Meditation is a devotional practice leading to deep contemplation in which the mind becomes attentive enough in becoming thoughtless . Being thoughtless while sitting in a correct posture by simply closing the eyes would slowly transcend and establish a co-ordial link with the body and mind with the infinite intelligence. Here the infinite intelligence refers to the universe through which the “cosmic energies” flows through the body when there is a proper union of body and mind, such a blissful state is called meditative state and the art of performing it with mastery is called Meditation. Meditation has a rich essence of Indian heritage and also the gift of ancient Indian sages like “Maharishi Patanjali” the pioneer of Ayurveda and yoga. Practicing meditation helps in achieving individuality and vitality which brings within oneself the inherent extra-ordinary capabilities of farsightedness thoughts, views and also improves the working capacities of a person without getting tired. Performing Meditation should be an integral part of human being as it has numerous benefits for the mankind.
Mastering the meditation process increases self determination, fosters creativity and working capabilities which in turns increases the willpower. And at all circumstances procrastination is avoided.
