The Ancient Healing Power
The history of meditation is vast and dates back thousands of years. It has been practiced in various forms and by different cultures around the world. While it is challenging to provide a comprehensive account of the entire history of meditation, I can offer an overview of its origins and key developments.
Origins in Ancient India: The origins of meditation can be traced back to ancient India, where it emerged as a spiritual practice within the broader context of Hinduism. The ancient texts known as the Vedas, composed between 1500 and 500 BCE, contain references to meditative practices.
