Abstract

[Meditation practices, used by many religious and esoteric systems, mainly in the Far East, but also in Christianity, are in fact methods of coordinating heart and respiration rates. This explains their several favourable effects on human body and has nothing to do with divine or metaphysical influences. The amazing thing, proved by recent scientific research, is that the same effect can be achieved by reciting the Homeric Epics with their proper metre: The wondrous dactylic hexameter is the base, which in fact maintains its benevolent effect, even with translation to other languages, such as English or German.]
