Improved Mental Ability

Transcendental Consciousness, the unbounded, silent ocean of intelligence, is the source of all mental activity. When we enliven ranscendental Consciousness through the Transcendental Meditation Technique, our mental abilities naturally improve. Improvement in mental functioning corresponds physiologically to use of more of one total brain potential, the consequence of which is the growth of mental abilities.

For example, in this study, increased creativity was found in secondary school students in Canada who learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme. This was shown after only one semester, in contrast to control groups of student who did not yet learn the practice.

Another fundamental ability that develops through the Transcendental Meditation Technique is intelligence, or IQ. The same Canadian study also found increased intelligence in secondary school students, who learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme, in contrast to control groups of students.

Moreover, all students develop their intelligence through the Transcendental Meditation Programme, not Just those who are already highly intelligent. Fox example, in this study, increased intelligence in remedial students was found. These students were taking a special one-year program to prepare them for university studies. Those who learned the Transcendental Meditation Technique, showed increased intelligence, in contrast to a control group, who were also taking the same one-year remedial course, but who did not learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

This finding shows that students who participate in Consciousness Based Education need not be bound by the limitations of the past. Everyone can rise to awaken their full creative intelligence through the regular experience of Transcendental Consciousness, the unlimited inner intelligence within each of us.

This finding is also unique and highly significant for society, because previously it was found that general intelligence stops developing at about age 16. What a waste of human potential for intelligence to stop increasing! But through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation ptogramme, intelligence continues to rise, even among older students, opening more and more possibilities in life for achievement and fulfillment.

What a joy for students to be able to grasp the knowledge they are presented in school more and more easily, and comprehensively, so that see more deeply into their subjects of study, and can use the Knowledge more creatively. As these abilities develop, then naturally students perform better in their classes naturally they achieve more.
