Body is the physical illustration of consciousness. We have a beautiful body, and each cell of our body has its own mind and consciousness. Meditation has the power of transforming our body, its constituents, and its functioning.
We dabble a lot about Consciousness. According to the Vedas the sum total of our being is consciousness. The reality that we perceive depends on “how much consciousness is accessible to us”. Meditation expands field of your consciousness.
