The student benefit by improvement in memory, greater creativity, reduced anxiety, prevention from addictions, positive behavioural changes, more confidence and positive attitude. The students practicve abstinence from actions which cause harm. They undertake few moral precepts, practicing abstention from killing, stealing, lying, and the use of intoxicants.
