Meditation is one of the Five Principles of Yoga. It is the practice by which there is constant observation of the mind. It requires you to focus your mind at one point and make your mind still in order to perceive the 'self'. Through the practice of Meditation, you will achieve a greater sense of purpose and strength of will.
By the mid1970s, the body of research on Transcendental Meditation® WWW.TM.ORG showed that meditation produces a coordinated and unique effect in the mind and body, an effect that cannot be “manually” created by brute intention. Within five minutes or so, the body slips into a unique physiological state. This state could never be created by brute intention because it sends us off in opposite directions at once. The body is sent in the direction of sleep’s restfulness-and beyond-while the mind is sent in the direction of waking alertness-and beyond.
How is Holistic Meditation® different from other techniques?
Unlike other techniques, Holistic Meditation® involves no religion believes, chanting, mantras or concentration, contemplation or control of the mind. This makes it easy to learn and enjoyable to practice.
