TM-Sidhi Course and
Advanced Techniques Tour
Completed Successfully in Lebanon

During the month of July 2001, Maharishi Health Education Center has successfully completed a new TM-Sidhi course in Lebanon. Mr. Rao and Mrs. Lakshmi who are TM-Sidhi Administrators and also Advanced Techniques teachers, came from Maharishi Vedic University to conduct the two courses.

Sunset at Kanat Bakish as viewed from above the cloudsThe course was given for two groups, in Lebanon and Kuwait. The in-center section was given, in Lebanon at Adlieh TM center, and in Kuwait city simultaneously, while the flying section was given in one of the most beautiful mountain areas of  Lebanon at Kanat Bakish. 

Kanat Bakish is one of the famous skiing areas in Lebanon, the hotel with its surrounding views was really fantastic, and the weather was cool even in the month of July. Al course participants enjoyed the course and at the same time the beauty of the location. 

The course participants of both groups of Lebanon and Kuwait are from Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq and India. They all came together during the flying section to create a coherent and harmonious group. Lebanon, although it is the smallest country among the Middle East area and the Arab World, but its good relation with all the neighboring country, allows the Lebanese people to play an important role in the area. We are the main link between the Arab world and the western world, all the western civilization and culture have been entered to the Area through Lebanon. For all this, and as a TM movement in Lebanon, we have this ability to spread the Maharishi Vedic Science and Technologies into the Arab World, and we have achieved lots of success in the direction. That is we always repeat, "Lebanon is the Lighthouse of the Middle East"

Mr. Rao and Mrs. LakshmiMr. Rao and Mrs. Lakshmi who conducted the course were the radiators of love and calmness in every step and every action they did. They quickly created a worm relation between them and the course participants, and after the 15 days of the flying section the fair well celebration was full of tears. On the Graduation celebration Mr. Rao and Mrs. Lakshmi expressed their distinguish and deep feeling of love toward the course participants, who by their turn expressed about their gratitude and appreciation to Masharishi and Guru Dev who gave this wonderful knowledge and to the teachers and they wished them a life full of success and happiness.

As it is becoming part of every TM-Sidhi course at the graduation celebration the course participants express their experiences in a talent show, this time it was in two comedic sketches, which made the audience laugh and laugh for a complete hour. 

At the Graduation Celebration, the course participants invited their parents, families and relatives. The celebration by it self, was a lively introduction on the TM activities and especially the TM-Sidhi course. During the celebration the administration of the Maharishi Health Education Center distributed a "Certificate of Completion" to every course participant and a "Center Award" to the TM Teachers.   

What is the TM-Sidhi Course?

The TM-Sidhi program trains the individual to operate from the least excited state of consciousness, to think from the level of the unified field of all the laws of nature. By learning to function from this self referral state of pure consciousness, the mind gains increasing support of nature for the fulfillment of desires. With the TM-Sidhi program, thought and action spontaneously become more in accord with the evolutionary power of Natural Law. This results in greater skill in action - the ability to fulfill one’s desires naturally while effortlessly promoting the evolution of everyone and everything.
One aspect of the TM-Sidhi program is called Yogic Flying. During the first stage of Yogic flying, the body lifts up and moves forward in short hops. Subjectively one experience exhilaration, lightness and bliss. Scientific studies show that during this practice, at the moment the body lifts up, coherence is maximum in brain wave activity. When Yogic flying is practiced in groups, this influence of coherence spreads throughout the environment, reducing negative tendencies and promoting positive and harmonious trends in the whole society.

Advanced Techniques Tour

At the time when the TM-Sidhi course was running, groups from different centers of Lebanon were applying to take new advanced techniques. More than 100 course participants attended the advanced techniques course and they went deeper in their experiences of the Transcendental Meditation. Advanced Techniques enhance and enrich the benefits of one's daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation program. Through regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, the mind becomes familiar with finer levels of the thinking process and with the source of thought -- Transcendental Consciousness -- the home of all the Laws of Nature. Through the Advanced Techniques of the Transcendental Meditation program, the totality of Natural Law is more quickly and profoundly integrated in the awareness. As the conscious mind becomes more and more infused with pure consciousness, a powerful influence of integration and bliss is created. Every phase of thought and action spontaneously becomes more supported by the evolutionary power of Natural Law, resulting in greater fulfillment of desires in daily life.

What is Total Knowledge?

From Maharishi’s inauguration of the Parliament of World Peace June 14, 2001

Vedic education means education of Total Knowledge. What is that Total Knowledge?

Consciousness has a structure. What is this structure of consciousness? It is the physiology of  anything that is there in creation.

Physiology is one kind of structure of consciousness. At the basis of each structure is the structuring process, which we see as the Laws of Nature. The structuring process—an  unbounded, unmanifest, transcendental reality—is free from boundaries, free from structures. There is no limitation. It’s an unbounded, flat, self-referral field of intelligence. It is self-referral Atma—the Self of everyone.

It has as its nature two qualities for us to understand. One is pure knowledge—Total Knowledge. And there are structures of Total Knowledge, which are the syllables of the Vedic expressions—speech. Whatever the Vedic pundits recite, those are the structures of consciousness with the inherent quality of the structuring process.

They transform the unstructured, unmanifest field of Pure Intelligence into structures of physiology. One could see consciousness, one could hear consciousness, one could touch consciousness, one could smell consciousness, one could taste consciousness.

There are exhortations in the Vedic Literature: "Atma should be seen." That means what you see should be a reality. Whatever you see is nothing but expression of consciousness. "All that you do, you think, your emotions, your speech, your understanding, your vision—all these are Atma."

Then you are the knower of reality. Then you live the reality. And the reality, even though it appears to be within boundaries, has its unbounded transcendental value. Those who practice Transcendental Meditation know what it means—a new world is experienced in Transcendental Consciousness.
