Meditation is not a phenomenon that makes you different or a better person, but it offers an awareness perspective for aligning mind and body. As a Guru said, “the meditation dissolves the invisible walls that unawareness has built”. It is more of an exercise of the mind, like what other body parts experience in workouts. In a way, you learn to witness yourself in ‘real-time’ without being judgmental.

Buddha was once asked, “What have you gained from meditation”? He replied. “NOTHING! However, I lost many things! I lost Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of old age, and more important Death.” It sums up the whole concept of meditation.

The idea of meditation is to have peace with yourself for some time by isolating your mind from your body.
