| Stress is an ugly word in
today's world, staying alert is the thing.
Meditation (TM) is the latest 'beat the stress' therapy in reckoning.
TM is a natural technique, which does not require too much time to
learn or practice. It gives the body rest, expands the capacity of
the mind, normalises blood pressure, reduces incidence of heart disease,
facilitates better sleep, increases energy levels and IQ. The difference
between TM and other meditation techniques is that it does not involve
great concentration or contemplation.

in the year 1957 in Chennai. Maharishi is the disciple of Swami
Bramhananda Saraswati, of Jotir Math Badrikashram, Himalayas.
TM has been scientifically verified by more than 500 independent studies
done in 140 countries and is theoretically named the Maharishi
Technology of Unified Field or the Science of Creative Intelligence.
