On 31 January 2020, Madhav Aryal, Nepal Teacher of the Transcendental Meditation program, was interviewed on AYO Nepal TV. Madhav was asked about the difference between meditation and Transcendental Meditation. Madhav replied:
“Meditation is like contemplation or concentration which keep the mind on the surface level— this is directly opposite to the practice of Transcendental Meditation which easily allows the mind to go inward and settle to its deepest and most quiet level of wakefulness. And when the mind dives deep inside, then our body gains profound rest which is the basis of good health. When people are calm and healthy then their behavior becomes positive.”
The Interviewer then asked Madhav how long he has been teaching TM here in Nepal. Madhav said that he has been teaching TM for 20 years and taught 10,000 people. Madhav added:
“TM is like what Lord Krishna taught to Arjuna in the Bhagavad-Gita, Chapter 2, Vs.45 – Nistraigunyo Bhavarjuna, which means to retire from the field of activity to the field of Transcendental Being. In this pure field of Being, the mind and body are refreshed and nourished so that after TM, activity can be more enjoyable and successful. The Bhagavad-Gītā presents a timeless formula for rising above the mundane problems of life to enjoy eternal freedom in higher states of consciousness.”

B-TV Interview – Minraj Adhikari
Minraj has been a Teacher of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program in Nepal for 10 years and Kalpana has been teaching TM for 20 years throughout Nepal. The interviewer asked Minraj where TM was being practiced in Kathmandu. Minraj talked about the many schools and institutions where TM is practiced twice daily—and why the technique is easy and effortless and can be learned by anyone.
Minraj also mentioned that TM was recently taught in a Nepal prison where more than 220 prisoners learned the TM technique. The prisoners reported that they are enjoying better sleep and feel less stress and anxiety. Minraj also added that many people who are not in jail are also feeling the pressure of life—so Minraj recommends to everyone to learn this profound technology for deep rest, relief from anxiety, better health, and more happiness.
Minraj also explained Maharishi’s Unified Field Chart which shows how creation at its basis is unified. The structure of the Unified Field Chart and the function of the Unified Field Chart are significant. According to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Founder of the TM program, the ultimate purpose of the Unified Field Chart is to foster the growth of higher states of consciousness. Also the Unified Field Chart can be applied to every academic discipline and any area of human life.
