Hail the Great Core Bodhisattva!

The human musculoskeletal system consists of a dual structure: the core, which comprises the inner muscles of the pelvis and spinal cord; and the meridians and tendons of the periphery.

Since ancient times, humans have developed their core inner muscles by stilling the mind and practising meditation. The only muscles which are working during meditation are the inner muscles which constitute the core of the body. These muscle groups can be trained selectively to grow prolifically. As the core becomes more robust one’s health increases, and one’s state of mind becomes more stable. In this way, mindfulness materializes in the physical body.
