Researchers at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA have made important discoveries about the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for brain functioning and heart health.
Renowned psychiatrist and author Dr Norman Rosenthal highlighted these findings in his commencement address as part of his third 'pearl of wisdom': Be open to new possibilities'.*
He quoted George Bernard Shaw: 'Some people look at the world as it is and ask, ''Why?'' I look at the world as it never was, and ask, ''Why not?'' '
'The outstanding researchers at this university have asked similar questions,' Dr Rosenthal said.
'Could Transcendental Meditation affect how the brain works?
'Dr Fred Travis has asked ''Why not?'' and that question has led to his fascinating discoveries.
'Could Transcendental Meditation prevent heart disease?
'Dr Robert Schneider asked ''Why not?'' And as a result we have his amazing papers describing the effects of Transcendental Meditation on blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and mortality.
'So I recommend that you be open to wisdom wherever you find it—and to seeing things in new ways. It's paid off for me, so I pass that pearl on to you.'
