A group of distinguished physicians in Sweden has contributed their expertise in presenting Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme on a website that offers (in both Swedish and English) a wealth of knowledge about the extensive scientific research findings on this 'scientifically well documented method for preventing and treating stress'.

The website lists key findings in the areas of stress reduction, the effects of Transcendental Meditation on cardiovascular disease, and how Transcendental Meditation 'causes a unique and profound change in brain functioning towards increasing orderliness and coherence'.

Another finding mentioned is the 2001 study that showed seniors' medical costs are reduced by 70 per cent with the practice of Transcendental Meditation.

The website also features an article by Jaan Suurk├╝la, M.D.—'A new approach to human development: Growing integration of brain activity by way of a unique fourth state of consciousness'—regarding indications that Transcendental Meditation gives rise to a unique, natural state of consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness (TC), the least excited state of consciousness, formerly unknown in modern science.

Examples of scientific research charts are shown that include the brain wave coherence produced by practice of Transcendental Meditation, decreased anxiety in traumatic stress patients, and the normalization of stress-related hypertension.

In the conclusion, the physicians state that 'Transcendental Meditation provides a new and formerly unknown and remarkably effective possibility for human development,' adding that 'the purpose of Transcendental Meditation is to develop full self-actualization. In this state the deep peace of transcendental consciousness is present along with the normal waking state.'
