Healing : All physical afflictions are because of mental worries. All mental worries are because of intellectual immaturity.
Intellectual immaturity is because of lack of spiritual energy and lack of spiritual wisdom.
Diseases are primarily because of previous negative karma. Until and unless the negative karma is neutralized, the disease will not vanish ;ofcourse, it goes without saying, that no medicine will ever be of any help to clear the negative karma.
Through meditation, when we get abundant spiritual energy and spiritual wisdom, the intellect becomes spiritually mature. By and by, all mental worldly worries cease and all physical afflictions disappear.
Meditation is the natural way to heal the diseases, at the fundamental level.
Enhancement of Memory Power:
The abundant spiritual energy gained in meditation helps the brain to work more efficiently and to its maximum capacity.
Meditation enhances memory power tremendously. Meditation is absolutely essential for all students, both at the school level and at the university level.
End of Wasteful Habits :
There are several wasteful habits like over-eating, over-sleeping, over-talking, over-thinking, over-drinking etc., etc. With spiritual wisdom and spiritual energy obtained from meditation, all the wasteful habits die naturally.
Joyous Mind :
Life is full of failures, insults and pains for any given person. However, for a person with spiritual knowledge and spiritual energy, life is always peaceful and joyful, in spite of all the failures, insults, and pains.
Increased Work Efficiency:
In the presence of abundant spiritual energy and spiritual wisdom, all work .. be it physical or mental . . gets done with greater efficiency.
Reduced Sleeping Time:
Abundant spiritual energy is obtained in meditation. Only a fraction of that energy is obtained during sleep. Half-an-hour of deep meditation is equivalent to six hours of deep sleep, in terms of rest for the body and energy for the mind.
Qualitative Relationships :
Lack of spiritual wisdom is the only reason why inter-personal relationships lack qualitative engagements and are so unfulfilling. In the presence of spiritual wisdom, all inter-personal relationships become more meaningful and absolutely fulfilling.
Power of Thought :
Thoughts need power to reach their particular targets. In a restless state of mind, thoughts are produced with least power. Therefore, they don’t reach their respective targets. However, in the presence of a restful state of mind, thoughts acquire greater power and all intents get dramatically actualized.
Right and Wrong:
For a spiritually mature person, there are no dilemmas about making all the Right Choices.
Purpose of Life :
We are all born with a particular purpose, with a particular mission, with a particular design and with a particular plan. Only the spiritually mature can understand and be aware of their particular purpose, mission, design and plan in their lives.
In meditation . . the Soul / Self breaks out of the cocoon of spiritual ignorance. More meditation leads to newer personal experiences and the grand understanding of the infinitely expansive reality of the Cosmos. This is ’ Enlightenment ’. Anyone can meditate. This most important practice is for everyone .. children.. youth and adults !
