Scientific research on university students in Cambodia showed reduced stress and development of intelligence through the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
The study is one of 94 included in Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers Volume 6.
Students who participated needed to take a year of remedial study in preparation for college. The education system had suffered disruption during difficult national situations in Cambodia, and universities found that they had to spend an extra year on remedial training for the large majority of entering students.
University students who began the Transcendental Meditation Programme as part of this first year of study showed a significant increase in intelligence over the course of that academic year, compared to students who did not learn Transcendental Meditation.
The results were the same as numerous other studies—including another study featured in Volume 6 showing increased IQ in university students.
'So again we see—in another very different cultural setting, in east Asia in a very poor country—the same effect: reduced stress and increased intelligence,' 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.
Wide-ranging benefits for students practising Transcendental Meditation have been revealed by numerous studies.
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.
