To gain the direct experience of the supreme reality of life, the Vedas emphasise sadhana, which encompasses all spiritual practice. The peaceful atmosphere at the Vedic Village will be very conducive for your sadhana, be it yoga, meditation or any other spiritual practice received from your teacher.
You are welcome to join Surya Namaskaram and Yoga Asanas, participate in our regular group meditations, enjoy the Rudrabhishek and Veda parayana performed by our pandits and be introduced to pujas, bhajans and other traditional Vedic performances – all as part of a sublime and relaxing stay at Maitreyi.
Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation will be taught at “Maitreyi – The Vedic Village” in a one-week residential course. Courses can ideally begin on Saturday morning and conclude on Friday night.
For the Indian visitors from time to time we offer the possibility to learn Transcendental Meditation (TM) in an inspiring week at Maitreyi. You will get profound experiences and benefits from its practice and at the same time get introduced to Maharishi’s Vedic Science and the worldwide activities of Maharishi’s movement. The donation for learning TM will go fully to Maharishi Ved Vigyan Vishwa Vidya Peeth, supporting the manifold activities of the charitable trust in India.
Transcendental Meditation as taught by His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi comes from an ancient tradition of knowledge – the Vedic Tradition of India – that has stood the test of time as the supreme science and technology of consciousness. The Vedic Tradition has carefully maintained the purity of this practice for thousands of years, ensuring its effectiveness for us today.
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural technique practiced for 15 to 20 minutes morning and evening while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. Transcendental Meditation is easy to learn, effortless to practice and does not require specific beliefs, behaviour or lifestyle. By now worldwide more than six million people of all ages, cultures, religions and educational background have learnt the Transcendental Meditation technique.
During Transcendental Meditation one’s awareness settles down and one experiences a unique state of restful alertness – Transcendental Consciousness, the simplest form of human awareness, the inner reservoir of creativity, energy and intelligence.
As the activity of the mind is reduced, the body gains a unique state of deep rest, releasing accumulated stress and revitalizing the entire nervous system. Through the resulting development of mind and improvement in health, the individual enjoys increasing success and satisfaction in life.
The effects and benefits of Transcendental Meditation (TM ) have been documented by more than 600 scientific research studies conducted at 200 universities and research institutions in 35 countries. No other program for personal development has received this level of attention and respect from the scientific community. This remarkable body of research showing that Transcendental Meditation produces basic improvements on all levels of life – health, mental potential, social behaviour, and world peace – confirms that this technology of consciousness operates on the most fundamental level of nature’s functioning, enlivening the field of Natural Law in the consciousness of the individual and in society, so that life may be lived in accord with Natural Law.
