Abstract: Physical fitness can be improved by regular physical activity and transcendental meditation. A comparative study between them is elusive. Thirty young adults were divided into three groups of 10 each serving as control, exercise and meditating subjects doing respective techniques for 12 weeks. A significant fall was observed only in heart rate, vital capacity and PEFR. Changes, though insignificant, in respiratory rate, blood pressure, maximum oxygen consumption, haemoglobin and cholesterol were also observed indicating the role of both the techniques in physical fitness.
