The rest in meditation is said to be deeper than sleep, and its benefits are manifold. A calm mind, good concentration, clarity of perception, improvement in communication, inner strength, and relaxation are all natural results of regular meditation. In today’s world of stress and a host of other negative emotions, meditation is not a luxury, but a necessity. It is the key to sustaining happiness and peace of mind.
