Quote by Dr Noel Bairey Merz about the selection of the TM 
techniquein medical research

Thought you would appreciate this statement by a non-meditating 
researcher about why the TM technique was chosen for their federally-
funded research study. This quote appeared last week in one of the 
many articles published on the release of new NIH-funded research on 
TM and heart disease.


"Transcendental Meditation is one of the techniques that has been 
studied the most, and the most rigorously, in randomized controlled 
trials. ...We chose Transcendental Meditation because it's highly 
protocolized and standardized, whereas many of the others aren't. 
For instance, Transcendental Meditation is trademarked; you have to 
be a certified instructor to teach it. The other reason we selected 
TM was that there were prior studies that suggested a very 
consistent physiological response on blood pressure."
