Meditation - Physical Advantages

The most common reason why people start to Meditate is that they want to feel fitter, happier and more energetic. In the past few decades research has been conducted into the health benefits in over 300 universities, hospitals and research centres in over 50 countries. Over 1,000 scientific articles and research reports have been published in over 175 scientific magazines. In fact it is hard to believe that after so many positive results the ordinary media have not paid far more attention to Meditation. Only now, after 30 years, more and more people and doctors begin to appreciate and to experience the advantages of Meditating. In the U.S.A. about 5% of the population now Meditates regularly. We assume that this percentage will grow and that before long we will find the same percentages in Europe. To make things easy for you we have arranged these advantages into three different categories: physical, mental and spiritual.

The surest steadiness of nerves must come from poise of soul and tone of health. You can acquire the first if you will take a few minutes each day for absolute quietness of mind and body, shutting out all ideas of hurry, worry, business and activity of every kind, thinking intensely of, and asserting that you are now in, a state of perfect mental poise.

Meditation by creating space in the mind, serves to create more Prana in the mind. When the mind is brought to a silent and receptive condition, like the expanse of the sky, a new energy comes into being within it that brings about great transformations.
