$ 2m NIH Grant for Maharishi varsity

Washington, Oct. 25. (PTI): The US Government’s National Institutes of Health has awarded a grant of $ 2 million to medical researchers at the Maharishi University’s Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention, a part of the College of Maharishi Vedic Medicine in the United States.

The grant would help finance a study on how the Transcendental Meditation technique and Maharishi’s Consciousness-based health programmes were useful for both prevention and treatment of heart disease and other chronic disorders in African-Americans, the University said.

The University has been awarded more than $ 20 million in federal funds for medical research since 1988.

The latest grant was from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Yoga and Transcendental Meditation have attracted great interest in the US in recent years.
