All over the world people experience that regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, brings many benefits to their lives. Students experience that they learn more easily, do better academically, feel more relaxed and confident, and feel happier within themselves and with their friends. Teachers see their students improving in their subjects, becoming more creative and alert in class, kinder to other students, and less easily upset. Parents notice their sons and daughters becoming more positive, more calm and helpful, and more focused on their schoolwork. School principals report a more settled, harmonious school atmosphere, with fewer disruptions, and students less absent from school. For the past 40 years, scientists have been researching the benefits of the regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, and its advanced practice, the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Program, for individuals and society. This booklet draws from the more than 600 scientific research studies, conducted at over 250 universities and research institutes in 33 countries, which validate the wide-ranging benefits of this technology of consciousness in the areas of mental potential, health, behavior and world peace. Part I of this booklet discusses (1) what the Transcendental Meditation technique is, and how the body and mind develop when we practice it; (2) how the advanced TM-Sidhi program develops the habit of thinking and acting from the field of our full potential; and (3) how group practice of both these techniques benefits the environment. Part II of this booklet lists and illustrates scientific research findings on these programs, showing benefits for many areas of life, with a special section describing research on students practicing the technique. At the end of the booklet is the list of the scientific journals where the findings described in this booklet have been published. An insightful and essential resource for any educator.
