Meditation - Meditation saves a life
by Jamuna Rangachari
One always knew meditation could work wonders but no one realized just how much power it has. The experience of a Chinese construction worker surely makes take notice of the its immense power.
Wang Jianxin, 52, was working on a site in Ningbo city when a wall collapsed and buried him under 6ft of earth. It became suddenly dark and he could only see a small air pocket in front him.
"I knew it would not last, so I made myself relax and concentrated on slowing down my breathing by meditation. It was very quiet down there and I was surprised that despite facing death how easy it was to focus my mind and bring about the inner clam needed for meditation," he says.
It was not all smooth sailing. It become very hot and suffocating and he thought he might not make it but fortunately, he soon heard voices and digging and suddenly could see again. "It was the longest two hours of my life," he now says, grateful for his presence of mind.
So, yes, miracles do happen….
