"My TM-Sidhi Programme provides a direct entry to the full blossoming of the creative genius of everyone; it is a master key to open the field of higher states of consciousness, where one naturally lives life supported by the evolutionary power of Natural Law." - Maharishi
What is the TM-Sidhi Programme?
The TM-Sidhi Programme is an advanced programme of Transcendental Meditation that enhances the benefits of Transcendental Meditation and accelerates the growth to higher states of consciousness.

Who Teaches the TM-Sidhi Programme?
Improved Brain Functioning
Neuroscience tells us that everything good about the brain depends on its coherent and orderly functioning.
Scientific research has established that during Transcendental Meditation, brain functioning becomes highly orderly and coherent. During the TM-Sidhi practice, especially Yogic Flying, this coherence becomes even more widespread, with maximum coherence at the point when the body lifts off the ground. Heightened coherence indicates greater use of the brain's potential.
Studies on the TM and TM-Sidhi Programme show that this coherent brain functioning carries over into daily activity, resulting in increased IQ, higher levels of creativity, greater emotional stability, improved learning ability, moral maturity, better health and much more.

The TM-Sidhi Programme balances mind and body from the deepest level of consciousness. The most powerful aspect of this programme is the Yogic Flying Technique. During Yogic Flying, brainwave synchrony is maximized as the body lifts up and moves forward in short hops—a sort of "meditation in motion". Internally, the experience is accompanied by feelings of exhilaration, expanded awareness, inner freedom, lightness and "bubbling bliss."
The combination of inner silence and outer dynamism provides a powerful means of stabilising higher states of consciousness — enlightenment.
Benefits for Society
While the TM-Sidhi Programme can be practised alone or with friends and family, social scientists have found that when people come together and practise the programme in sufficiently large groups, they create a measurable influence of orderliness and coherence for the surrounding population. Researchers have identified this phenomenon as a "field effect" and tested its validity in more than 50 separate scientific studies - many of which can be found in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
The Maharishi Effect
This coherence-creating influence, termed the Maharishi Effect, is said to neutralise negativity and stress in society—as a natural consequence of reducing social stress, the crime rate drops, sickness and accident rates drop and the economy improves.
The Maharishi Effect is a recent discovery for modern science, but the phenomenon was described by the Vedic scholar Patanjali thousands of years ago in the ancient text of Vedic Science known as The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Knowing that you're also contributing more powerfully to the peace and coherence of society brings an added fulfilment.
