Scientific Research

Transcendental Meditation is the most widely researched technique for self-development in the world today. In the USA, the National Institute of Health has spent $24 million funding long-term research into Transcendental Meditation. More than 600 studies have been conducted over the past 40 years at universities, hospitals, and research institutes worldwide, and published in over 160 scientific and medical journals.

Regular practice of Transcendental Meditation has been found to develop greater mental alertness and wellbeing, faster recovery from stress, slower ageing, improved problem solving, better memory, improved social relations at home and at work, and a wide range of improvements in health, including a 47% reduction in mortality from heart attack, strokes and mortality in coronary patients.

“If this kind of result was observed for a new prescription drug, it would be a billion-dollar industry to make it available to everyone immediately.”

Dr Norman Rosenthal
Renowned psychiatrist and New York Times best selling author
