Health Benefits of Relaxation and Meditation
Fear, anger and hatred are “eating our immune system”, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said while talking about relationship between mind and body connection in relation to health. He was citing a modern scientific find that relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation improve immune system. “We found a range of disease-fighting genes were active in the relaxation practitioners that were not active in the control group,” Dr. Herbet Benson of Harvard Medical Scholl was quoted in wordpress.com. His Holiness the Dalai Lama said one way to relax physical body is by developing inner peace and compassion.
