Why meditation and what is the science of meditation?
Meditation is a universal and holistic process and requires no belief in anything or in any religion. The state of meditation is the state of total relaxation of the body, mind and heart. The science of meditation deals essentially with the human mind. It proposes innumerable meditation techniques and therapies that lead to an expansion of consciousness.
Meditation techniques help the mind to be calmed to such an extent that it does not intervene in perception - only then do we experience direct perception. Through meditation, we learn transcendence, not control or suppression.
Meditation techniques contribute to a great extent to the well being and health of the meditator. For the root of all problems and illnesses is the mind.
The practice of the science of meditation culminates in the experience of cosmic consciousness or enlightenment. It is the state of no-thought, of pure and boundless awareness, ineffable peace, infinite creativity and virtue.
Meditation and health
Do you know that good health is our birthright and natural state of being? But it has been lost as we live very irrationally.
The complete definition of being in good health means to have a sane mind and a sane heart in a body free from illnesses and diseases. It also means to be centred in one's self. This is precisely what meditation is all about!
Do you know that your body, breathing system, mind and heart need purification? Indeed, the body contains a lot of waste products and toxins that lead to illnesses, stress, fatigue and lack of vigour. Our breathing system is under-utilised as we do not breathe in and out deeply, thus we accumulate toxins in our being. In fact, our breath is the link between our physical body and our subtle layers. The mind is a storehouse of all sorts of impressions, conditionings and suppressions that form our unconsciousness and veil the intellect and other mental faculties. The heart is presently a source of brute emotions like jealousy, attachment, hatred and sadness.
