"Swami Medhasananda has produced a very unusual, hauntingly beautiful and undoubtedly useful volume on compact disc. In it we find some well performed hymns and chants, clear instructions from the swami regarding chanting of OM, breathing exercises, etc.
The volume is designed so that those with the technical capabilities can program only the tracks they wish to hear.
Dhyanam should prove useful for many wishing to practice meditation."
-Global Vedanta, a quarterly published by the Vedanta Society of Western Washington, Seattle, USA.
II. What is Meditation?
Vedanta philosophy or Hinduism says, each soul is potentially divine and the goal of human life is to manifest this divinity within, by controlling nature - external and internal.
Meditation can be practiced by any person from any walk of life, any religion, any country or any age.
Put simply, meditation is like discovering the hidden gold mine which is lying buried within each one of us.
III. Benefits of Meditation
If one can practice regularly and with determination, he or she will develop deep concentration, mental power and peace.
Efficiency in every walk of life will improve. Interpersonal relationships will improve. Mental stress and strain will be diffused and it will bring heavenly Bliss.
