Slide1: 

UNEP– LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME 2005 – HUMAN DIMENSIONS – SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE by Prof. M. M. Mehta Maharishi Ayurveda Products Ltd.

Slide2: 

SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE “In our times, we are a witness to the Scientific expansion of man’s mind and extension of his physical presence to new realms from the atomic nucleus to the moon, planets and stars” “Science has enabled man to expand his influence in outward directions and given him command over certain laws of nature. But within himself, man and society, beset with problems resulting from continual mistakes, continue to suffer” (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi). 3. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has provided an effective, yet simple,easy-to-learn and effort-less, technique to enable us to come out of the state of suffering and to experience the full creative potential of higher consciousness.

Slide3: 

SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE Known as ‘Transcendental Meditation’. This technique enables the mind to experience finer and finer levels of the thinking process to reach the source of thought- pure intelligence, the Transcendental consciousness. TM, therefore, is a mental process by which we reach the state of Transcendental Consciousness in order to experience within our selves the field of infinite source of energy, intelligence and creativity.

Slide4: 

SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE TM technique is a procedure for generating a state of least excitation of Consciousness , mind, emotions & body. This state, ‘Pure consciousness’ or ‘transcendental consciousness’, is identified as the 4th state of consciousness, and the origin of the structure and properties of working, sleeping and dreaming. This is the source of the creative process, a state of silent awareness devoid of any thought process, which is responsible for the Structure of the thought process, matter, energy and the laws which govern physical events.

Slide5: 

8. TM PROCESS: TM is a systematic procedure of turning the attention inwards towards the subtler levels of a thought until the mind transcends the experience of the subtlest state of the thought and arrives at the source of the thought. This expands the conscious mind and at the same time brings it in contact with the creative intelligence that gives rise to every thought.

8. TM PROCESS: The bubble of thought rising from the level Z becomes bigger (see illustration). By the time it reaches the surface level A, it has developed enough to be appreciated as a thought. This is the level of the conscious mind. TM enables the thought to be consciously appreciated at a level below A and at all levels of subtlety from A to Z. In this way the depth and the power of the conscious mind increases many fold to the level of transcendental consciousness.

TM PROCESS: The duration of time one is in this state of ‘pure consciousness' keeps getting extended with practice. The above process, rather than requiring effort to concentrate, is experienced to be effortless because the fainter levels of thinking are found to be more soothing, aesthetically more attractive. As one moves along a gradient towards reducing levels of excitation of consciousness, there is a corresponding exponential increase in ‘order’ which inevitably attracts attention to that level of awareness where there is least excitation and perfect order – the field of pure consciousness.

Scientific Research on TM: More than 700 independent scientific researches have been conducted at numerous Institutes including Harvard Medical School, Cornell University, Stanford University, University of Chicago, etc. These Studies have been published in journals like Science, Hypertension, Academy of Management journal, Psychosomatic Medicine, etc.

Slide9: 

With this background information on TM and an explanation of how the main principle of Transcendental Meditation works, we will turn our attention to the benefits of the technique. Benefits of TM, for our purpose, are Mental potential, Health, and Social Behavior. SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE Personality, Productivity & Leadership Qualities

SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE Personality, Productivity & Leadership Qualities 10. Key Findings: i) Improved Health: The rest experienced during TM is more than twice as deep as the deepest point of deep sleep.This allows the body to revitalise, rejuvenate, and heal itself. Doctor visits reduced by 50% (70% for over-40-year olds), reduced heart disease, cancer, high BP, Asthma, chronic headaches, premature ageing, more energy and vitality. Improved athletic performance.

Slide12: 

SCIENCE OF CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE Personality, Productivity & Leadership Qualities 10. Key Findings: iii) Improved Mental Potential: It is estimated that we use only 5 to 15 % of our mental potential. During TM we come in to direct contact with the rest of the unused potential. By awakening the dormant reserves of our brain, TM improves intuition and makes thinking and planning more effective. Improved decision making, increased creativity and intelligence, better memory, broader comprehension along with increased ability to focus, better concentration, improved job satisfaction and performance.
