 "One ounce of action worth more than tons of discussion."
“If the mind falls asleep, awaken it. Then if it starts wandering, make it quiet. If you reach the state where there is neither sleep nor movement of mind, stay still in that, the natural (real) state.”– Ramana Maharshi

Students and Meditation
    Improved concentration– It leads to better grades, balanced blood pressure, decreased absenteeism and tardiness, improved interpersonal relations, and enhanced confidence level, sleep, relief from a headache, improved calmness and a sharper mind.
    Flexibility– Yet another advantage of practising yoga regularly is the flexibility of the body. Stretching the muscles through yoga poses releases the lactic acid that builds up within your body preventing stiffness, pain, fatigue and tension that can really be painful at times. Stretching increases joint lubrication and stretches the soft tissues of your body. For students playing sports, yoga can decrease the risk of injury through increased range of motion and less fatigue.
    Concentration and sharpness– Meditation and yoga have proved to be of great importance in increasing concentration and sharpness of the brain. Balanced blood pressure, arthritis and asthma can also be controlled through yoga.
Target Study Group listed few benefits of yoga for students include:
•    Improved concentration leading to better grades
•    Balanced Blood Pressure
•    Decreased Absenteeism & Tardiness 
•    Improved Interpersonal Relationships
•    Enhanced Confidence Level
•    Sound Sleep
•    Relief from Headache and other Miscellaneous Problems
•    Improved Calmness
•    Sharper Brain
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation realizing the importance of Meditation, it required all the teachers to talk about the importance of Meditation and make sure the students practice meditation every day. It improves concentration, improves their mental focus, helps them to be more disciplined, and aids them to be calm and peaceful.
