Types of Meditation
Remember, the use of meditation is not limited to any one philosophy or religion. Some of the benefits of meditation that everyone can use include relaxation, healing, removing stress, peak achievement, overcoming mental difficulties and deep happiness. At its most profound, meditation allows a person to see reality as it really is, and can lead to the ultimate goal of enlightenment (complete wisdom, and the end of all suffering). However, meditation is available to us all, however we wish to use it. Many people say that the practice of meditation is the greatest skill that a person can learn in their lifetime.
