That, Over 600 scientific research studies conducted during the past 35 years at more than 250 independent universities and research institutes in thirty-three countries have shown that the practice of transcending benefits all areas of individual life—mind, body, behavior, and society. Included in this research is compelling evidence that even a small group of practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation program—as few as 1% of a population—create a positive influence on society reducing crime, accidents and other negative trends. This overall increase of positivity in societal trends arises from the increasing purity in collective consciousness of the entire population created by hundreds of individuals experiencing the pure silence and peace of Transcendental Consciousness. This phenomenon, first discovered by scientists in 1974, was named the Maharishi Effect in honor of Maharishi who had predicted it more than a decade earlier. The discovery of the Maharishi Effect by modern science established a new formula for the creation of an ideal peaceful society, free from crime and problems.
