Yoga is in only one language…

Standard

Most of you would have thought about Sanskrit but that’s not what I am talking about. I know that all the Yoga scriptures were originally written in Sanskrit then got translated into several languages but that doesn’t mean it’s only for Sanskrit speaking language. In fact there are a very few people alive who can converse in Sanskrit.

As per my observation and research the only language which can help in truly understanding Sanskrit is BODY LANGUAGE. It’s your body which tells you which asanas you can do, which asanas you should do, which asanas may cause injuries or which asana may heal you.

Now isn’t just about asanas right, so what about meditation? well here you not actually required to do anything. Just concentrate 🙂

Well these were just my thoughts hope you will like it. 🙂

ONE WORLD   ONE LANGUAGE!

Effect of meditation on brain

Standard

As per our Guruji Meditation is the best medication, now that’s the theory. How to prove that? Well not us but researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital did a study on 16 people on the effect of eight week long mindfulness meditation course. They studied the brain scans of the people before and after the course. The study, published in the January issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, concluded that after completing the course, parts of the participants’ brains associated with compassion and self-awareness grew, and parts associated with stress shrank.

Effect of meditation on brain

Frontal lobe
This is the most highly evolved part of the brain, responsible for reasoning, planning, emotions and self-conscious awareness. During meditation, the frontal cortex tends to go offline.

Parietal lobe
This part of the brain processes sensory information about the surrounding world, orienting you in time and space. During meditation, activity in the parietal lobe slows down.

Thalamus
The gatekeeper for the senses, this organ focuses your attention by funneling some sensory data deeper into the brain and stopping other signals in their tracks. Meditation reduces the flow of incoming information to a trickle.

Reticular formation
As the brain’s sentry, this structure receives incoming stimuli and puts the brain on alert, ready to respond. Meditating dials back the arousal signal.

Technically meditation calms you down and also the activity level in your body. Which sometimes matches the activity level during sleep. According to Shawn Achor, meditation can actually make you happier long-term: Meditation helps in rewiring the brain and helps you to relax. And it’s the most effective way to live happier.
