On 29 May 2005 BellaOnline reported: 'Can meditation actually extend one's lifespan?' The answer seems to be yes, according to the findings of some very recent studies on the Transcendental Meditation Programme conducted on 202 test patients at five different medical centres and universities across the US. 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.

The women's website,, noted that the groups in the study which were taught the Transcendental Meditation technique to lower blood pressure had a 23% lower death rate overall. Current events editor Julie Sullivan went on to say that Transcendental Meditation not only alleviates stress and other key risk factors attributed to the onset and development of hypertension and heart disease, but 'it also promotes a general sense of fine health and inner peace that we all need in our lives'.

She also observed that researchers have learned from the study, published in the American Journal of Cardiology, that meditation benefits both 'the mind and body, as well as the whole being per se'.

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.
