On 19 January 2017 Hindustan Times reported: Practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique for 20 minutes twice a day can significantly reduce trauma symptoms such as unwanted thoughts and help female prisoners find inner peace, a study* has found. 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 research team encouraged prison inmates to practice Transcendental Meditation individually in their prison cells twice daily and encouraged them to attend 30-40 minute group meditation sessions, supervised by a teacher, twice a week over the four-month study period.

The results showed that after four months of practicing the meditation technique, the women inmates had significant reductions in total trauma symptoms, including intrusive thoughts and hyperarousal.
