VM is a simple ancient technique from India
What is Meditation?
Generally speaking "meditation" refers to any mental technique designed to promote relaxation, mental clarity, and an overall sense of wellbeing. Contrary to popular belief meditation is not a religious practice in itself, though some religions may use some form of it as a part of worship. On its own meditating neither negates nor imposes any religious views.
