The Journal of Conflict Resolution reported that when employed on a broad scale within a military context, transcendental meditation has the ability to reduce societal tensions that often lead to war. This meditative technique is known as invincible defence technology, or IDT, when used in a military setting. The program had clear positive effects on those who were trained in IDT. During the Lebanon War in the 1980s, IDT practices had a clear statistical impact on the population, demonstrating a significant reduction in war-related deaths and injuries. Researchers predict that this process could be used with any military, in any part of the world to facilitate prolonged peace in lieu of involvement in future wars.
