What is Inner Peace? Why is it important?
It is not merely the years long meditation and days long prayers of hermits and yogis that let them attain Inner Peace. Nor is it their desire for distance and solitude. The truth is, inner peace, as implied, is inner and comes from within. Come what may, and go wherever, inner peace, attained properly, is universal, forever, and regardless of external conditions.
What is inner peace?
Inner peace is a state of mental, physical, and emotional well-being and balance and control. Irrespective of a person’s external conditions, inner peace lets you control your thoughts and emotions, your mind, and your reactions. It is a state that offers and gives a sense of tranquillity, harmony, balance, and serenity. It is important to have inner peace not only in smooth sailing times, but also in trying situations where one often loses control.
You do not need some fancy equipment or a treatment worth a few thousand bucks to gain inner peace. It is a state of mind that can be achieved wherever you are, and at any age, regardless of external factors. Different people take different time to gain it, some achieving a pace faster than others, but everyone can.

Simple answer: you can get many benefits and advantages in life having Inner Peace. It eliminates your anxieties, tensions, depression, fears, and your worries. It lets you deal with situations in a poised and proper manner while allowing happiness, calmness, and inner strength to flow.
