28 October 2013

The latest volume of scientific research published on Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme covers a wide range of results showing the effectiveness of the practice, from improved heart health to decreased war violence.

In Volume 7 of Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Program: Collected Papers, said Dr Michael Dillbeck, International Research Professor at Maharishi University of Management and editor of the volume, the studies were mainly conducted between 1997 and 2005. There are 81 fully reprinted studies from 115 different authors and 50 different universities.

Some select findings from these studies include:

Reduced high blood pressure and atherosclerosis
— Reduced physician expenses and mortality
Improved intellectual functioning and behaviour of students
— Growth of uniquely high levels of self-development
— Increased brain integration
— Growth of cosmic consciousness*
— Reduced stress and increased leadership in business
— Long-term reduced recidivism in prisoners
— Decreased crime, war violence, and international conflict

All the studies are reprinted fully, so the original findings, data, and charts can be perused or shown to anyone. Dr Dillbeck added that knowing of the research makes most people confident in Transcendental Meditation. (read more)
