In this article we discussed ten neuroscience based well-being measurement indicators. Neuroscience of well-being is not only limited to mindfulness meditation, it has progressed in many areas of well-being like exercise, office work load, school load, yoga, food, nutrition, financial fulfillment, social interaction and in many other ares. Science of well-being is an interdisciplinary science that collaborates with other fields such as medicine, neuroscience, neurobiology, physiology, chemistry, psychology, genetics, behavioral science, social science and economics. Gray matter volume, insula volume, and cortical thickness indicators are good for measuring the eudaimonic well-being. Activity in the default mode network (DMN), dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine are good for hedonic well-being.
Transcendental experience during yoga and meditation is well known for centuries. Here we discussed the safe and scientific process of transcendental experience. We also discussed neuroscience of transcendental experience during meditation. How to achieve transcendental experience? What are the risks in transcendental experience? Is it possible to transcend the limits of the material universe and entered into the realm of infinite? What are the brain dynamics and brain network connectivity during during transcendental experience? These are the few questions that I tried to explain in this article. True transcendental experience increases gray matter in the brain. It activates the prefrontal cortex—the newest part of the human brain. It creates many new pathways in the brain. The right insular cortex in the brain is activated by true transcendental experience. The insular cortex involved in compassion. moral decision making and pain control. The cortical thickness of the brain increases. Reduces the amyagdal activity in the brain.
Blood pressure is effectively lowered by mindfulness meditation. Downward-Facing Dog Pose Standing Forward Bend Pose and Bridge Pose are the three most important yoga poses for stress reduction. Stress is not an illness itself, but it can cause serious illness. Yoga and mindfulness meditation is the easiest cure for that. Age-related stiffening of the arteries is a key contributor to high blood pressure and the propensity to develop blood clots. Yoga and mindfulness can increase the flexibility of the arteries.
Yoga stretching is an excellent exercise. It is simple and easy. It increase flexibility, improve balance and prevent falls. With all types of yoga poses, you need to engage in stretching regularly in order to get lasting benefits. Yoga stretching gives immediate release from stress.

Mindfulness is relaxing with present moment awareness. Mindfulness is a science developed around 3,500 years back. Mindfulness was popular before Buddha, but Buddha formalized it and popularized it among common people. In modern Western society, mindfulness has been adapted for use in treatment of stress and depression, especially preventing dementia and alzheimer’s and also for assisting with emotional regulation. The seven factors of mindfulness are discussed. There are about 200 scientific articles on the effectiveness of mindfulness meditation. Scientist observed that mindfulness practice reduces stress and decreases volume of grey matter in the amygdala.
Recent scientific studies on meditation demonstrated that rich club brain network have a key role to play in making global communication and information integration during meditation. The human brain is a complex network of interlinked regions. Scientific studies on meditation demonstrated that the anatomical network of the human brain shows a “rich-club” organization. The aim … Read more
How meditation work in our brain? How brain network hubs interacts? This article identify the major brain regions and their dynamic connectivity during meditation. Brain network connectivity approaches to meditation neuroscience are currently accelerating at a rapid pace, propelled by the availability of ‘big fMRI data’, an expanding computational infrastructure, and the formation of large-scale … Read more
