Apart from total holistic health benefits, the practice of meditation also allows the individual to exist in a state of peace, love and happiness, a state of being which also a responsible factor in the achievement of the total well being of the mind and body. When you are feeling great, it will be much easier for you to deal with the very many difficulties which we all face in life on a daily basis. This calm and positive mind set is achi evable through the dedicated practice of meditation. Meditation has most of its roots in religious practices from the beginning of organized social communities. Basically all forms of religious practice have their own form of meditation which has been refinedand developed over the years. However, there exist several meditation centers where the practice of meditation taught there has no religious leanings whatsoever, one of such being the Z Meditation center based in Dharamsala, within the serene Himalayas of India.There are varied approaches to the art and practice of meditation especially in India where many of the influences are from the ancient Buddhist religious practice. Z Meditation has however developed its own approach towards the art of meditation which their meditation center is named after. Z Meditation teaches the use of Deep Deconditioning Inquiry and Radiant Mantras to help its students to detach their minds from wrong and false conditionings and beliefs. These wrong beliefs and conditioning of the mind are at the root cause of most of human suffering as we will always be in an expectant state, which puts us in a constant chase mode when we are so conditioned. When a sincere seeker has been able to decondition her mind and is living in the moment, aware of her self and not expectant or desirous of outcome from any si tuation or relationship, she is better equipped to cope with the exigencies of life as they present themselves, as they surely will.The requirements needed to practice meditation are very simply a sincere conviction to free oneself, and the dedication to follow through on the practice as a daily routine part of ones life. Meditation is falsely believed by some to be a ritualistic chanting of mantras while sitting with contortions of the body and limbs. The chanting of mantras is not in itself bad, being a strong tool for stilling the mind. However, this is needed only for preparatory purposes, to still the mind. The major part of meditation, as propounded by Z Meditation, is the Deep Inquiry which brings to the surface all your hidden and subconscious beliefs which shape the way you act and react. Z Meditation will help you to get rid of these hidden conditionings, enabling you to begin rising in awareness and consciousness till one is fully self established as a unique individual in one accord with his maker.
