The Transcendental Meditation technique is taught throughout the U.S. under the auspices of Maharishi Foundation USA, a nonprofit educational organization exempt from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Course fees are used exclusively to further our non-profit mission.
Maharishi Foundation encourages and supports independent academic institutions to carry out scientific research into the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation program and its advanced techniques. More than 300 scientific studies, conducted at independent universities and institutions in 33 countries, and published in over 100 of the world’s leading peer-reviewed scientific journals, have already documented the wide-ranging benefits for every aspect of life: mind, body, behavior, and society.
Our goal is to make the TM technique available to everyone. Each local TM Center offers a payment plan, as well as grants and scholarships for those facing financial hardship. Over the past five years, full TM scholarships have been given to more than 250,000 at-risk students and others in need through partnerships with other non-profit organizations and foundations.
