An ordinary person may consider meditation as a worship or prayer. But that’s not so. Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. “Watching your breath” is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation feeling the desert breeze caress your face. . . As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation.

Meditation is not a technique but a way of life. Meditation means ‘a cessation of the thought process.’ It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns . The observer (one who is doing meditation) realizes that all the activity of the mind is reduced to one.

Studies have shown that meditating regularly can help relieve symptoms in people who suffer from illness and chronic pain. MIT and Harvard researchers have found a possible explanation for this phenomenon.

Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex—brain waves in the stress-prone right frontal cortex move to the calmer left frontal cortex. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.
