What we nowadays call "meditation" has its origin in the Tibetan word "gom", which means “getting used to and familiarizing the mind with something positive”. Thus, through meditation, a mind that was often stressed out, that lacked concentration and clarity, that often experienced anger, anxiety, depression,greed and so on, can gradually become calm, clear and focused, and naturally respond to anything with compassion, love, patience, and generosity.
The idea that we can train our minds to promote healthy mental habits, and that these habits can be reflected in body-mind relationships isn’t new; it has been observed for thousands of years in various cultures. However, only now science is confirming this ancient discovery. Hundreds of studies indicate that the meditations you can practice with Lojong are associated with increased well-being and reduction of cortisol (the "stress hormone") and that they can alter biochemical, neural and behavioral processes. Researches have repeatedly shown the effects of this training on the brain and the immune system, in reducing anxiety and mental illnesses such as depression.
