With regular practice a person can tap into infinite source of vision which lies within the body thus bringing body, mind and soul in synchronization with each other.

MEDITATION AND SOUL: HOW MEDITATION TOUCHES OUR SOUL

According to eastern tradition deep inside our body is our subconscious mind, which is seat of our soul. And meditation is only way to connect with this inner self, our soul.

This connection leads us to:
higher consciousness level
– we tap energy and wisdom of our subconscious mind
– philosophically it becomes our refuge to recharge our batteries
– to some it helps them to connect with ultimate source of divine soul, the creator himself

This is purely spiritual experience which cannot be described in visible benefits . Only a person experiencing it can feel the internal bliss.
