An article at LiveScience lists the following reasons why one should take up meditation:
- Reduces pain perception
- Improves your sex life
- Helps avoid mental traps that drag out problem solving
- Boosts mental toughness against the debilitating effects of some emotional events
- Helps you keep your cool
- Increases focus
- Bulks up the brain
Where is spiritual enlightenment or illumination?
I guess science hasn’t gone that far yet.
