Fighting Crime with Meditation

We arrived in Washington D.C. in the Spring of 1993 to lay the groundwork for a unique scientific experiment. The purpose of this experiment was to test the effectiveness of the Transcendental Meditation technique to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in the nation's capital.

Meditators Gather in Washington D.C.:  Graphic

 Over the past 20 years several hundred scientific studies have documented the effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi program (as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi) in improving the health and well being of both the individual and society. A number of those studies documented the "Maharishi effect" (a powerful sociological effect which results in the reduction of crime and an improved quality of life for a city as a whole when only a small number of individuals collectively practice these programs).

The purpose of this research project was to provide a demonstration of this effect to an independent review board of scientists and other concerned citizens. The project sought to demonstrate that when a sufficiently large group collectively practices the TMSidhi program, during which the individual directly experiences the most fundamental level of nature's intelligence in their own self-referral state of awareness, it is possible to enliven the field of natural law, the basis of orderliness and harmony in the environment, to eliminate negativity and create balance in society.

This experiment attracted thousands of participants from around the United States and from 80 countries worldwide who stayed in Washington D.C. for two weeks to two months for the purpose of reducing crime. This enormous project required several hundred staff coordinated by an executive planning committee. Their purpose was to locate suitable housing, meal, and conference accommodations.

Because of the urgency of reducing crime in the nation's capital, this project was organized in only a one month time period. In a city already heavily booked with summer conferences, this presented a unique organizational challenge. Over 30 facilities including numerous luxury hotels and college campuses were utilized to provide the necessary accommodations for over 5,000 people arriving and departing over a two month period.

The results of the project were highly successful. Preliminary crime statistics analyzed by independent researchers indicated that violent crime decreased progressively during the two months of the experiment in Washington D.C. as more conference participants arrived. In addition, other statistics indicated a more coherent and less violent atmosphere as a result of this demonstration project. For example, crisis calls to the Emergency Psychiatric Response Unit for Washington D.C., which had been roughly constant throughout June and July for the past five years, constantly decreased during the demonstration project, dropping 24% altogether by the last week of the project in July. (Editor's Note: Palmtop Paper publisher Hal Goldstein, technical editor Robert Roney, and controller Gordon Stanley participated in this conference for two weeks each.)
