What is Meditation?
Meditation is a body and mind practice. The word ‘meditation’ is derived from two Latin words: ‘meditari’ (to think, to dwell upon, to exercise the mind), and ‘mederi’ (to heal). The purpose of meditation is to calm your body, quiet your mind, and eventually, achieve inner peace.

Meditation is not something new. It is in fact a natural state of mind that we are born with. Meditation offers innumerable benefits for your body, mind and soul.  Meditation has long history of use for increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological and emotional balance, coping with illnesses and ailments, and thus enhancing overall well-being and quality of life.
 
 



Basic Elements of Meditation Practice
Most of the Meditation Practice consists of the four common elements as followed: -

1. Quiet Area (peaceful area or place with least distractions)

2. Comfortable Posture (either sitting cross legged, in lotus pose, or lying down comfortably)

3. A Focus of Attention (an object, body sensation, breath or others)

4. An Open Attitude (allowing any thoughts/distractions to come and go freely and naturally)
By quieting the mind and deeply relaxing the body, you will experience deep state of inner peace and tranquility, and ultimately, higher state of awareness.
 
 
 
Why is Meditation Important?

All of us have a choice about what we want to think and feel. Meditation empowers us to take control of our own lives by taking responsibility of our own state of mind and change them for the better.
Central to meditation is the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is not something religious, but simply about paying attention to what is going on around us, to us, inside us during our everyday lives, or in other words, being present or living in the present moment, with an attitude of having interest, exploration and awareness.  Being mindful is simply about being more aware of our surroundings.

To achieve the state of mindfulness, we simply need to learn and train ourselves to relax or calm our body and mind.  Meditation allows us to attain deep relaxation and at the same time keeping our mind calm yet alert.   Effortlessly, through meditation practice, our conscious mind will be able to settle down. When our conscious mind settles down, it lets go of all worries, tensions and stress, and eventually centers itself in the present moment, allowing us to be and live in the present moment to the fullest.

The experience and journey of meditation can be both fruitful and joyful. Practiced on a daily basis, meditation will give you profound results physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
