Meditation

Meditation is the practice of turning your attention to a single point of reference. It can involve focusing on the breath, on bodily sensations, or on a word or phrase known as a mantra. In other words, meditation means turning your attention away from distracting thoughts and focusing on the present moment. Meditating is deceptively simple.

The rest in meditation is deeper than the deepest sleep that you can ever have. When the mind becomes free from agitation, is calm and serene and at peace, meditation happens.

The benefits of meditation are manifold. It is an essential practice for mental hygiene. A calm mind, good concentration, clarity of perception, improvement in communication, blossoming of skills and talents, an unshakeable inner strength, healing, the ability to connect to an inner source of energy, relaxation, rejuvenation, and good luck are all-natural results of meditating regularly.

In today’s world where stress catches on faster than the eye can see or the mind can perceive, meditation is no more a luxury. It helps us have peace of mind and experience unconditional happiness.

Meditation effortlessly allows the conscious mind to settle down. And when the mind settles down, it lets go of all tension and stress and centres itself in the present moment.
