Re: [Buddhaviharas] Digest Number 490
- Hi Marissa,
It's very nice to hear from you again, and to hear you
are doing as well as you can. I'm not surprised that
meditation helps you. The latest research, and the
Dalai Lama is involved in this (he and his entourage
was at MIT in Sept. having their brain waves again
studied), shows that people who are under stress or
depressed have a lot of right frontal lob activity.
Meditation tends to shift activity to the left, and
when this area is active, you are calm, happy, upbeat.
There is a physical basis for chronic meditators
being very happy.
