A new study has said that Performing Sahaja Yoga provides mental silence that makes your mind calm and imparts better health and wellbeing.
Fifty-two percent of those took part in study said that they achieved mental silence “several times per day or more” while 32 percent said that they experienced it “once or twice per day.”
“We focused on meditation as mental silence and surveyed practitioners of Sahaja Yoga who practise a form of meditation aimed at achieving this state rather than relaxation or mindfulness methods that are usually the focus of other forms,” Ramesh Manocha, senior lecturer of psychiatry, University of Sydney Medical School, Australia, who led the research, has been quoted as saying.
“We found that the health and wellbeing profile of people who had meditated for at least two years was significantly higher in the majority of health and wellbeing Etegories when compared to the (general) population,” Manocha, the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine has been quoted as saying.
The researcher found huge difference in mental health of the participants. They found that long-term meditators, with a minimum of two years of regular practice, has 10 percent better off than the general population, said Manocha, according to a Sydney Medical School report.
“Most markedly there was a robust relationship between the frequency of experiencing mental silence and better mental health. This definition is based on it being the form of meditation practised for centuriesThe national study is one of a kind in which health quality-of-life survey of long-term meditators has been conducted. More than 350 people who have gone under meditation for at least two years took part in the study.
