It is not a panacea. Although it's roots are ancient and are a spiritual discipline, it has become an example of spiritual materialism these days and is promoted with zeal and fervor and financial reward for some, not all are reputable people. It's health benefits are exaggerated and should not be used in place of medication, most especially where pain relief is needed. The question, "Do you meditate", has replaced the question, "Have you been saved?"

Meditation has been proven in the past to bring positive results. For those who don't believe in a god or God or gods, it is a very helpful way to calm yourself and control your breathing. Of course, those who observe a god or God or gods, it helps them too. But for the non-believers, it's good to just stop, relax and be mindful for a small amount of time each day.

Yes agree with all above and it also gives you energy when you are tired. Twice a day for 20 minutes is best.

Meditation is done to go back to Godhood. Not for just body and mind benefits....

Tried meditating once but it worked too well, sitting cross legged in my bedroom facing it's open door reciting the on mantra( because it seemed apt )when I was nearly run over by a coach drawn by 6 horses, obviously an hallucination, imaginary but real to me at the time( in my early twenties) that was my first and last meditation session, still vivid now over 50 years ago.
