11 Health Benefits of Meditation | LiveLifeHealth
Since aged times, man has learned that he can gain a significant advantage through controlling the mind. While meditation has been practiced in the whole world for more than thousands of years, the technique of controlling the mind was fully acknowledged and developed first in India and, later, in China.
From the ancient era, religious and spiritual disciplines have been grouped around meditation practices, but only Buddha gave meditation a worthy place for gaining Enlightenment and ultimate salvation. All other religious systems considered 'Meditation' as the development of the mind for gaining psychic powers. Still, Buddha taught us to use meditation to look inside ourselves and achieve an inner vision, and thereby develop ourselves, independent of pure energies.
