The results have given some interesting findings. Meditators did significantly better in academic performance compared to non-meditators. This seems to be true irrespective of the sex of the child and the class in which he/she is studying. 1. Meditating children have better academic achievement than non¬ meditating children. 2. A large percentage of parents of meditating children found that their children had better self-help skills, more positive personality traits and less negative traits than parents of non-meditating children. 3. Meditators sleep fewer hours than non-meditators. They also have fewer sleep problems than the latter group. 4. Attentional skills are better for meditating students, as compared to non-meditating students as judged by teachers. 5. Emotional, behavioural, and health problems were fewer for meditators as compared to non-meditators as judged by teachers. 6. Personality characteristics as judged by teachers were found to be more positive for meditators as compared to non-meditators. Meditation as an approach to preventing stress may be made as a part of curriculum in schools from primary classes itself and thereby developing, a problem free society.
