The art of nude meditation, its power and and positive thoughts

Meditation in its many forms

The art of meditation has been around for many decades in fact there are references to meditation with Rishabha in Jainism which go back to the prehistoric age, earliest written records of meditation date back to 1500BC.
In around 500-600BC Taoists in China and Buddhists in India began to develop meditative practices. The different forms mediation takes, depends mainly on the religion it is based on, and there are many.

  • Buddhist
  • Christian
  • Hindu
  • Islamic
  • And Taois

Be at peace with yourself

We in the west link meditation and contemplation together, and many mediators meditate without any religious connection at all.
There are hundreds of specific types of meditation; all meaning different things to different people and different religions.

A Muslim is obliged to pray at least five times a day: once before sunrise, at noon, in the afternoon, after sunset, and once at night.
During prayer a Muslim focuses and meditates on God by reciting the Qur’an, with the purpose of guiding the soul to truth. This is intended to help maintain a feeling of spiritual peace

Meditation is the road to enlightenment.

The word itself means many things as well as contemplation it could mean, to ponder, to prey, spiritual exercises, concentrate and so on and so forth, in fact the word meditation comes from the Latin word meditari which means to concentrate
To quote from the English translation of “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying”

The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this life. For it is only through meditation that you can undertake the journey
to discover your true nature, and so find the stability
and confidence you will need to live, and die, well.


New Age meditations influenced by mysticism, Yoga, Hinduism and Buddhism came about in the 1960s and 1970s as a way of rebelling against traditional beliefs, the early hippies used it to “releasing oneself from conscious thinking”. Along with chanting of a mantra, or focusing on an object many groups would combine it with yoga so as to control the mind and breathing.

Nude Meditation

If you get a wild urge to really connect with your inner self there is always nude meditation
If you have ever “skinny dipped” (swam in the nude) you will know of the amazing feeling of freedom, it the same feeling that naturists say they feel once they shed all their cloths.

The same feeling of freedom can be achieved with nude meditation, I have to admit you feel a bit stupid at first, but that will soon go.
once you have removed all your cloths (best not do this in the supermarket) but find a place where you feel safe and free, take of your glasses you won’t need them, you will see all you need to see without them, now remove your jewellery and anything else you wear, the idea is to be completely free of all the things that restrict you.

Breath in through your nose and out through your mouth and just concentrate on the air going through your body, think about smell, touch, taste, and hearing, do it for as long as you want, I usually take about fifteen minutes, and remember when you feel you have had enough, take your time in coming back, its important. Allow the sense of peace and freedom to be with you for the rest of the day.

it is such a pity that most cultures see nudity as bad.

we would all benefit from nude meditation, and nude lots of things...

you are so very right Mark, to be totally free of all things and restraints would allow one to meditate in a way to allow your mind to be free.
Nudity could not be more natural.

Great! Really Great! If more people allowed themselves the time to meditate, the hang ups about what is perceived as good or bad would drift away like smoke in a gentle breeze. I hadn’t thought of meditating naked, it seems logical to physically represent what you are doing spiritually. Stripping away the garments soiled with self defeating belief, to stand naked for a time. This article runs in line with a concept I developed a few years back called, Need More Naked. With your permission I would like to link your article on my site. It is needmorenaked.net if you would like to see what it is about.

Johny,
That's a great article! The naked truth! Though I might not meditate naked, I know even the nicest thing in life which makes life, is more enjoyable when you're fully naked! Look out for "A rich Man Can't Make Love" coming soon!

I hadn't heard of this before but need to try it. Will need to work up the courage. Silly how, even in our own homes, many of us feel bad walking about nude (I'm one of them). Thanks for the wonderful article and stunning images :D
