Here is what a few friends wrote about how meditation helps them. They have been practicing 10-25min daily for the last three months.
I think it calms me down. Between three kids, new house, new job, taking care of parents, there’s so much noise in the head. I don’t think I’ve been able to quieten it all down, but I know it helps to slow the mind during the day. And it helps me get to bed really quickly at night, which may not be the intended purpose! 🙂
I went to the dentist today to follow up on an implant. For the soreness he gave me pain killers. I’ve decided not to take any and use meditation to see if I can handle it – let’s see how long this lasts! Need to go for 2-3 days…
And I asked him who was the winner – medication or meditation. Here is his response:
Meditation it is…at least this time!
PV, a well known music teacher in Bay Area says,
Today I had the pleasure of meditating with my students at the end of music class. They were all saying that it was relaxing! I used the guided 13 min session.
Students said thanks to Rajesh !!
PV also says this about her meditation experience:
Totally positive. In fact it is addictive. I look forward to the time with my eyes closed , thinking about nothing. The repetition of the phrase attitude of gratitude is a daily reminder for me to be a good citizen on a daily basis.
I don’t start things very easily but when I get into it, I take it very seriously.
Thanks for introducing me to meditation!
The biggest difference is how I react to situations. I just feel I am taking a more tempered, composed approach to everything. Of course, others are the best judge of my reactions. But feel like there is an increased sense of acceptance of things that don’t go my way.

Had severe nasal congestion and headache all day. Attempted meditation a couple of times and gave up. Finished 20 minutes meditation after the conversation with Rajesh. Accepted my breathing issue and headache as “normal” and continued as much as I could. It’s been better since then. Glad I avoided medicating myself and chose to meditate for minor ailment. Thanks Rajesh!
