Mediation is the most common word used today by people across the world.

Every home has atleast one person who is into Meditation.Lets understand what is this all about.To put it in simple words, Meditation is a spiritual love-link of the soul with the Supreme Soul. It helps us to know the spiritual truths of life and transform us into a value-based person so that we are not influenced by worldly matters.

There has been a debate since years as to what should be the right age for Meditation”. Some believe that why should youngsters indulge in these things at a young age? Coz its their age to eat, make merry and enjoy life. Meditation or spirituality is for the old people is the common belief of society.

I feel meditation is helpful for everyone; rather it is of utmost importance for the young generation. At this age, mind is fresh and energetic and not yet polluted by worldly matters. So they can inculcate values and virtues easily and bring about a positive change in themselves, so that they can have a developed and balanced personality.

It makes us fearless, increases our concentration power, helps us to generate pure and positive thoughts, gives us peace of mind and helps us to achieve success in every aspects of life -whether it is studies or career.

It is said “As you sow, so shall you reap”, hence if we sow the seeds of divine values and virtues in the minds of the young at a tender age, we would reap its healthy fruit in the form of a happier and beautiful world in future.
