The Transcendental Meditation technique deepens our ability to appreciate others, providing the foundation for more nourishing relationships.
Benefits for Relationships
The Transcendental Meditation technique helps us feel better about ourselves, more calm and confident inside, with less anxiety, frustration, and anger. We’re more able to appreciate others, be tolerant and harmonious, have a bigger perspective on life, and enjoy more fulfilling friendships.
“Our family is vital, healthy, and happy. The Transcendental Meditation technique gives us an easy way to tap into the inner reservoir of energy and happiness.”
What is the basis for ideal relationships? Maharishi points out that it is the principle of giving. When two people come together with the intention only to receive, then neither one gives nor receives. But when two people meet with the intention to give freely, then both give and receive the maximum.
But we can only give from what we have. The Transcendental Meditation technique provides the foundation for more nourishing relationships by dissolving stress and broadening our awareness, allowing us to give more appreciation and love to family and friends.
In the book Science of Being and Art of Living, Maharishi writes, “Really good social behavior between people will only be possible when their awareness is broadened, when they are able to see the whole situation, to understand each other more thoroughly, to be aware of each other’s need and attempt to fulfill that need. This naturally necessitates a fully developed consciousness, a right sense of judgment, and all the qualities that only a strong and clear mind possesses.”
Scientific research verifies that people who practice the Transcendental Meditation technique experience less anger and stress, less anxiety and depression. They naturally express greater tolerance and patience, harmony, and happiness. They enjoy life more.
What Meditators Say
“My husband and I started meditating over thirty years ago. It was the best thing either of us ever did, aside from getting married to each other in the first place. We can give freely to each other because of the fullness we experience inside. Nothing is a sacrifice when you have that deep silence within.”
—Anne T. Henderson, education policy consultant
“About 10 years ago my career as a builder was at a low point. Too much stress! I learned TM and found that my creativity improved and my tolerance and patience for others expanded dramatically. Best of all, my love for building homes for families came back full force.”
—Randall S. Billings, construction project manager
“I raised three children of my own and often cared for one or two others. I found that the rejuvenation I gained from my afternoon meditation allowed me to deal with the demands of late afternoon, dinner, and bedtime with the same energy and ease that I felt in the beginning of the day. Children who came to play at our house would tell their parents that that they, too, should learn the TM technique.”
