The origins of meditation
Meditation has been practiced for centuries and in loads of different cultures but why sit around and think of nothing?
Dyhana or meditation is one of the eight limbs of yoga according to an ancient script, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. In fact, the main function of yoga according to Patanjali is to still the fluctuations or disturbances of the mind.
Surely the inactivity of meditation is not good for you and should only be practiced by Buddhist monks!
