Reduces Levels of Suicide

In a paper published in The Journal of Management & Social Science, practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) was found to reduce levels of suicide. The paper focuses on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s TM-Sidhi program, developed to prevent war and terrorism. The program emphasizes that societal stress leads to war, terrorism, and crime, and hypothesizes that TM can decrease this societal stress, and as a result, decrease war-related consequences. Suicide, an effect of societal stress, was one of the positive changes found to result from the TM-Sidhi program. Military personnel who participated in the program showed noticeable reductions in suicides, suggesting the success of Transcendental Meditation in this area.
