Welcome to Books on TM!
Meditation is an ancient system dating back thousands of years. Originally developed as a means of understanding Oneself, meditation is designed to purify the body and mind thereby freeing the pathway for the individual to understand and experience their true nature.
Up until about 50 years ago meditation was largely inaccessible to people in the West because meditation was traditionally handed down from guru to disciple. Thanks to a few great yogis and their disciples who brought this knowledge to the West, we are now able to access much of this vast, invaluable and precious knowledge.
