On 28 April 2018 CNBC reported: Hedge funds and Transcendental Meditation seem to live in opposite realms. But not for Ray Dalio. ''Transcendental Meditation has probably been the single most important reason for whatever success I've had,'' says Dalio, the founder, co-chief investment officer and co-chairman of Bridgewater Associates, the largest hedge fund in the world with more than $160 billion in assets under management. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the fields of management and health.
'It is certainly the greatest gift I can give anyone,' Dalio, 68, writes on Facebook.
Dalio says in his book ''Principles'' that he learned the practice after the Beatles famously studied Transcendental Meditation in India in 1968. It allows him to think more clearly and creatively, he says. 'It helps slow things down so that I can act calmly, even in the face of chaos, just like a ninja in a street fight,' Dalio writes.
Transcendental Meditation ''wakes up the creative centers in the brain,'' says Bob Roth, author of Strength in Stillness: The Power of Transcendental Meditation, in conversation with David Brancaccio, the host and senior editor of Marketplace Morning Report.
