Scientific research has shown development of intelligence in university students who practise the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
The study, originally published in a scientific journal in 1991, is one of 94 included in Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers, Volume 6.
'University students practising Transcendental Meditation showed a significant increase in intelligence, performance, and IQ score over the course of two years, compared to controls,' 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.
In the control group of students not practising Transcendental Meditation, there was no change. This finding was as expected.
'Measures of abstract intelligence do not usually change after adolescence—and these were university students,' Dr Dillbeck explained.
This study is important, Dr Dillbeck continued, indicating that students can learn Transcendental Meditation and actually grow in intelligence. Dr Dillbeck recommended that parents and students consider schools that offer all of the diverse benefits of Transcendental Meditation and Consciousness-Based Education.
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.
