Mediation has been practiced for thousands of years and recorded since ancient times. It has been suggested that primitive hunting and gathering communities could have discovered the different states of awareness brought about from gazing at the flames of their fires.
It has been said that a form of meditation was developed some 10,000 – 15,000 years ago by tribes in Southern India.
There are many different forms of meditation, such as Pratyhara, and it was first developed and widely practiced across Asia; only really coming to the Western world in the last century.
