Scientific research has shown reduced impulsive behaviour—as well improved health and less stress—among employees practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

The study, conducted in Japan by the National Institute of Industrial Health, is among nearly 100 research studies included in Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers Volume 6.

Compared to controls, several hundred industrial workers practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme showed decreased impulsiveness. This means greater internal stability, which has at its basis greater physiological stability, explained Dr Michael Dillbeck.

Dr Dillbeck is an expert on Transcendental Meditation research. He is one of the editors of Collected Papers Volume 5, and the editor of Volume 6.

'Greater stability of behaviour [is] very, very crucial when one is working in a heavy industrial setting. One has to be very precise and definitely not impulsive,' he added.

Other findings of the study included 'better health in many parameters, reduced stress and anxiety, better sleep at night and so on,' Dr Dillbeck said.

In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to feature Dr Dillbeck's report highlighting studies from Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers, Volume 6.
