Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation® (TM) is practised for fifteen to twenty minutes twice a day sitting comfortably in a chair with eyes closed. The simple, natural, TM technique is only taught by a certified TM teacher. An authentic TM teacher is someone who has successfully completed an intensive 5-month in-residence training, and who maintains his or her certification through ongoing professional courses. This form of meditation allows your body to settle into a state of profound rest and relaxation and your mind to achieve a state of inner peace. It is an effortless technique for “recharging your mind and body” and creating a brighter, more positive state of mind. Hundreds of published research studies have found that TM is highly effective in reducing stress and anxiety, improving cardiovascular health, and creating clearer, more effective thinking for greater happiness and success in life.

David Lynch Foundation


I started Transcendental Meditation in 1973 and have not missed a single meditation ever since. Twice a day, every day. It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within. This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness”—it is a treasury. And this level of life is deep within us all.

But I had no idea how powerful and profound this technique could be until I saw firsthand how it was being practiced by young children in inner-city schools, veterans who suffer the living hell of post-traumatic stress disorder and women and girls who are victims of terrible violence.

TM is, in a word, life changing for the good.

In 2005, we started the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace to ensure that every child anywhere in the world who wanted to learn to meditate could do so. Now, the Foundation is actively teaching TM to adults and children in countries everywhere.

How are we able to do it? Because of the generosity of foundations and philanthropists and everyday people who want to ease the suffering of others—and who want to help create a better world.

If you don’t already meditate, take my advice: Start. It will be the best decision you ever make.

Maharishi Vedic Science and Technology

Maharishi Vedic Science and TechnologySM is the science and technology of consciousness. It has its source in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. The term “Vedic” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Veda,” which means “knowledge” — knowledge of the field of pure intelligence that is the source of all the diverse fields of knowledge.

Over time the holistic value of Vedic Science became fragmented and for real practical purposes, ineffective and thus, in recent times, neglected. Maharishi Vedic Science and Technology is the complete revival of ancient Vedic Science. This has been achieved over the past fifty years through the work of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Vedic scholar and foremost scientist in the field of consciousness. Maharishi collaborated with leading Western scientists and leading Vedic experts in a monumental re-investigation of the Veda. This knowledge has now been restored to its completeness and practical effectiveness and thoroughly integrated with all our modern scientific disciplines. Maharishi Vedic Science is offered globally as the total knowledge of natural law for our scientific age. A very large body of scientific research on the effects of its practical programmes (which include the Transcendental Meditation programme and its advanced techniques) confirm that these programmes positively enhance all aspects of life, physiological, psychological, sociological, and ecological.
