What is Meditation?

Meditation!!! A word, which is ruling the world for a long time. One might have come across a situation when people suggest meditation as a remedy. Cure-all is a name for a medicine, which is supposed to cure all the problems. Anxiety, Stress, Anger, Personal Development, Concentration and finally living at the moment - for all these, meditation is a best remedy.

Does it need a push from environment? Most of the times, the push from our environment change us.  But the best changes always happens from inside, same to the Personal Development. If it starts from within, it helps us to reach new heights. Let it be learning a new skill, or changing a habit, or gaining wealth, all needs to start with a p
