  • When you practise meditation each day, then you grow in your ability to be conscious of your thinking and emotions. This is a very great benefit, because when you can observe the reaction of 'your personality', then you have leverage to make changes in your conditioned behaviors.
  • Meditation reduces stress.
  • Meditation is good for peace of mind.
  • Mental stress and tension gives rise to so many physical disorders meditation helps one to come out of it.
  • Meditation helps in concentration of mind.
  • Meditation is very important. It has a lofty purpose - to take us from this world full of suffering and misery into the world of never - ending happiness, joy and bliss.
  • Meditation is also a method of pure discipline, that we must follow discreetly and if we follow it in a proper way we will find what we are looking for in ourselves.
  • The true purpose of meditation is to achieve something which is truly permanent, everything in this universe is temporary.
