What is Meditation?
Meditation is not a method of achieving anything at all. It is peace and blessedness in itself.
~ Great Master Zhiyi
Meditation opens the heart and reveals our deeper relatedness to all beings. It is a practice, an experience and a technique where an individual focuses on one object, sound or thought to attain awareness of oneself and realize a tranquil heart and clarity of mind. Meditation helps silence the mind, enhances self awareness, reduces stress and manage emotions. Meditation instills humility and a non judgmental attitude.
Why should you Meditate?
When we meditate, we realize total rest. Meditation reveals to us what was always there: our values, goodness and calmness of spirit. It is truly ‘connecting to the source‘. Sitting in meditation is nourishment for the body and the soul, obtaining harmony, lightness and awareness of thought and the body itself.
Research shows that practicing Mindfulness and Meditation helps to thicken the gray matter in the pre-frontal cortex responsible for planning and problem solving. Many studies have shown that incorporating these practices in our day to day life can help reduce pain as the areas of the brain that store emotion and memory are less active. Meditation strengthens the neural connections and can change the configurations of these networks as Brain cells go through a process of reorganization, dynamically adapting by creating new pathways inside the brain. As meditation helps you feel calmer, happier and reduce anxiety, so how you think and feel changes the neural connections and thus the brain cells go through a process of reorganizing and adapting to this change by creating new pathways inside the brain.
