Heartfulness Research Findings from IIT Delhi & Max Hospitals

Bulletin No: 2019.09 - Saturday, 2 February 2019

Dear sisters and brothers,

1. Research Findings from IIT Delhi & Max Hospitals indicate that Heartfulness keeps the heart healthy

In a first of its kind study conducted by the National Resource Centre for Value Education in Engineering (NRCVEE) at IIT Delhi, and the Department of Non Invasive Cardiology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, New Delhi, the data pointed towards the fact that there was a significant effect of the Heartfulness practices of Cleaning and Meditation on heart rate, blood pressure and heart rate variability, which is an indicator of cardiovascular as well as overall health.

The authors are Narendra Kumar Arya, Kamlesh Singh and Anushree Malik, from the NRCVEE, and Rahul Mehrotra, Head, Department of Non-Invasive Cardiology, Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket, New Delhi. They concluded that 30-minute sessions of Heartfulness Meditation and Cleaning produce significant modulation of the autonomic nervous system towards parasympathetic dominance, so as to favourably moderate basic vital parameters. The results also indicate that these practices helped improve the feeling of overall happiness and well-being following the Meditation sessions without being demanding. The findings of the study have been published in the Indian Heart Journal, the official journal of the Cardiological Society of India (Indian Heart Journal 70 (2018) S50–S55). The study has already been quoted widely in the Indian press.
