Meditation is both an art and a science.
It is a technique for personal growth that has been practiced for thousands of years around the world with repeatable results. It is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is the cornerstone of true spirituality.
There is no aspect of your life that cannot be improved by meditation, whether it be in business, relationships, health, or developing any personal quality, such as willpower.
The highest purpose of meditation, however, is to discover your Highest Self.
Based on the original teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.
