Benefits of Meditation

During the meditation, a wide variety of changes has been seen in the body and brain.

FMRI scan conducted on a person before and after meditation reveals that the brain after meditation does not process information as energetically as it does normally. A reduction in beta waves has been observed in the examination. Other changes are 

1. Frontal lobe

This part of the brain is connected to the strength of reasoning, emotions, planning, and self-conscious awareness of people. It is noticed that during meditation, this part of the brain goes offline.

2. Parietal lobe

It is responsible for processing sensory information about our surroundings; it also gets less active when we meditate.
