“Meditation is a continuous flow of perception or thought like the flow of water in a river.” Swami Vishnu-Devananda
Life is increasingly becoming emotionally, mentally and physical exhausting. Everybody nowadays seems to be so busy with their work and their life at home that they tend to forget to devote some time to just sit back, relax and unwind. They instead build up stress in them. Too much stress then can cause discomfort on the affected person, from a simple headache to cardiovascular ailments.
That is where the importance of Meditation comes in. Meditation is one of the Five Principles of Yoga. Practicing Meditation Techniques together with the Asanas and Pranayamas can give the one who practices it a number of different benefits such as creating a balance in the functions of both sides of the brain, stimulation of the entire nervous system, improved circulation, and even an improvement of one’s memory.
