'To a greater extent than ever before realized, we can influence the action of our DNA!' Hoffman suggests that adding Transcendental Meditation to one's healthy daily routine will support a positive change in genetic expression. (more)

Martin Scorsese and Ray Dalio talk creativity, meditation and success
16 January 2015 - At a recent private fund-raising dinner for the David Lynch Foundation, director Martin Scorsese and global hedge fund leader Ray Dalio gave personal accounts of how the Transcendental Meditation technique opens up new levels of their creativity and promotes health and success in their lives. 'There's only one thing you can do. Meditate, calm it down, and then, afterwards, deal with the realities,' said Mr Scorcese. According to Mr Dalio, the benefits from Transcendental Meditation accrue over time. 'The thing to convey is how it compounds. It keeps getting better for however long you're meditating. Next year will be better and the year after that will be better,' he said.

'A few individuals rising to totality are enough to raise the national consciousness to its full dignity' - Maharishi, 12 January 1978
12 January 2015 - Today the Global Country of World Peace is holding its annual conference celebrating the achievements of the worldwide programmes founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. On this day in 1978, Maharishi described the mechanics of bringing enlightenment to every individual and invincibility to every nation through his Transcendental Meditation programme: 'The totality of life will be open to our awareness. This is how just a few individuals rising to totality are enough to raise the national consciousness to its full dignity. Life in the nation is according to the laws of nature, health is perfect, nature is balanced, and every individual is able to fulfil all his desires without harming the interests of any other person. In fact, his success brings success to others. The technique of Transcendental Meditation cultures individual activity in such a way that the interests of the nation as a whole are upheld.' (more)
