Benefits of Meditation

 

What comes to your mind when you hear the word “meditation?” Saffron clad clothes…something mystical…a Zen Master…or what great gurus do, isn’t it?

In reality, every time you focus on something and anything whole-heartedly and pointedly is meditation. Being conscious about every aspect of one’s life – the mind, body and soul is meditation. One does not need to be a special person to meditate or be equipped with extraordinary powers to reach that state – all you need to begin meditation is to free your mind of clutter!

When the body and mind are in sync, we are naturally relaxed, alert, open, and aware, and we experience ourselves and the world in a direct, unmediated way, without conceptual filters. It is this direct experience of the fullness, vitality, and splendor of life that is the gift of meditation.
