TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION:
THE MAIN PRINCIPLE
TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION:
THE MAIN PRINCIPLE

When a wave of the ocean makes contact with deeper levels of water it becomes more powerful. Likewise, when the conscious mind expands to embrace deeper levels of thinking, the thought waves become more powerful.

The expanded capacity of the conscious mind increases the power of the mind and results in added energy and intelligence. Man who generally uses only a small portion of the total mind that he possesses, begins to make use of his full mental potential.

The technique may be defined as turning the attention inwards towards the subtler levels of thought until the mind transcends the experience of the subtlest state of the thought and arrives at the source of the thought. This expands the conscious mind and at the same time brings it in contact with the creative intelligence that gives rise to every thought.

A thought-impulse starts from the silent creative center within, as a bubble starts from the bottom of the sea. As it rises it becomes larger; arriving at the conscious level of the mind, it becomes large enough to be appreciated as a thought, and from there it develops into speech and action.

Turning the attention inward takes the mind from the experience of thought at the conscious level (B) to the finer states of the thought until the mind arrives at the source of the thought (A). This inward march of the mind results in the expansion of the conscious mind (from W1 to W2).

This que is described as Transcendental Meditation. Its practice is simple. There are no prerequisites for beginning the practice, other than receiving instructions from a qualified teacher.

It should be noted Transcendental Meditation is neither a matter of contemplation nor of concentration. The process of contemplation and concentration both hold the mind on the conscious level thinking, whereas Transcendental Meditation systematically takes the mind to the source of thought, the pure field of creative intelligence.
