"If 10,500 current practitioners of Transcendental Meditation ("TM") in America were each to inform 10,500 new people about the 
benefits of the TM technique per month, then possibly every person in the United States (pop. 312,000,000) could hear about Transcendental Meditation in less than three months."

"Use a Treatment for PTSD that Actually Works"

The Hill, December 8, 2015

 "Military personnel and veterans are often hesitant to seek PTSD treatment because it could be viewed as a sign of weakness. Transcendental Meditation ("TM") is a self-sufficient technique, free from the possible stigma of mental health services ...

"TM is a cost-effective, easily learned, and effortless mental technique derived from ancient practices in India. It is taught in a systematic, highly structured and standardized manner by highly-trained teachers throughout the world. More than 350 peer-reviewed studies, showing positive effects on mental and physical health, have been published in research journals."

A Research Project -

Comparing Transcendental Meditation Practitioners to a Very Large Control Group 
using Blue Cross Health Insurance Statistics; Orme-Johnston /1987



"A study of insurance statistics of 2000 TM meditators over a five-year period has shown a greater than 50% reduction in both inpatient and outpatient medical care utilization compared to controls matched for age, gender, and occupation. The Transcendental Meditation program group had lower sickness rates in all categories of disease, including 87% less hospitalization for heart disease and 55% less for cancer.

"The difference between the Transcendental Meditation program and other groups was greatest for individuals over 40 years of age."

 Stars Who Practice Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation"

"Daily Beast" / 2014 

"I started Transcendental Meditation in 1973 and have not missed a single meditation ever since. Twice a day, every day. It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within."
- David Lynch, Film Director

"It’s the easiest thing I ever did. I have been doing it since I was 18. 
I love to do it after the show. I find it very relaxing.”

- Howard Stern on his practice of Transcendental Meditation

"I've tried to meditate before ... focusing on the breathing ... Someting about TM, it's the only time I have that stillness. I can't say enough good things about it."

- Ellen Degenerous on the Ease of Learning Transcendental Meditation


"After I did the first week of TM where I did it twice a day, from that moment on I've never been that frazzled ever again."
Liv Tyler, Actress

A Common Question  About Transcendental Meditation:

"Why is there no monitoring or recording of thoughts during the practice of Transcendental Meditation?"
A Possible Answer:
"During Transcendental Meditation, the mind quickly dives to an area that is beyond thought -- an area of pure awareness.
This is the experience of the inner field of intelligence and creativity, which are the building blocks of all thoughts. Steeped in these two qualities, Transcendental Meditation practitioners then come out of meditation ready to enjoy life fully, without further process or delay. 

Transcendental Meditation, thus, is easy to practice by people of all ages, abilities, race and religion. It is the best tool for creating happiness and 
peace of mind in your day!"

"Students Practicing Transcendental Meditation
Around the World"
"Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced twenty minutes twice each day, while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle.
"Over six million people have learned it — people of all ages, cultures and religions — and over 380 published peer-reviewed research studies have found that the TM technique markedly reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue, improves learning ability, and promotes balanced functioning of body and mind."

"The initial studies demonstrate that Amrit is the most effective antioxidant, by far. It has 1,000 times
 more anti-oxidant power than vitamin C, vitamin E or the drug probucol. Free radical damage is linked to over 80% of disease."

"In fruit flies fed 12% Maharishi Amrit Kalash ... life span was significantly increased (+70%)."

Bill's Hot Cider

Served now for over twenty years!

Place 6 sticks of whole cinnamon and a large pinch of whole cloves in each 64 oz. jug of apple juice overnight.

Add the same amount of spices once more to the bottom of your first pot of hot cider before heating on high. Re-use all whole spices (leave in pot) with each additional filling of crockpot, for increased flavour. Juice may also be "cut" with purified water by one half -- or even by 3/4 (4 water, 1 juice ... plus 1/2 cup of brown sugar) for a great "apple tea"!

Sip very hot and very slowly with good friends or strangers.

An Historic Interview:

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the "Larry King Show" 

KING: You're a bachelor. Do you have
special diets that you eat?

MAHARISHI: I think that a diet that I eat,
everyone may eat the same thing -- some rice,
some dal, some chapattis, something vegetable ...
but I like this organic, organic. 

I recommend the people organic agriculture --
Huge amount of scientific research has shown
that with the Vedic hymns, with the Vedic melodies,
the nutrients grow in the trees very much -- 
in the fruits, in the crops, in the vegetables.
So that is what I am promoting in the world.
