Manage Brainwaves through Meditation and Attain Samadhi

Ven. Dr. Lenaagala Siriniwasa


Abstract: Abatract Manage Brainwaves through Meditation and attain Samdhi At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviours are connected by neurons within our brain. Brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other. The brain waves can be observed with an EEG (or an electroencephalograph) - a tool that allows researchers to note brain wave patterns. Brainwaves are detected using sensors placed on the scalp. They are divided into bandwidths to describe their functions, but are best thought of as a continuous spectrum of consciousness, from slow, loud and functional - to fast, subtle, and complex. Our brains ability to become flexible and/or transition through various brain wave frequencies plays a large role in how successful we are at managing stress, focusing on tasks, and getting a good sleep at night. If one of the five types of brain waves is either overproduced and/or under produced in our brain, it can cause problems. Throughout the day in your waking state, your EEG will display all 5 types of brain waves at the same time. However, one particular brain wave will be dominant depending on the state of consciousness that you are in.
