Enlightened Life – Nurture The Environment
A few minutes of meditation daily dissolves stress and tension, and opens your heart to all living beings and the world around you.
Align your awareness with the intelligence and creativity that is everywhere in Nature, and you will begin to live in harmony with all living creatures and your environment.
A scientific study found that 24 US cities, in which 1% of the population learned TM, had decreased crime rate trends compared to control cities – matched for geographic region, population, college population, and crime rate.
The powerful, stress-reducing effect of the Transcendental Meditation technique has a calming, “spill-over” effect in the surrounding population.
TM calms negativity in the environment
The results show that 24 cities in which 1% of the population had been instructed in the Transcendental Meditation programme by 1972 displayed decreased crime rates during the next year (1973) and decreased crime rate trends during subsequent years (1972-1977) in comparison to 1967-1972, in contrast to control cities matched for geographic region, population, college population, and crime rate.

When individuals practice TM together in groups, research has found a dramatic and immediate reduction in societal stress, crime, violence, and conflict—and an increase in coherence, positivity, and peace in society as a whole.
Even though there are many sincere individuals dedicated to the cause of peace, establishing peace requires more than simply adopting a psychological belief in peace.
It can only be achieved through a transformation at the very deepest level of the human mind and through a corresponding change in the physiology.
Maharishi explained that when the mind and body are deeply at peace, then thought, speech, and action will spontaneously radiate an influence of harmony into the environment.
“A simple cost-effective solution to many of the social problems we face”
“I have been following the research on the Maharishi Effect as it has developed over the last twenty years.
“There is now a strong and coherent body of evidence showing that the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme provides a simple cost-effective solution to many of the social problems we face today. This research and its conclusions are so strong that it demands attention from those responsible for government policy.”
