"Die Transzendentale Meditation ist für mich das Mittel, zu meinem Selbst zurückzukommen. Sie gibt Ruhe, Festigkeit und Einsicht in das, was um einen herum passiert. Für mich arbeitet die TM auf der grundlegenden Ebene von Geist und Körper und integriert sie beide mehr und mehr"
Pieter Koridon, Manager für Management-Entwicklung, IBM Holland
If you are a California
lawyer, you can learn TM and have the course
count towards your professional training. All
lawyers in California must participate in a
number of further training courses. The
lawyers’ professional body has recognised TM
in this way because they have seen the
advantages in the work place of practising TM.
Lawyers who are free of stress and tensions
perform better and are more successful.
Meditation in the Workplace
USA Fortune 100 Company
|R. W. Montgomery, Jr., former CEO, H.A. Montgomery Co. on Benefits for the Company: "Over a six-year period, the Transcendental Meditation program was introduced to over 70% of our managers and employees, and they were encouraged to meditate on company time at the plant. As a result, productivity, sales, and profitability all improved dramatically, the creativity of our research department went up, and absenteeism dropped sharply, as did sick days and injuries. The TM program paid for itself in two months on the basis of reduced absenteeism alone. The TM program has been my best business decision." R.W. "Buck" Montgomery was looking to turn around his Detroit-based chemical manufacturing firm, the 40-year old H.A. Montgomery Company. Buck explored different stress managment and employee development programs. After much research he introduced the Transcendental Meditation program throughout the company. The impact was immediate. Productivity improved substantially. Absenteeism dropped sharply as did sick days, and drug and alcohol abuse. Sales per employee climbed 120% in two years and profitability soared 520%. Buck later sold the company and now is a top executive at USA Global Link,Inc., a rapidly growing international telecommunications company.
Burton A. Dole, Jr. Former
Chairman and CEO, Puritan-Bennett Corp.
Leading manufacturer of respiratory products: "The
key to success in today's world is innovation,
creativity -- beyond anything else. If you create
products and services that are clearly better than
what your competitors produce, you're going to
succeed in today's world. Having the ability to
enhance one's own creativity as well as that of
one's employees seems to me to be the ultimate
responsibility of a manager within a company. And
the Transcendental Meditation program allows that
creativity enhancement to take place beyond
anything I've ever seen."
Steve Rubin Chairman and CEO, United Fuels International, Inc. International energy brokerage firm: "For me the experience of settled inner wakefulness and expanded awareness during the Transcendental Meditation technique is the real foundation for successful decision making.
meditating I have the mental clarity and alertness for
laser-like focus on the details and, at the same time,
for broad comprehension so I don't get lost in the
details. I find myself continuously growing in insight
and intuition, as well as in the ability to focus and
analyze. Over my years in business, the TM technique
has been a real competitive advantage."
"Seit wir die TM in unseren
Firmen eingeführt haben, erfahren wir, dass
Wirtschaftlichkeit und Produktivität in einem
harmonischen Umfeld zunehmen. Unsere Firmen
expandieren ohne Stress. Ich kann die TM für einen
schnellen Erfolg nur empfehlen."
Indian Boardrooms Become
"Transcendental Meditation is practised during working hours twenty minutes twice a day. Apart from improving performance, this has helped the progress of the company. Workers now work only 7 hours but produce 10 hours worth of output. Before learning Transcendental Meditation in 8 hours of work the productivity was equivalent to only 6 hours -- an increase of productivity by 57%. In addition, there was a marked reduction in stress, reduced absenteeism, and the workers reported less fatigue, worries, and anxiety. We have found a more relaxed, peaceful and comfortable atmosphere and working climate in our companies."
"Mehr als 25.000 Menschen
haben bei uns die Transzendentale Meditation
erlernt. Sie hat uns viel näher zusammengebracht.
Wir fühlen uns bereichert, leistungsfähiger und in
der Lage, besser zu arbeiten."
"After having practised
Transcendental Meditation twice daily for about 20
minutes each time, during the last 6 months, I am
much more relaxed even during moments of high
pressure. My memory is also better. My relationship
with my family members and colleagues in the office
has substantially improved. The so called factor of
luck or good fortune is even more evident in a
number of critical situations. I am over 60 and have
been practising yoga for the last 44 years. Despite
this, TM has certainly been a great help in
substantially improving the quality of my
life." -- Shashi Ullal President and Managing
Director, Hughes Escorts Communication LTD
"We have chosen MCDP to
achieve a well-balanced personality development of
our employees. Those of us who have practised TM in
SRF have reported many benefits-better alertness and
calmness as well as freedom from many stress-related
health problems. All these will doubtless improve
harmony and teamwork in our organisation, besides
improving the lives of our people." --Ramanathan
President HRD, Sri Ram Fibres LTD
"Transcendental Meditation has
been very helpful to me in solving business as well
as personal problems. I find that the practice makes
me feel deeply relaxed, and my attitude has become
more positive. I am sure that Transcendental
Meditation will be instrumental in bringing joy and
happiness in the lives of many more people." --
Ratan Jindal Managing Director, Jindal Strips
The benefits of TM for business
has hit the headlines recently in Israel. An article
in Business, the weekly supplement of the daily
business newspaper Globes quotes factory owner
Alkex Zeltser who has been practising TM for 18
years. "I gained power to come to terms with the
unending stream of problems," he says. "As a result
the factory grew a hundred-fold - from a small
factory laden with difficulties to a thriving
factory which serves some of the largest industries
in the country."
article describes some of the benefits gained by staff
practising TM: decreased stress and anxiety, increased
dynamism and alertness, leading to increase
productivity. "Any self-respecting business cannot
afford to ignore a technology which creates such
effects," says the paper. Edna Ramot, General
Manager of the International Congress Hall in
Jerusalem, describes TM: "It is fun, it is
wonderful. I recommend it to everyone."
From the In-house magazine of the Sony Corporation
The study evaluated 447
participating managers and employees in comparison to

substantial improvements in physical and mental
health, including significant reductions in anxiety,
insomnia, depression, emotional instability, physical
complaints, smoking, and digestive problems.
"Durch die TM nimmt die
integrierte Funktionsweise der gesamten
Gehirnphysiologie zu. Dies hilft sehr, geistigen
Druck und Anspannungen abzubauen und Kreativität zu
entwickeln. Eine Methode zu haben, die die geistige
Ruhe wiederherstellt, ist in dieser Zeit ein großes

Alternative Sentencing Regime" in Australia

programme in Geraldton, near Perth, Western Australia. This followed the successful visit to Australia of two of the judges involved in the American Project.
Minister of Peru supports TM in Schools
Peruvian Prime Minister Victor Joy-Way has endorsed a joint venture between Ricardo Palma University and the Maharishi Institute of science and Technology for Peru which will include the teaching of TM in Peruvian schools. "A
successful and integrated life in the new millennium will require education to fully develop the consciousness of every student", said Dr Ivan Rodriguez Chavez, Chancellor of the university. This venture follows the successful introduction of TM into the curriculum of three schools in Puno.
