      Question from Email: A student is writing a paper about meditation
      and its effect on athletes. He would like to know where to research
      this.
      Answer: Actually, all the martial arts are meditation-based methods
      of gaining self control. Similarly, Zen meditation techniques are
      found in archery and in the 70's one of the best selling books was a
      book dealing with Zen and tennis. Chico Resch was a great hockey
      goalie and he attributed his being able to pay perfect attention on
      his success. He said that he could see the puck coming at him in slow
      motion. Such is the power of concentration, and concentration is the
      basic start of attaining a meditative state. Similarly, Ted Williams,
      the Hall of Fame baseball player has said that he was able to
      concentrate so intensely on the thrown pitch, that he was able to see
      the seams of the ball as it rotated. Many swimmers visualize every
      dive, and many golfers visualize every shot.These are meditation
      skills. I would suggest checking out any Karate, Aikido, or Tae Chi
      site and you will surely find a meditation factor in gaining mastery
      of these athletic skills.
