Doctors and consultants at a leading medical university hospital in Pakistan have learned Transcendental Meditation. The head of the psychiatry department has started to refer his patients to the Transcendental Meditation centre for instruction.
Another physician, a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation, who specializes in treating migraine headaches, prescribes the meditation technique to his patients. One patient whom he had been treating for migraines for four months, without success, reported an immediate improvement after learning Transcendental Meditation. The specialist now prescribes Transcendental Meditation to other patients, to reduce problems and improve their health through the regular practice of this simple, natural technique. He also asked Dr Ashok Kumar, director of the Transcendental Meditation programme in Pakistan, to promote the practice in his community.
Mind science experts, yoga teachers, and experts in neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)* in Pakistan have been learning Transcendental Meditation. NLP experts, after hearing about the technique, realized they did not have the valuable experience of transcending provided by Transcendental Meditation. A group came to Karachi and took the TM course; now they want to attend an advanced course to become certified as teachers of Transcendental Meditation.
At the Transcendental Meditation centre in Karachi, two lectures were recently given by Dr Robert Wynne, an international administrator of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes for Pakistan. The lectures were attended by many doctors, students, and teachers, all of whom expressed interest in knowing more about the technique.
Plans are developing in Pakistan for potential scientific research studies on the application of Transcendental Meditation in several areas, including improving quality of life for heart patients and young people with physical disabilities; and also rehabilitation for young people with substance abuse problems.
* An approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy developed in the United States in the 1970s.
