In modern times the knowledge of Transcendental Meditation has been spread by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharishi received the technique from his Teacher with whom he studied for many years, before inaugurating a world-wide movement to spread the knowledge of Transcendental Meditation around the world in 1957. Maharishi first came to the UK in 1959.
Transcendental Meditation is a technique. It does not involve or require any faith or belief. It simply utilises the natural tendency of the mind to settle down and experience the least excited state of consciousness, the simplest form of human awareness, a state of restful alertness.
Transcendental Meditation is now established in just about every country around the world. There are about 40 teaching Centres in the UK.
