The purpose of meditation is to cultivate those states of mind that are conducive to peace and well-being, and to eradicate those that aren’t.
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realise some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity, forgiveness and peace.
Meditation is beneficial both spiritually and physically. It assists in clearing the mind, connecting with the Spirit, and eases health concerns, such as high blood pressure, depression and anxiety.
