Something dramatic is happening in America. Just about everyone in the nation is waking up to a very simple, profound fact: Prevention is always better than cure. Chronic fatigue, anxiety, high blood pressure, heart disease, many forms of cancer, even crime and violence are far more effectively and cost-effectively prevented than they are treated or cured.

And something else is happening, too. In the 9 years since Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation was first published, more and more doctors and other health care professionals, business and community leaders, educators, and members of the general public have come to appreciate the enormous practical benefits of Transcendental Meditation. They are endorsing the use of this simple technique in prevention-oriented programs to reduce stress and disease, improve health, reduce crime and violence, and improve the quality of life for the individual and society.

The old saying is a wise one: "There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come." Transcendental Meditation is much more than an idea -- it is a powerful, proven technology to unfold our most precious natural resource -- the human mind. It is a technology whose time has come. The whole of society is already the better for it -- the future will be even brighter.
