Meditation strengthens gamma brain waves

From here
He said thinking and experience can change the brain because it has neuroplasticity, which means the brain has the ability to change its structure and function in response to experience.

One example of that, Lilly said is studies done of the effects of meditation that found that gamma brain waves were strengthened by meditation, and the more hours of meditation training a person had the stronger and more enduring the gamma brain wave signal was.


The key to meditation is to exist one hundred percent in the here and now, which us a constant reawakening to this moment. No matter who we were up to just a moment ago, no matter what situation we were in, nothing can detract from our new choice in this moment—now.

By awakening to the novelty of this moment, we can more easily choose our life purpose and exist according to that purpose.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
