In 1978, Robert Keith Wallace completed a ten year study of meditators, evaluating their biological age by using three indicators; blood pressure, hearing and near point vision. He found that the subjects who had meditated for five years or less were on average five years younger biologically and that the subjects who had meditated more than five years were on average twelve years younger biologically. For example, sixty-five year olds had fifty-three year old bodies.
If you could subtract twelve years from your biological age by simply doing a twenty minute practice of Meditation daily would you? For me it is easy, I say YES and have been meditating since the age of seventeen and I guess that is why people say I do not look my age. Biologically, I am 65; however, it feels great to be 53 and loving every minute of it!
