Joining hands to create peace in Israel and the Middle East
29 September 2015 - 'Transcendental Meditation in Israel, adopted by one or two per cent of the population of the country, and the attitude of the enemies around will change.' In a 1976 interview for Israeli TV, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi referred to recent research showing reduced crime rate in '1%' cities in the US. Now 50 demonstrations and 23 studies published in peer-reviewed journals have confirmed that group practice of TM and its advanced programmes by the square root of 1% of a population reduces violence and conflict and creates coherence and peace for the whole society. One study, published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, was conducted in 1983 at the peak of the Lebanon war. On days when the number in a group in Israel practising these peace-creating technologies of consciousness was high, war deaths in neighbouring Lebanon dropped by 76% and other indicators of social stress declined in Israel.

The Transcendental Meditation advantage for education
25 September 2015 - One of the main reasons parents choose Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment (MSAE) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, for their kids is because Transcendental Meditation (TM) is part of the curriculum. Students find that TM provides an advantage in learning--because their minds are more settled and focused, learning is effortless. Two recent graduates describe how the educational programme, including daily TM practice, helped them overcome teenage stress and become successful and happy students, now going on to fulfil their dreams in college.
