    According to a new study conducted by scientists in the UK, New Zealand and the Netherlands, Meditation apparently does not make the world a better place. The Dalai Lama once claimed that meditation could be the way the end of violence and world peace, but research suggests that meditation does nothing to change how people interact with one another. Things like prejudice and aggressiveness remained in people who practice meditation, the researchers found.

    I don't buy it. True meditation on a spiritual level changes you. People who have no morals will get nothing from a spiritual practice. I have seen things like prayer, fasting, meditation, hell even yoga change lives.
