Meditation is an experience that cannot be described, just as colors cannot be described to a blind man. All ordinary experience is limited by Time, Space and Causation. Our normal awareness and understanding do not transcend these bounds. A scientific meditation technique for achieving the true human potential.

Brief description of Meditation

"Meditation" also refers to the seventh of the eight steps of Yoga in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, a step called dhyāna in Sanskrit. Meditation refers to a mental or spiritual state that may be attained by such practices, and also refers to the practice of that state.
The history of meditation intimately bound up with the religious context within which it was practiced.[clarification needed] Some authors have even suggested the hypothesis that the emergence of the capacity for focused attention, an element of many methods of meditation, may have contributed to the final phases of human biological evolution.[28] Some of the earliest references to meditation are found in the Hindu Vedas of Nepal and India. Wilson translates the most famous Vedic mantra 'Gayatri' thus : "We meditate on that desirable light of the divine Savitri, who influences our pious rites" (Rgveda : Mandala-3, Sukta-62, Rcha-10). Around the 6th to 5th centuries BCE, other forms of meditation developed via Confucianism and Taoism in China as well as Hinduism, Jainism, and early Buddhism in Nepal and India.
In the west, by 20 BCE Philo of Alexandria had written on some form of "spiritual exercises" involving attention (prosoche) and concentration and by the 3rd century Plotinus had developed meditative techniques.
The Pāli Canon, which dates to 1st century BCE considers Indian Buddhist meditation as a step towards salvation. By the time Buddhism was spreading in China, the Vimalakirti Sutra which dates to 100 CE included a number of passages on meditation, clearly pointing to Zen (known as Chan in China, Thiền in Vietnam, and Seon in Korea). The Silk Road transmission of Buddhism introduced meditation to other Asian countries, and in 653 the first meditation hall was opened in Singapore. Returning from China around 1227, Dōgen wrote the instructions for zazen.

Benefit of Yoga Therapy

Since the practice of Yoga is modified to suit the individual, the person does not need to meet any requirements of fitness, age, or health in order to start a Yoga programme. Almost everyone would benefit from Yoga regardless of his or her medical condition.
What makes Yoga so beneficial is its ability to affect all levels of the human system. By practicing Yoga the student not only feels better, but also gains a way to actively participate in the care of his or her own health. Common benefits experienced by many students include, improvement in quality of sleep, elimination of pain, and reduction in stress. Medically speaking, we are instructing our students on how to support the functioning of their parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn supports homeostasis and healing.
