There is a lot of talk about how wonderful meditation is—but do you want to know which of the benefits of meditation are really backed by science?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the web’s largest collection of research on meditation, “translated” for the general public.
In this massive article I have summarized several scientific discoveries on the benefits of meditation. Over 100 meditation studies were analyzed (some of which are in themselves analysis of other hundreds of studies), and categorized the findings into 76 benefits (divided into 46 subheadings). You will be surprised in reading some of these.[This article is also available in German, French, Italian, Chinese, and Korean. They are independent translations, done by LiveAndDare readers.]

You will noticed that on many blogs and forums when people answer the question “why should I meditate” or “what are the benefits of meditation”, they do mention a few health benefits, and spiritual benefits, but leave a lot behind; or they often lack scientific evidence backing up what they say (like this one).
There are over 3,000 scientific studies on the benefits of meditation, but I have not found any blog that compiles hundreds of researches into an organized article, so I decided to fill in the gap.
These studies were based on different types of meditation, and I have included details, whenever relevant. Some effects, such as increased compassion and social bonding, are more salient as a result of specific meditation techniques (such as loving-kindness, which is a Buddhist meditation).
However, my understanding and personal practice is that any kind of authentic meditation will include most of these benefits, in one degree or another. There is also evidence that the practice will be more beneficial for you if you find a technique that you like better.
To explore that further, check out the different types of meditation.
