Meditation involves achieving a state of ‘thoughtless awareness’ in which the excessive stress-producing activity of the mind is neutralized without reducing alertness and effectiveness. It is the art of focusing 100% of your attention in one area.  The practice comes with a myriad of well-publicized health benefits including increased concentration, decreased anxiety, and a general feeling of happiness. In today’s world where stress catches on faster than the eye can see or the mind can perceive, meditation is no more a luxury. Some say it is a necessity. To be unconditionally happy and to have peace of mind, we need to tap into the power of meditation.
