World Meditation Day
Meditation has been a part of a part of culture in many countries especially in the Eastern countries of the world, it is well known. For India, meditation has always been, since ages a part and parcel of the daily life of people, of course over the period of time, its sanctity, its completeness got lost and it came to be known as something very difficult, something not for the usual people and it just remained a spiritual experience for the recluse and monks. Some people unfortunately even think that meditation is nothing more than a religious practice. In reality meditation is for going inwards and this need to within ourselves has been inherent in every religion. Meditation had been there for sure but it had lost its originality and its completeness and this is when His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ji played a key role in its revival from the Indian Vedic tradition and revival of Vedic knowledge and establishing it on a very scientific platform. Maharishi began teaching Transcendental Meditation from the south of India in late 1950s and began the worldwide Spiritual Regeneration Movement after that. In the 1960s Maharishi started His world tour to bring this knowledge in every home. The purpose of this organization was to bring about improvement in the quality of human life with the knowledge of the Vedas and with this started the Global Spiritual revolution which we know today as Transcendental Meditation. Today meditation is a household name and it is benefiting many people to deal with their day to day issues, to have less stress and for overall personal development.
