Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself. Meditation includes techniques that are designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. In today’s world of increasing stress and chaos it is essential that one stops for a moment and finds a way to get that inner peace and tranquillity and meditation can often be the key to achieve just that.
