The Roots of Meditation

"The roots of meditation are the ancient warrior professions,” Roth explains. “That was hand-to-hand combat, and to perform, you couldn’t act out of anger or fear or impulsivity. You had to be clear-thinking at all times. When he talks about how meditation improves his performance, Ray talks about inner equanimity and being a ninja. It’s made to order for people in the finance industry.”  ~The Om of Wall Street
The warrior "roots" of meditation are actually in the Aryan culture that brought the Vedic religion into India. See THE ASSASSIN LOTUS.
