Meditation Boosts Brain Power

Meditation is a century's old practice of relaxing the mind, improving thought power and exercising both the body and soul.

Meditation comes down through so many religious beliefs as well such as Buddhism and Hinduism. It can also be termed as a global practice because it is common within all religion, countries and cultures.

What exactly is meditation anyway?

According to Rob Nairn (the author of the book What is Meditation?) : "It [Meditation] is a highly alert and skillful state of mind because it requires one to remain psychologically present, and with whatever happens in and around one, without adding to or subtracting from it in any way."

So many scientific experiments have been carried out for years to find out the influence meditation has on the human brain.
