On 19 March 2005 The Australian reported: Meditation can reduce stress levels and alter the way one looks at the world. Writer Ruth Ostrow discussed both her personal experience with meditation and reviewed scientific studies, including Dr Robert Keith Wallace's studies on the Transcendental Meditation Programme, that underscore the profound benefits of regular meditation to help reduce stress and stress-related illnesses. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

Ostrow noted that separate studies by UCLA physiologist R. Keith Wallace, showed that those who practised TM 'regularly for up to five years had an average biological age five years lower than their chronological age. Those who had been meditating for more than five years had an average biological age that was 12 years lower than their chronological age'.

Ostrow said, 'The research fits very comfortably with my own empirical research,' and ended the article by emphasizing that 'we should never underestimate the healing power of the mind'.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
