Meditation has a proven record in its ability to improve health, awaken happiness and give a clear perspective on life. It enables you to identify the real causes of unhappiness and recover from stress, anxiety and tension.
Calm Abiding meditation, also known as Shamatha, is not a specifically Buddhist technique of meditation but is common to other spiritual traditions as well. Single-pointed concentrating on the breath or other suitable object of meditation is a natural process that helps you to focus better on ordinary tasks and make you become more relaxed and peaceful.
This Buddhist technique of mindfulness has attracted much interest from modern scientific fields such as psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour as well as sport training.

“Holding the rope of mindfulness and the hook of alertness, may I resolve to tame this mind which is like a wild elephant. Steadily focusing the mind with moderate application of antidotes, may I discover what causes its restlessness.”
~Lama Choedak Rinpoche
