There’s nothing to it and science agrees – meditation works

YOGIS have sworn by it for years, but now there is scientific proof that meditation eases stress and promotes better health.

Meditation triggers change in electrical activity of the brain, improving the mind and body in measurable ways, the latest study on work stress, led by Dr Ramesh Manocha at Sydney University, reveals.

"Within the context of meditation and stress, it’s the largest study in the world … and we’ve applied some rigorous conditions," Dr Manocha said.

The secret to the success of the study, he said, was the ”mental silence” traditional approach used in Sahaja Yoga.

"What authentic techniques should do is show you how to widen space between thoughts until the space is so large you have no thoughts whatsoever in that moment," he said.
