Meditation is one of the most important components of Yoga, which is a mind-body therapy involving a series of exercises. The word 'meditation' covers many disparate practices from visualizing situations, focusing on objects or images, thinking through a complex idea, or even getting lost in a provocative book. However in Yoga, meditation generally refers to the practice of focusing the mind and observing oneself in the moment.
Meditation tour carried out at the meditation centres is designed to carry us beyond the illusions created by our thoughts and senses to experience everything in its real form. It starts with focusing of the mind on a single object so as to create a cessation of all the thoughts. As thoughts dissipate, the mind becomes quiet and devoid of all distractions enabling us to exist completely in the present moment. Meditation is contended to be the means of achieving the exalted state of enlightenment or supreme self-realization from its primary to advanced stages.
The techniques of meditation are simple and easy to learn, though the ability to keep the mind focused takes time, patience and practice. The practice of meditation, regularly, gives the benefits like reduction of stress, tension, anxiety and frustration, as well as improved memory, concentration, inner peace and physical well being. Meditation has also proven to be highly effective in treating psychological problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression, schizophrenia and anxiety.
