Charities in more than 100 countries world-wide are offering Maharishi's programmes. These charities, liaising with other like-minded organisations and charities such as the David Lynch Foundation are bringing about remarkable changes in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
Worldwide, tens of thousands of the most vulnerable young people have learned Transcendental Meditation through various grants. The benefits are wide-ranging from reduction in stress and stress-related disorders, reduced substance abuse, reduced anxiety, hyperactivity, and emotional problems, increased learning ability, improved memory and improved academic performance.
Other global outreach programmes are having similarly inspiring results:
- work with the homeless
- prison programmes to reduce recidivism
- war veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
