of this type of meditation is to the put the body in a state of restful alertness. During the session, the practicer is relaxed, which means a reduction within the blood lactate, tidal volume, ventilation, and respiration. However, the integration and coherence of the person indicate that they are indeed alert, but relaxed.

    Well written hub and very informative.

    I particularly like David Lynch's work as well as Greg Braden. Both have so much wisdom and knowledge of spirituality and science that can ultimately help others.

    Thanks for this hub, it is so comforting to know that others share the same interests and methods in life.
