some selected examples
There are now more than 600 scientific research studies on Transcendental Meditation which have been conducted in 240 universities and hospitals in over 24 countries. More than 120 of these have been published in leading scientific journals.
What has been found is quite conclusive.
The level of rest gained during TM is deeper than any other kind. Regular experience of this profound rest is enough to eliminate the deepest stress.
The resulting benefits are profound for both mental and physical health and general well-being.
