If we all begin to practice advanced meditation, it can miraculously rewire our brains and cure us.

🔅  Harvard scientists were stunned to find that monks can stay warm in below freezing weather while only wearing a shaw.

🔅  Upon investigation, researchers found that monks can increase their core temperatures simply by focusing on their breaths and by meditating.

🔅  Meditation has been linked with the improvement of stress related health issues such as anxiety, high blood pressure, and depression.
