Why meditation for mental health?

Meditation gives peace and helps in balancing emotions. With the increase in nuclear families and advancements in technology, people are living in isolation. Lifestyle changes are increasing stress among the public. Modern generations are moving apart from the roots and traditions inviting mental troubles. Meditation and yogic principles were part of ancient India. And the campaign is trying to revive this ideology back into the social system.
