"Deep within the mind of every human being is a field of pure wakefulness, a field of lively silence. This is the quiet, inner source of energy, creativity, and intelligence within everyone. But most of us don't notice it because we are constantly wrapped up in the noisy activity of our world.

"The TM technique allows anyone to effortlessly access this inner field of restful alertness. This is a soothing and healing experience, as shown by more than 600 scientific studies published in top medical journals that show improvement in almost every area of life through practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique."
