- Forgiveness is a virtue that not only does well to the people around you but also to yourself. As you start meditating, you realize that you are not the same person you were a moment ago. So, you learn to forgive people and yourself for things you were upset. Achieving mental peace becomes the prime moto of your everyday life when you meditate regularly.
- Whenever you do something, you think about its consequences. Most of the time, we strive to achieve something from our present actions. But when you meditate, you are aware of your existence just at the present moment. This awareness lets you live in the present without judging your actions because you are least concerned about the consequences. This does not imply that all the goals and ambitions will be drained off, but what is implies is that you do the right thing at the right moment and appreciate your existence every moment.
- Kindness is another great virtue that makes a person happy and of course all the people around that person happy. There are times when you do something stupid and feel sorry about it later for being mean. This hampers your mental peace to a great extent. Feeling of guilt is one such thing that steals your mental peace to a great extent. Every time you meditate, just whisper to yourself that you will be a good person, that you will be a happy person. This has magically strong effects on the entire being. This helps in transforming you.
Meditation has healing effects like no other activities.

Meditation is a long-term process of regular practice. It gets difficult in the beginning to concentrate but with regular practice, the process becomes a mental healer of every day stress.
