Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme    Translate This Article
7 March 2012

The unique state of rest created during the Transcendental Meditation Technique not only relieves the system from the general fatigue of daily activity, it also dissolves the deep-rooted stresses accumulated in the body.

Transcendental Meditation improves both the functioning of the physical nervous system and its coordination with the mind. Energy and efficiency in action increase, and one is able to accomplish more without becoming unduly tired. Transcendental Meditation is the one simple procedure that anyone can add to their daily routine to enjoy far-reaching and profound benefits for health and longevity.

Extensive research findings include:

Improved health of the cardiovascular system:
∙ Improved exercise tolerance among coronary patients
∙ Normalization of high blood pressure in students and adults
∙ Reduced atherosclerosis—reduced risk of stroke
∙ Reduction of high cholesterol

A nine-year randomized control trial conducted at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, USA, in collaboration with the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, followed 201 men and women with narrowing of the arteries in their hearts.

This study, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute) of the U.S. government, concluded that heart disease patients who practise the Transcendental Meditation Technique have nearly 50 per cent lower rates of heart attack, stroke, and death. (Presented at the annual conference of the American Heart Association, 16 November 2009.)

The National Institutes of Health have granted over $24 million to study the effects of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation on cardiovascular patients in the USA.
