According to results published in multiple journals, meditation helps improve war-related effects such as contributes to fewer crimes. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi developed a military-focused Transcendental Meditation program called Invincible Defence Technology (IDT) whose goal was to reduce war-related conflict caused by society-wide stressors. IDT aims to reduce these large-scale societal stressors with the ultimate objective of reducing the war and terrorism-associated crime that is associated with those stressors. Upon completion of the IDT program, researchers found marked reductions in societal stress, resulting in diminished crime rates among the population. When administered to a population, IDT caused a dramatic reduction in war-related crime and conflict, demonstrating its crime-combating effects.
