Meditation is based on the premise that the natural state of the mind is calm and clear. Thus, meditation provides a way to train our mind to settle into this calm and clear state. In the East meditation is primarily for greater spiritual awareness and connection. In the West people approach meditation first for stress reduction. Interestingly, however, they discover and appreciate the spiritual link as well. Whatever your reason for meditation, it will make your life calmer, richer, happier, more peaceful. Through meditation we discover the basic goodness of our natural mind.
