“During the TM practice, the active thinking mind settles down naturally to a state of “inner wakefulness,” where the mind is silent yet fully alert. At the same time the body gains a profound state of rest and relaxation. This unique state of “restful alertness” develops the total brain and eliminates accumulated stress and fatigue. This experience is the basis for the increased creativity and intelligence and improved health reported by people who practice the TM technique.” — Dr. John Hagelin
