Meditation is an ancient religious practice, being routinely prescribed in the modern secular society, not just by spiritual masters, but by behavioural scientists, medical practitioners and business consultants. It has found widely varied applications in religious institutions, medical facilities, educational establishments and business organizations. This is a relatively recent development. Less than half a century ago the world meditation, in the sense it is used today, was largely unfamiliar to those outside the Hindu and Buddhist religious traditions.
This book traces the growth of meditation around the world and focuses on several prominent meditation masters who have adapted ancient meditation practices for modern times or developed their own approaches to meditation to enhance health and mental capabilities, as well as emotional and spiritual well-being.
It concludes with a discussion on the benefits of meditation for modern men and women. The reader can try out the various techniques described and decide on the one most suited to his or her own needs.
