Transcendental Stress Management Is Easy To Learn and Practice
You can now attend an in-person class at our center in Deerfield Beach. We also teach TSM Meditation for new
students on Zoom Free Video Conferencing. Learn to Meditate by adding your name to our next talk. The first
step is attending the free talk via Zoom. Nothing compares to practicing a method that lowers metabolism and
allows the mind to establish a deep, inner source of stability where stress and fear are reduced.
When practiced twice a day for 15 to 20 minutes, TSM Meditation lowers stress, reduces health care costs and
frequency of visits to a hospital or doctor. Learning TSM is less expensive than an overnight hospital stay or
a day at most spas, and the benefits continue for a lifetime. TSM does not require any change in lifestyle or
belief and once you learn it becomes a valuable tool for improving life as a whole.
If a system of deep meditation such as TSM is practiced regularly, students enjoy improved sleep, reduced
anxiety, depression, drug abuse, fatigue and unhappiness. Learning is easy and classes are offered regularly.
Our TSM Meditation instructors trained in India and Europe and have taught over 36,000 students. Our center is
here to help students develop their potential and live life in freedom from stress. Meet the Certified Teachers in South Florida.
As a medical doctor who practices and teaches TSM Meditation, I would like to point out that all
meditation methods are not the same. If I told a patient to take a pill, any pill, that would not be
sound medical advice. The same is true with meditation practices.
When I compare TSM with other methods it’s very clear that almost every method involves concentration,
visualization, focusing on breathing or making effort. Since TSM is the easiest, what science is calling
'automatic self-transcending', I think everyone who takes the four lessons and begins the practice will
be very pleased. I have never met a student who took the class that said it didn’t work. It’s a simple
enjoyable practice and I recommend it to everyone. - Gyanendra Mahapatra, M.D.
TSM Differs From Other Forms Of Meditation
There are many different forms of meditation. Some involve staying still while others focus on
movement. Some approaches attempt to clear the mind, while others like mindfulness aim to monitor,
observe, or manipulate thoughts and emotions.
Our method is called Transcendental Stress Management, commonly referred to by its abbreviation, TSM.
It’s not at all a new form of meditation. What is TSM exactly, and how does it differ from methods like
mindfulness meditation? Here’s what to know about this quieting mental technique and how it can benefit
TSM does not require or involve any type of concentration, control or contemplation, and it doesn’t
require or favor any particular belief or philosophy. Anyone who can think can meditate. There is no
special skill required to become an expert at it. Other meditation techniques tend to keep the attention
engaged or focused, requiring the mind remain active instead of naturally moving into deeper silence and
awareness. One is not required to pay attention to the breath, the body, the five senses, to visualize
any image, or to be guided by a person’s voice. In TSM, the mind dives within and contacts the source of
thought or what is called the field of pure awareness.
TSM Meditation provides deep relaxation, not a time for work or trying to blank your mind. Students
learn all they need in 4 standardized lessons. From there, you are an expert. This is Transcendental
Stress Management. There is no need to concentrate or focus the mind. Automatically you settle in and let
go control. You
can do this. It's not expensive or difficult. You are not required to join a club or even believe
anything. TSM is effortless. One could be in a happy mood or a sad mood. It will not matter, TSM works
mood or belief. After taking a few lessons people start looking forward to each sitting.

You are not required to join a club or even believe anything. TSM is effortless. One could be in a happy mood
or a sad mood. It will not matter, TSM works regardless of mood or belief.
TSM Meditation is practiced twice a day. After taking a few lessons people start looking forward to each
sitting. At the beginning of each day we meditate. This wakes the mind, settles the body and prepares us for
more enjoyment. When the day is done, we practice again and wash away the stresses of the day. The body
receives deep rest during meditation and this enables the system to recover from the stress of the day. It's
an easy and natural system.
While sitting quietly with eyes closed the mind reaches a state of profound calm known as restful alertness.
This is a natural state where the mind comes to experience deep, silent meditation.
Anyone can learn TSM Meditation. There are no books to read or instructions to memorize. If you are human and
awake you can learn how to meditate, how to transcend.
As you continue on with your daily practice of meditation, benefits increase. We naturally become more and
more familiar with the process of going inward, beyond thought, tapping one’s inner reserves of creativity,
intelligence and well-being.
We realize that there are many different methods of meditation to consider. However TSM is unique, has been
taught for decades and can be learned by anyone. TSM Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is
a way of entering into the quiet that is already there. Silence is the great teacher and to learn its lessons
you must pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability
that come from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence.
TSM Meditation is a vital way to purify and quiet the mind, thus rejuvenating the body. Part of maintaining
your well-being is taking the time to disconnect from the outside to go within. TSM Meditation allows for a
progressive quieting of our mind, until we reach the source of thought. In this domain of awareness there is
infinite creativity, synchronicity, the power of intention, and freedom from limitations. One naturally
experiences a quieting of the mind and body for a time, waits for the fog of thought to thin, and glimpses the
During the practice of TSM the mind systematically experiences more refined, silent mental activity. As the
mind spontaneously settles inward and mental activity subsides, wakefulness increases. The mind comes to a
state of perfect rest, but remains awake in its state of maximum comprehension: the silent state of pure,
transcendental consciousness—a reservoir of unlimited energy, happiness and creative intelligence.
There are many systems of what is called meditation that attempt to refine the mind by controlling it in one
way or another. All such attempts are difficult and tedious, and, far from achieving anything, tend to take
away from life. Because of the difficulty and inefficiency of these methods of mind control the idea has
become accepted that the path to the development of consciousness is difficult. By turning the mind inwards
during TSM we point the mind towards the field of absolute bliss, creativity, and wisdom. It is upon this
principle that our system of meditation is based, and consequently its practice is not difficult.
Summary of Benefits
Over 1,000 research studies prove: People who meditate every day are healthier, happier, and live
longer than those who don't. They have less stress, insomnia and depression, stronger
immunity, sharper minds, better problem-solving abilities, less anger, and better human relationships.
Through the practice of TSM, the body and mind are rejuvenated. Health improves. Sleep improves, aging is
slowed and there is less of a desire to use tobacco, alcohol and recreational drugs. Interpersonal relations
improve. Students get better grades. Other benefits include: reduced job worry and tension, better mental
and physical health, more energy and vitality, increased alertness, increased happiness and job
satisfaction, improved productivity and job performance, and improved family life.
Different From Mindfulness
'Mindfulness' meditation is a form of Buddhist meditation and is taught and practiced by many. All Buddhist
meditation techniques involve focus and control. Some more and some less. But all do. So they either start
out or become difficult to practice over time. Our TSM Meditation teachers have taught Buddhist monks and
other monastic students TSM. They always agree after learning - TSM is easier and different from Mindfulness
meditation because it does not involve any focusing or control. Focus restricts the mind, causing boredom
With TSM one naturally arrives at the source of thought. This is a very natural state of restful alertness
where the mind and body are awake but inactive. We call this experience 'Transcendence'. In Mindfulness one
is not taught how to achieve transcendence and by design one is required to keep the mind engaged. This is
the key difference. TSM Meditation is effortless.
One way to understand effortlessness is to consider a song you heard on the radio one morning. Hours later
that song repeats itself in our minds. There is no effort and the mind experiences that song going in the
background. TSM uses this principle of effortless to gain deep and inactive meditation. At a free
introductory talk, a TSM instructor explains this principle and students get the comparison with
TSM Meditation expands the mind's capacity for experience, and relaxes and heals the body.
