The Origins of the Transcendental Meditation programme
Transcendental Meditation may not have always had the same name, but the basic technique has been taught for several thousand years, although, it's history is not a continuous one.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Before Maharishi brought Transcendental Meditation to light, meditation was thought to be extremely difficult, involving feats of concentration no one could ever accomplish. It was thought to be painfully slow to produce results, and impractical - only for the recluse lost in otherworldly pursuits, not for ordinary people in the midst of their daily responsibilities.

Guru Dev - Swami Brahmananda Saraswati
To all who came to him for guidance he taught an ancient meditation technique originating in the vedas, the oldest Indian teachings. He made this teaching available to those leading active lives in the world and recluses alike. Thus establishing the basis for the present world-wide revival and teaching of the Transcendental Meditation program.
