    “He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.”

    Lao Tzu

    Enlightenment is often described as peace, liberation, reading your full potential, becoming one with creation, constant happiness or support from the environment but is there an actual science behind it?

    An enlightened brain working at full capacity shows an abundance of Alpha Waves which represent inner wakefulness and brain wave coherence which results in greater intuition, calm thought processes and deeper mind-body co-ordination. When measuring co-ordination and restful alertness of the brain, it is clear that athletes, managers and musicians have respectably high levels, however Long-Term Transcendental Meditation (TM) is far more effective.

    Meditation encourages higher Alpha coherence particularly during TM, though many different types of meditation also help the brain. Zen meditation, Qigong and Diamond Way Buddhism help you to focus attention,where  Vipassana, Sahaja Yoga and Concentrative Qigoing aid mindfulness and all of these are proved by scientific studies!
