Scientific research has shown the wide-ranging benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in a business setting.
One study, originally published in the journal Anxiety, Stress, and Coping in 1993, is among nearly 100 research studies included in Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers Volume 6.
The study compared a group of individuals in the automotive industry who learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme with a control group that did not learn the technique.
Over a three-month period, those who began the practice of Transcendental Meditation showed greater satisfaction with their professional and personal lives.
The control group 'actually showed increased dissatisfaction in their lives—coming from stress in the work place,' said Dr Michael Dillbeck, an expert on Transcendental Meditation research, who is one of the editors of Collected Papers Volume 5, and the editor of Volume 6.
The same study showed a broad range of findings in those practising Transcendental Meditation including increased effectiveness of employees, more happy behaviour, and reduced physical complaints.
In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to feature Dr Dillbeck's report highlighting studies from Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers Volume 6.
