The article features British chess champion Jonathan Rowson, who credits his 14-year practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique with preparing him for life at the top of his game.

The three-time UK chess champion told an Indian newspaper a visit to Delhi that he regularly practices the Transcendental Meditation program as part of his daily routine.

Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Mr Rowson, 33, learned Transcendental Meditation in 1998 while attending Oxford University, and now says he owes his first-class degree to it. 'It was by far the best thing I learned at Oxford,' he told a Scottish newspaper. 'I suddenly had more energy, concentrated better, and felt warmer towards other people.'

Mr Rowson also claims that he would never dream of playing a serious game of chess without meditating beforehand.
