1 THROUGH TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION Scientific Research on the Effects of Consciousness-Based Education Sample Findings

2 THROUGH TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION More than 600 scientific research studies on the technologies of Consciousness-Based Education have been conducted at over 250 universities and research institutes in 33 countries.

3 THROUGH TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION Scientific papers are reprinted from the research journals in 7 volumes:

4 THROUGH TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION The research studies show holistic enrichment of all areas of life— mind, body, behavior, and society. This development results spontaneously from experiencing the basis of all thought and action, Transcendental Consciousness, from where life is fully in harmony with all the laws of nature.
