    “The physical benefits of meditation have recently been well-documented by Western medical researchers. It tends to lower or normalize blood pressure, pulse rate, and the levels of stress hormones in the blood. It produces changes in brain wave patterns, showing less excitability. These physical changes reflect changes in attitude, which show up in psychological tests as a reduction in the over competitive Type A behavior that increases the risk of heart attack. Meditation also raises the pain threshold and reduces one’s biological age…… in short, it reduces wear and tear on both body and mind, helping people live longer and better.”
