Transcendental Meditation® Research
More than 380 peer-reviewed research studies on the TM technique have been published in over 160 scientific journals. These studies were conducted at many US and international universities and research centers, including Harvard Medical School, Stanford Medical School, Yale Medical School, and UCLA Medical School.   The scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is the largest and strongest body of research in the world on any program to develop human potential. The more than 500 scientific studies conducted at 200 independent universities and institutions in 33 countries and published in over 100 leading scientific journals have documented that this technology benefits every sphere of life: physiological, psychological, sociological, and ecological.   The findings in each area of study have been replicated many times, and meta analyses, which are the most quantitatively rigorous means to review a body of research, have found a high degree of consistency of the results1 . Studies using the most sophisticated, rigorous research methodologies that are designed to prove causality have strongly verified and extended preliminary findings.   This demonstrates that Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program causes the wide range of benefits in mental potential, health, and social behavior.   -- Orme-Johnson, David, Modern Science and Vedic Science, Volume 6, Number 1, 1995, ©1995 Maharishi International University
