A landmark study showing a reduction in the rate of mortality, heart attack, and stroke among those who practiced the Transcendental Meditation technique, compared to a control group, has now been published in a journal of the American Heart Association.

The results of the study have been covered by media worldwide such as TIME magazine, CNN, NBC, ABC, WebMD, Huffington Post, and Health Day.

The headline on TIME read, ''Strongest Study Yet Shows Meditation Can Lower Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke.'' The article noted the rigor of the study, saying, ''The great lengths to which the researchers of the Circulation study went to make their trial scientifically rigorous, however, should reinforce the results in the eyes of some skeptics.''

Maharishi University of Management coauthors of the study, which was published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, include Maxwell Rainforth, Sanford Nidich, Carolyn Gaylord King, John Salerno, and Charles Alexander.

The study was conducted in collaboration with the Medical College of Wisconsin. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, a part of the National Institutes of Health (US), funded this study.
