Meditation is an ancient practice that hinges on contemplation and seeks to relax the mind and the body. The classic meditation posture allows the human body to sit on the ground with folded legs and hands rest on the knees. The eyes are closed because meditation seeks to focus the mind on only one activity; for instance, breathing. Popular cultures note that the practice of meditation emerged in India thousands of years ago. However, almost all religions and cultures have professed the practice in many forms at various stages of their evolution. In modern times, human beings continue to practice meditation as a form of relaxation and rejuvenation.
