On 13 May 2007 The Herald reported:
The Transcendental Meditation Programme is a scientifically validated means to improve every area of life. An editorial in The Herald describes benefits enjoyed by the national professional chess champion in Britain.
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 education.
In the article, the author describes how TM helped him as a student. He states: 'I learned Transcendental Meditation (TM) in 1998, while a student at Oxford University, six months before my final exams.' He goes on to say that he was 'struck by how easy it was to practise the technique. I suddenly had more energy, concentrated better, and felt warmer towards other people. Shortly afterwards, I earned a first-class degree, which had not previously been on the cards. In fact, TM was by far the best thing I learned at Oxford.'
In the article the author remarks on the cost of learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme and its exclusive nature. The author also remarks on how it contributes to the success of his career. 'I am now a professional chess player, the current British champion, and wouldn't dream of playing a serious game without meditating beforehand. After meditating I feel calm, centred and ready to compete—but, more importantly, the technique allows me to ''just play'' and enjoy the game without worrying about the result. These kinds of positive effects are well-known to thousands of practitioners of TM and have been documented in more than 600 scientific journals.'
TM also benefits health, the author notes, stating that 'TM is a singularly powerful way to dissolve stress, and it also reduces blood pressure and the severity of heart disease. It is not surprising, therefore, that the US government has invested $20m to further investigate the health benefits.'
