HISTORY OF

MEDITATION

BENEFITS

Listening to music or taking a walk in the park can all be considered as meditation in a broad sense. But in yoga and Buddhism, meditation generally refers to more formal practices of focusing the mind and observing ourselves in the moment. Meditation is a way to bring the bustling mind to stillness and tranquility, eliminating conscious thought and offering the meditator a unique concentration and “one-pointedness of mind.” An internal balance, mental collectedness and acute awareness of the present moment are all said to be present during meditation. 
Meditation is a simple technique, accessible to all people of the world. There are many types to choose from, so that any one person can find the form that suits him. However, concentrative meditation and mindfulness meditation are the two main types of practices.
