The Sri Lanka Guardian published an article (6 March 2011) by Jerry Yellin and Dr. David Leffler titled: Find the Best Way for Combating PTSD in the Sri Lankan Military. They cite scientific research showing that all meditation practices are not the same and different meditation techniques use different procedures which have different effects on brain functioning. For this reason, they urge Sri Lankan leaders to conduct a study utilizing a random assignment protocol to investigate not only the present modalities of PTSD treatment currently used by the Sri Lankan military, but also a modality, which has already been extensively scientifically validated to reduce stress – the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique.
