Hindu meditation is good for the body

In Hinduism (initially Sanatana Dharma), meditation has a place of significance. The fundamental objective of meditation is always to attain oneness associated with the practitioner’s spirit (atman with) omnipresent and non-dual almighty (Paramatma or Brahman). This state of one’s self is named Moksha in Hinduism and Nirvana in Buddhism. But as well Hindu monks and soon after Buddhist monks also are said to have achieved miraculous power by practicing meditation. The Hindu scriptures prescribe certain postures to achieve the state where the thoughts are in meditation. These positions are known as yoga. Clear references of yoga and meditation are located in ancient Indian scriptures like Vedas, Upanishads, and Mahabharata that features Gita. The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad defines meditation as having become calm and concentrated, one recognizes the self (atman) within oneself. Within the Hindu method of meditation you can find a set of rules to be followed in the process of yoga to successfully practice meditation. They are ethical discipline (Yamas), rules (niyamas), physical postures (asanas), breath control (pranayam), one-pointed concentration of mind (dharana), meditation (dhyana), and lastly salvation (samadhi). Hardly any can reach the stage of dhyana without the right knowledge and training from Guru, and fewer are thought to have reached the final stage. Gautama Buddha (originally Hindu prince), and Sri Ramakrishna, are thought to have been successful in achieving the final stage of salvation (samadhi)
