A statistical meta-analysis of 146 independent study results found that the Transcendental Meditation program is significantly more effective in reducing trait anxiety than concentration or contemplation, or other techniques. Reference: Journal of Clinical Psychology 45: 957–974, 1989.


University students who learned the TM-Sidhi program, in comparison to control students from another university, increased significantly on three measures of personal development and psychological health—increased creativity, increased autonomy, and increased intrinsic spirituality. The TM-Sidhi program participants also improved significantly on an overall measure of well-being and a measure of psychological integration in comparison to the control students. Reference: Modern Science and Vedic Science 1: 471–487, 1987.


Patients suffering from post-traumatic stress problems who learned the Transcendental Meditation program showed significant reduction in depression after four months, in contrast to others who were randomly assigned to receive psychotherapy. Reference: Journal of Counseling and Development 64: 212–215, 1985.


Individuals who practiced the Transcendental Meditation technique showed significantly increased skin resistance during the practice, in contrast to controls. Skin resistance is an electrophysiological measure of calmness or restfulness. Reference: Physiology & Behavior 35: 591–595, 1985.
