Jerry Yellin served in World War II as an Army Air Corps fighter pilot. Reflecting about his life, retired Captain Yellin said, 'I had a wonderful wife and was the father of four wonderful sons, but I couldn't enjoy them. I was unhappy with life itself until the summer of 1975. My life took on meaning and purpose within the first month of doing Transcendental Meditation twice a day, every day.'

Jerry says, 'These many benefits—inner peace, contentment, and freedom from anger and blame—seem to come to all who learn TM. I know it made me a better husband, a better father, and a better person, without me ever thinking about those traits and characteristics. Without trying. It happened as a natural result of my mind diving deep within and my body dissolving deep-rooted stresses.'
