Information about Meditation
‘Aummmmmmm…….’ Just the mere sound of this single word evokes positive vibrations throughout the body. ‘Aum’ Chanting is a form of Yogic meditation or Dhyana. The practice of Dhyana or Meditation which dates back to several centuries, is more relevant today than ever before. This ancient wisdom which belonged to our sages has helped not only those who seek spirituality but also those who simply wish to unwind. The profound idea of looking inwards and connecting with oneself has helped generations achieve a sense of calm, balance and gratitude. The thought that one can be at peace with the world only if one is at peace with oneself, rings true in today’s fast paced era of digitalisation.
Having been an ardent follower of yoga myself for many years now, I cherish the time which is spent doing meditation. Nothing seems more fulfilling than those few minutes of meditation on my Extra Long Yoga Mat after a day which has been spent in chasing never ending targets and deadlines. As you shut your eyes and turn your focus to your breath, your mind tries to break free from web of intertangled thoughts and emotions that have exhausted you throughout the day. Meditation nourishes the body, mind and the soul just like the dry parched earth is drenched by the first showers of rain.
