How many times did you decide to start meditation but either did for a few days or never yet started? I know, it has happened to me also and many of my friends also share the same story. We all know the benefits of Meditation but still somehow don’t know how to begin it and experience it.
The oldest documented evidence of the practice of meditation is wall arts and sculptures in the Indian subcontinent dating back to approximately 5,000 to 3,500 BCE. These arts showed people seated in meditative postures with half-closed eyes. Written evidence of any form of meditation was first seen in the Vedas around 1500 BCE.
Meditation is a very simple practice that doesn’t need anywhere to go or acquire any gadgets and costs nothing. It is the most amazing way to have numerous benefits in the easiest way you can imagine. The thing about meditation though is that we experience even greater benefits when we repeat the practice frequently and consistently. Finding some time each day to meditate — even a short daily meditation — is better than no meditation at all.
