meditation-image-4According 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.

Decreases Crime Rates

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

meditation-image-5A paper published in The Journal of Management & Social Science indicates that practicing Transcendental Meditation has the potential to reduce crime rates. The study focused on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s TM-Sidhi program, which was specifically developed to prevent large-scale conflict and crime. Mahesh’s program is based on the belief that societal stress can lead to national and international conflict, as well as crime and terrorism. The study hypothesizes that Transcendental Meditation can reduce these societal stressors, and as a result, decrease the violence associated with those stressors, including crime. Researchers documented notable reductions in crime rates following the completion of the program, suggesting the success of Transcendental Meditation in decreasing crime.
