The International Day of Meditation, celebrated on September 20, is a day on which people around the world can spend time in meditation for the health and wellness of their body, mind, and soul.
Studies by medical doctors and researchers show the value of meditation for our physical and mental health. An added benefit is that it also gives us time to sit in silence to explore our spiritual gifts within.
Science of Spirituality celebrates this day in its over 2800 centers worldwide by exploring the benefits of meditation and practicing it. People of all ages and backgrounds can easily practice meditation. It requires no difficult physical postures or poses. We merely sit in a comfortable position and concentrates our attention within.

Part of our spiritual progress is based on developing a kind spirit. To do this, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of others. It means feeling the joys and pains of others. We can ask ourselves if the words we say to others are the words we want others to say to us.
As we think about honoring our fathers on this day, let us also think about honoring our Universal Father and Mother, God, who created our fathers. The best way to do this is to remember and be thankful for the gifts we have received.
Through meditation, we discover peace and happiness, and we begin to live our lives in a state of calm and equipoise, radiating that peace to others. We will no longer have to pray for peace—we will be peace.
