It’s practitioners can experience the numerous physical and psychological benefits, from low blood pressure to improved concentration.

I do TM and I don't know I lived without it before. Its really changed up my life for the better. By the way you don't have to do TM in the lotus seat while sitting on concrete. It works just as good in a chair or on a plane or bus, which is the way I do it. Peace!
