Frank Hanna, a Vedic Science major from Panama, said in a recent video interview that when he learnt Transcendental Meditation (TM) he realized that 'there were not only directions such as up, down, North, South, East, West. There's also the inward direction, where you can go inside.  

‘When you can experience that,' he said, 'then you realize that reality has a lot more to it than meets the eye on the gross level, and you can train your awareness to pick that up. 

'So when you come out, you experience to a bigger relative extent, in which your attention is magnified, and you tend to appreciate things more because you're not so caught up in them. You're looking at them from an outside perspective.' 

A Maharishi University of Management alumna, who graduated in 2003 with a BA in Maharishi Vedic Science, commented that you ‘charge your system to be more effective, and more creative and you're not accumulating stress, therefore you're not getting sick somewhere in the future. You're able to be more creative and apply yourself throughout your day, so I think it's a very good investment in regards to time.’ 

Hari Prabowo, an MBA/Accounting co-op student from India comments that in the six months he has spent at Maharishi University of Management, he realizes ‘that my energy level has gone up drastically. I think meditation and everything really helped me in becoming a 'normal' person and realizing myself, this is the right place. 

‘The silence [experienced during Transcendental Meditation] gives me a lot of happiness,’ he said, ‘and I realize that. So that's a big surprise also!' 

‘Transcendental Meditation for anyone would have the benefit of connecting yourself to your Self for a moment,’ said Nynke Passi, Professor of Literature and Writing, ‘and really helping to get that moment of rest and [realize] “Oh yes, this is who I am. I am home here.” 

‘When you come out of that you feel more refreshed. You feel much better and more alive and more awake.’ 

US student Marissa Markotwitz, a Sustainable Living major from Iowa, comments that in Transcendental Meditation ‘you tap into such a deep level of rest and I always feel I come out feeling really dynamic and ready to get into every action. It's that Unified Field, that source of ultimate potentiality is somehow just wanting to do everything.’ 

‘It gets rid of blocks,’ said Anna Bruen, another Sustainable Living Major from Iowa. ‘You can get creative blocks; you get stumped. Those blocks get removed.'   

'They just melt away,' Marissa added.
