Knowledge of ourselves through Transcendental Meditation
28 May 2015 - 'Though it is possible to transcend through any sense - through looking - this is usually a lucky happening and offers us only a fleeting glimpse of the truth,' says award-winning writer Sasha Kamini Parmasad. 'It is wonderful, therefore, that we have Transcendental Meditation - a reliable, systematic, effortless mental technique that gives us the daily opportunity to slip beyond our relative experience and unfold our divine nature.' She concludes that, 'as this pure consciousness, stillness, permeates our looking we begin to glimpse or sense in others, in objects of the world, something ineffable - beautiful, radiating, colorless, without taste, smell, or sound. . . . We slip beyond all our worldly experiences, knowledge of ourselves, and experience ourselves purely, incandescently, luminously.' (more)

26 May 2015 - Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, recently published the following on her Facebook page: 'So grateful to Bob Roth, the Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, for coming to The Huffington Post to teach Transcendental Meditation to our editors in our new meditation room. Love his metaphor of our minds being like the ocean's surface - full of big waves - but all of us have places of stillness and tranquility - an ocean floor - that we can tap into with meditation.' She also talks about her new book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder. (more)

1001 Benefits of Transcendence
25 May 2015 - For the past five years, Blaze Compton and colleagues have been teaching inmates in several major US state prisons to practise Transcendental Meditation. 'Just 16 weeks of transcending is enough to begin a major reordering of the brain and nervous system to a more normal style of functioning that dramatically supports pro-social thinking and behavior,' he says. Mr Compton presents an extensive collection of research articles on TM ('1001 Benefits of Transcending'), 211 research institutions that have investigated TM, and 176 medical and scientific journals that have published research on the technique.

Discovering our greatness: Part I - Enjoying our truest selves
21 May 2015 - 'We respect qualities in great persons that we ourselves value, that we ourselves hold and uphold. When we see people express great courage, compassion, creativity, generosity, or other qualities we esteem, it resonates; we feel something noble enlivened within. The seed of that quality of greatness is already within us,' writes Cynthia E. Johnson in a new essay exploring the 'superb human characteristics' exemplified in great people, and also how we can unfold our own greatness. 'This quality of being true to our deepest self, our truest, best self, is something that unfolds as we practise Transcendental Meditation,' she says. 'A sense of lightness, grace, even playfulness unfolds when we are rested, when anxiety dissolves--whether we are engaged in doing what we love, or what duty necessitates. As we grow in inner fullness, it overflows to others.' (more)

Interview: Dr Sarina Grosswald, pioneering scientist in TM research
20 May 2015 - Dr Sarina Grosswald, an expert in cognitive learning, is a leading authority on the use of Transcendental Meditation for relieving the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder and other stress-related conditions. In a recent interview Dr Grosswald describes the effects of the whole brain development produced by TM practice. 'All of our thinking expands,' she says. 'The result is that limitations that we often create for ourselves . . . whatever we create in our minds as obstacles, just tend to melt away spontaneously. When we reduce stress, it makes room for all the good things in life to expand.' (more)
