MEDITATION CLUB
Meditation, nowadays, is increasingly considered a panacea to all sorts of problems related to psychic disturbances and mental diseases. A sound mind makes a sound body and ultimately makes a person perfect. Meditation makes a person not only fit to live but also removes the stress and negative attitude. Meditation means the concentration of mind towards a particular object, parts of the human body, celestial body etc.Meditation is the easiest process of cultivating and developing the human mind. Once the habit of Meditation is developed, it will be possible to do it in all circumstances of lying, sitting and walking in the midst of noise, etc. Meditation is otherwise known as ‘contemplation’ which means concentration of mind on a single train of ideas which work out a single subject. In India , meditation is known as ‘Dhyana’ which means mental concentration in thought, vision or knowledge. Students, the vulnerable section of the society, need meditation to get rid of mental stress, because of their accumulated educational burden and other socio-economic factors. Meditation helps them to concentrate on their studies, to come up in their life and to face problems scientifically.Considering these aspects, it was proposed to commission a Meditation Club at Thiruvalluvar College , Papanasam, to impart the importance of meditation and its techniques to the students. The idea was floated first among the students of various disciplines. There was an overwhelming response from the students. The Meditation club was started on 28th September 2004, thanks to the constant efforts taken by Dr.V.Sankarasubramoniam, the Principal of this College.
