The article explores how the Transcendental Meditation technique is different from simple relaxation and other types of meditation. 'We all have some idea of how to relax,' the writer asks. 'Is the practice of Transcendental Meditation something more?'

'The key to the uniqueness of this particular practice is spelled out in its name,' she writes: 'Transcendental Meditation. It allows you to transcend, to go beyond the limitations and boundaries of thought or objects of sensory perception. During the practice, your mind naturally, effortlessly, and systematically settles down from its active surface level to more and more settled states of thought.

'But the inward process doesn't stop at even the most refined state of thought. It goes beyond the finest value of the thinking process. Your mind transcends thought and experiences a silent, and yet wakeful, state of restful alertness. While your body enjoys a deep state of rest, scientifically shown to be more than twice as deep as that of deep sleep, your mind is fully awake and alert, basking in its own pure, inner nature and poised for dynamic, successful activity following the practice.'

The writer goes on to describe some of the many benefits of transcending, documented by extensive scientific research, and the differences between Transcendental Meditation and other techniques including mindfulness meditation.
