Meditation has countless benefits including improving health, increased brain function, and gaining spiritual wisdom. Physiological benefits include reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol, strengthening the heart, increasing blood flow, strengthening the immune system and relaxing the nervous system. Psychological benefits include increased intuition, self-confidence, tolerance and wisdom.

Meditation can be defined as focused or deep reflection. It may incorporate observation and control of the breath, imagery, mantras, and sitting postures. As the body becomes deeply relaxed, the mind transcends all mental activity to experience the simplest form of awareness, where consciousness is open to achieving greater spiritual clarity.

Other benefits of meditation include enhancing creativity and effectiveness, reducing stress and helping the body defend against illness.
