Supaya Wenuganen, who recently earned his doctoral degree from Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in the USA, wrote his PhD dissertation on how the Transcendental Meditation technique influences gene expression and ojas, the life energy of the body.
Dr. Fred Travis, brain researcher and Dean of the Graduate School at MUM, summarized this doctoral research: ''Dr. Wenuganen researched the anti-aging effects of Transcendental Meditation on gene expression and ojas levels. His global gene expression results showed 74 gene expression differences between the older TM group and the older control group. Analysis of these differences identified six important pathways related to health and aging that were affected by the TM program. Close examination of 15 genes from these pathways found especially large effects on four important genes related to health, two of which were specifically related to the anti-aging effects of TM.''
''Dr. Wenuganen's research opened the door to a new frontier of research on the Transcendental Meditation program that could give far deeper insights into the biochemical and physiological mechanisms of enlightenment,'' said Dr. Keith Wallace, co-director of the PhD Program in Physiology.
