Summary: Based upon a wide spectrum of physiological data on TM made available by previous research, the authors hypothesize that meditation is an integrated response with peripheral circulatory and metabolic changes subserving increased central nervous activity, and discuss probable objective markers of clear experience of samadhi or pure consciousness as the subjectively identifiable goal of meditation.

Summary: The fundamental principle of Vedic Physiology is that consciousness is the basis of physiology. This paper outlines and reviews the expression of consciousness at each level of the physiology and reviews research on physiological correlates of higher states of consciousness developed through the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program.

|Reversal of Aging Through the Transcendental
Biological Age measures how old a person is physiologically. As a group, long term meditators who had been practicing Maharishi TM program for more than 5 years were physiologically 12 years younger than their chronological age, as measured by lower blood pressure, and better near point vision and auditory discrimination. Short term meditators were physiologically 5 years younger than their chronological age. The study statistically controlled for the effects of diet and exercise.
