Transcendence is Easy!
Transcendental Meditation helps you get transcendence.
Its called transcending.
Harvard Medical School researcher Keith Wallace described it as a “wakeful hypo-metabolic state.” His groundbreaking findings were originally published in an astonishing Scientific American article.
Here you can see that sleeping is more restful than dreaming. And waking is more alert than sleeping or dreaming. Transcending is a unique state of consciousness. It is quite different from either sleeping, dreaming or waking.
You are actually more alert than when you are awake but more relaxed than during sleep. How’s that for a paradox?
Transcendence is a state of restful alertness. Maharishi calls this the “simplest state of awareness.”
Its easy to learn and enjoyable to practice.
Its a beautiful thing! And the benefits of transcendence are numberless.
Many years ago, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi challenged scientists to conduct research on TM’s effects on the mind and body. One of the first people to take up Maharishi’s challenge was Dr. Keith Wallace who was then a doctoral student at the University of California, Los Angeles. His pioneering research confirmed that during Transcendental Meditation practice individuals experience a fourth major state of consciousness, a unique state of restful alertness, physiologically distinct from the states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping.
This initial research, which was first published in the journal Science in 1970 and later in Scientific American in 1972, stimulated an avalanche of scientific studies in the subsequent years documenting the holistic and profound effects of the Transcendental Meditation technique for mind, body, behavior, and society. Due largely to this research, the study of consciousness has become a topic of increasing interest to researchers around the world.
“This is the time when objective, science-based progress in the world is being enriched by the possibility of total development of human life on earth.”
—Maharishi, Life Supported by Natural Law, 1986, p. 35
