Meditation tools can be used to enhance your meditation practice as well as help you create a space that provides a focal point to strengthen your commitment and improve your experience. Among the many benefits of meditation, it is often used to relax and focus as a form of stress management and maintaining good health. In meditation, you can focus on your breath, or imagery such as an object to keep your attention focused. You can use malas, incense, statues, pictures and sound as a way of intensifying your practice. You can use these tools separately, one at a time. Or, you can create an altar of devotional objects that set a mood as well as create a sacred space that can be used as a sanctuary.
