Neurology is one of the most impressive branches of medicine. The nervous system comprises the brain the spinal cord, the nerves emanating from them, and their innervations of muscle fibers. The human race is superior and special to other living beings due to the unique anatomy and physiology of the human nervous system.

As a neuro physician, we deal with all different diseases of the nervous system those are coma, epilepsy, paralysis due to ischemic stroke,
hemorrhage, headache, migraine, memory loss, Parkinsonism, Brain infection, Brain humor, Spinal Cord diseases, Neuritis & muscle diseases.

Meditation
We exist in at least 3 forms:

  • Physical body
  • Mental-Emotional body
  • Spiritual body.

We waste our whole day and life, our whole energy for the physical body, its caretaking, its exercises, wellbeing, and its pleasures. But, somehow we are not taught to take care of our mental and spiritual bodies, their exercises, their wellbeings, and their pleasures. Meditation is one powerful way to correct these mistakes.

The real purpose of meditation is taming the mind, elimination of ego and then elimination of mind itself, thus attaining Samadhi- total bliss. Her soul remains uninhibited, manifesting its complete knowledge, complete revelations, etc. Apart from this, meditation can give physical relaxation, relief from stress, relief from psychosomatic illnesses, control over emotions and negative thoughts, and can purify our perceptions and perversions of mind. There are several views about mediation.

Also, there are five important concepts of meditation. Although there are 40 different important accepted techniques of meditation in Indian spiritual-esoteric circles, it is interesting to note that they come from basic 5 methods of meditation. Further, so many (hundreds) individual modifications of these techniques allow each individual to have its own tailormade technique. In short, each individual can practice meditation suitable to him/her.

However, meditation is not a push-button system. one has to have patience, courage, hard work, and perseverance. This coupled with the right guide, the right technique, the right understanding, and real belief and dedication can bring success. There is a high failure rate amongst meditators, usually, this is due to the nonfulfilling of the above criteria. It is sad, that meditation has become a business of billions and many opportunists have misused and abused this sacred spiritual science. Therefore one should be careful. Real, deep meditation is spiritual ecstasy.

But, this is not a hallucination; it is a neurological event. This has been largely depicted and documented by the neurological, neuroradiological experiments of chiefly last 5-6 years. There are specific and consistent EEG changes with different meditation techniques. The neurotransmitters and neural hormones of specific areas of the brain are altered during deep meditation as well as in people having regular meditation. There are changes in brain mapping. There are differences in cerebral blood flow in specific brain areas.

The metabolism / r.CBF of parietal association areas of the left brain is reduced during deep meditation, suggesting that the orientation of individual to time and place is cut off/ reduced. Thus faculty of ego awareness is reduced. The metabolism/ rCBF of frontal areas is increased correlating with highly concentrated brain tasks.

The sympathetic nervous system is put to rest during meditation, while the parasympathetic nervous system gets hyperactivated. Thus science has correlated meditation as a real neurological event and hence its tremendous positive benefits on the body and mind are confirmed. Apart from neurological, there are equally nice effects on body metabolism, cardiovascular and respiratory system, and other bodily systems, some of which are also documented in scientific experiments. Hence, let us meditate from today and now, in a correct way and pursue it with patience and courage.

Frequently Asked Question

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
