Meditacija je reč koju danas ljudi rado koriste, mada većina uopšte ne zna šta ona znači. Ne samo ljudi koji žele da nauče neki oblik meditacije, već i veliki broj onih koji upražnjavaju odredjenu tehniku, brkaju pojmove i misle da je meditacija određeno stanje u koje treba "upasti" ili proces iskorenjivanja misli, kontrole uma, stvaranje pozitivnosti... Druga česta greška aspiranata i početnika je da mešaju razne sisteme joge sa meditacijom, kao i cilj vežbe sa samim procesom. Svrha ovog teksta je da ukloni ove široko rasprostranjene zablude i baci više svetla na to šta meditacija zapravo jeste i koje su bitne razlike izmedju različitih sistema.


Record numbers of American soldiers are being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since the start of the Iraq war—a debilitating syndrome which these men and women carry with them from the battlefield into civilian life.

But fortunately—and often with the prescription of their physicians—a growing number of these veterans are learning the Transcendental Meditation technique and finding an immediate and long-lasting healing relief from this terrible disorder.

The problem of PTSD among veterans has reached epidemic proportions—with an estimated half million soldiers and veterans suffering form of the syndrome, according to a recent report by the international news agency, Agence France Presse (AFP). Even more shocking, a greater of veterans and soldiers have died by suicide then in combat since the start of the Iraq war.
