How is Transcendental Meditation different from other forms of meditation?
25 August 2015 - Considering different forms of meditation, author and Transcendental Meditation teacher Ann Purcell writes, 'I was extremely fortunate to learn Transcendental Meditation 42 years ago. The reason I like TM and have stayed with it all of these years is that it is easy, and does not require any effort. In my very first meditation, I sank to the most peaceful silence I had ever experienced.' Trying to control the mind requires effort and creates strain; the TM technique 'allows the mind to naturally settle down to quieter levels. Because those quiet levels are extremely charming, the mind will automatically stay there. . . . Such a technique effortlessly leads the mind to transcendence: inner wakefulness along with pure silence.' (more)
