"It is possible for everyone to go deep within and saturate their mind with inner happiness, with that unlimited pure intelligence that dwells at the source of thought." – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Experience the inner Self
When we practise Transcendental Meditation we experience a state where the mind is completely silent yet wide awake. "Transcend" means "go beyond". When the mind has gone beyond all activity, this is an experience of the inner Self, which is perfect peace, Transcendental Consciousness.
The mind is like the ocean - constantly in motion on the surface, but silent and immensely powerful at its depths. Transcendental Meditation involves settling without any effort to the silent depths of the ocean – becoming recharged by that unbounded state of pure consciousness. As the mind quietens down, the breathing becomes very soft and the muscles deeply relaxed. The mind settles inward, beyond thought, to the most silent, peaceful level of consciousness – your innermost self.
