MANTRA MEDITATION

Meditation for every time, place, person
Lord Sri Krsna said: O mighty-armed son of Kunti it is undoubtedly very difficult to curb the restless mind, but it is possible by suitable practice and by detachment. 
Bhagavad Gita 6.35


WHAT IS IT
Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content


WHY DO IT
There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own states of mind – and to change them for the better.  Meditation is a means of transforming the mind, to develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things


HOW TO MEDITATE​​

It may be done sitting, relaxed or in an active way— walking, jogging or daily awareness. Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of that training.

Meditation is best begun with the guidance of a teacher who has practiced it for some years.  The teacher can encourage, inspire and energize you on your inward journey into blissful transcendence.

Meditation is for everybody and is an increasing part of American life  - NCCIH

8% (18 million) adults in USA now use some form of meditation as found in a study conducted from 2007-2012
1.6% of children (927,000) used meditation by 2012.

The literature on meditation suggests that it is a very powerful tool for learning control of attention, regulating emotion, and increasing self-awareness or cultivation of the state called mindfulness. These insights are old. But what is new in the last 15 years or so is scientific data that show that during meditation there are a number of measurable biological changes—for example, in the autonomic nervous system—and the recognition that meditation has the potential to impact on mental and physical health.

​​Meditation increases calm and improves psychological  balance

Meditation has a long history of use for increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological balance, coping with illness, and enhancing overall health and well-being. Mind and body practices focus on the interactions among the brain, mind, body, and behavior.  It helps build internal energy or life force and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity, and forgiveness.
