#21 - Origins of Meditation

The origins of meditation are much debated with written reports of it being practiced in Buddhist India and Taoist China around 5,000 years ago. At a much later date in the timeline of meditation, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was said to have developed Transcendental Meditation and was popularized by being a Guru who taught The Beatles. Since then meditation is becoming more and more widespread across the world with meditation classes being offered in many different cities. According to google just in America alone around about 18 Million people have used meditation. This number is expected to rise. There are a lot of successful individuals who promote and support mediating. These individuals include …

  • Jennifer Aniston, actress

  • Russell Brand, stand-up comedian

  • Ray Dalio, investment banker

  • Ellen DeGeneres, talk-show host

  • Hugh Jackman, actor

  • Anushka Sharma, Indian actress

  • Russell Simmons, music producer & entrepreneur

  • Oprah Winfrey, talk show host & producer

The list goes on and on including primary mainstream celebrities such as Katy Perry and Madonna etc. After discovering some of the individuals who do meditation I was very intrigued and I decided to do more research and learn more about the subject. I knew it was worth exploring as most of my role models supported and encouraged mediation.
