perceived, temporary appearances, unrealities and attain a vision and an
experience of the super sensuous Divine Reality and attain peace and
harmony. The challenge lies in transforming the inert body to the level of

serenity of the self. The Yoga, with the rhythm of the body, the melody of
the mind and the harmony of the soul, creates the symphony of life. Their
are various Asanas that help to attain this rhythm. Intergral part of Yoga
is Meditation, an antidote to the excessive stress of modern life resulting
in health problems. It helps retrain response mechanisms so that we don't
react as strongly or as negatively to adverse situations. Meditation
emboldens body's immune system, wards off diseases and enables quick
recovery from diseases. Meditation helps mould a mind healthy, alert,
positive, and calm. This, in turn, produces a body filled with vitality and
health. A blend of meditation, proper diet, and yoga postures improves the
general health. Medical journals say even serious heart and circulatory
problems can be reversed through a regime of diet, meditation, and exercise.
Meditation takes away fear, worry, and anger and replaces the mind with
positive, strong attitudes. Its daily practice gives control over the flow
of life-force. As a result, an attitudinal change takes place leading to
dispassionate approach to worldly pleasures.

life. Relationships will be rewarding once developed a calm, relaxed
sensitivity of life via meditation. All forms of meditation are good, but in
our high speed society, we need to learn how to protect our energy by
closing down at the end.
