Science has known for some time that stress is a major factor in the onset and worsening of many diseases, but there is now solid scientific research on the main biological changes triggered by stress and their effect on the immune system. This new scientific research confirms that meditation can offset stress-related diseases and, in many instances, produce effects equal to standard medications. These and other landmark scientific discoveries are the subject of the interview with Dr. Peter Van Houten, “Meditation Protects You against Stress and Disease: The Latest Scientific Research.”
Paramhansa Yogananda’s article, “How to Transcend Astrological Influences” will be helpful to anyone interested in learning about astrology’s original purpose, its role in the life of a devotee, and how the great masters relate to astrology.
If you are not meditating deeply or would like to go deeper, Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi’s article, “Three Steps to Deepening Your Meditations,” gives you the three basic steps that cannot be ignored. Unfortunately, as they point out, people can meditate for years with poor results simply because they’ve ignored the basics.
It is our joy to share these and other articles offering inspiration and practical advice.
May God bless you always.
