Meditation Process

Meditation is an ancient technique used by mainly Indian sages. Yes, India is the origin of meditation, the technique of meditation is used and propagate in India generation by generation in the course of time. Today in India and also in many Foreign country, there are many sages are teaching this techniques. The Art of Living, The Bramhakumaris and The Ramdev Baba's organization are the pioneers of modern day meditation technique, before this organizations become popular, the meditation techniques are only known by some sages and their disciples. These organizations and organizations like this make it possible for a common man to learn meditation techniques without going to the Himalayas.

When I started the meditation, I was very much doubtful about this idea. I was suffering from anxiety and depression. So, one day I decided to learn meditation. I read many books mainly written by Swami Vivekananda and Sri Sri Rabi Shankar. After reading all these books and going to the Bramhakumari local centre, I finally decided to give it a try.

The simple way to meditate is very simple. The steps are best suited for me and I do it regularly. The steps are -

1. First you have to a little bit of exercise. It is like a starter. Just do some push ups, do some up and down, do some stretching. Main purpose is to get the blood circulate properly.

2. After doing first step for about ten minutes, you are ready for the second phase. In the second phase you will have to sit erect on the floor with a posture of 'Padmasana' .
Start breathing in and out in fast speed. Do it for two minutes.

3. Next step is to breath out as hard as possible for you. Only concentrate on breath out not breath in. Do it for five minutes or so. This process is called 'Kapalbhati'.

4. Finally after doing this you are ready for meditation. You will sit erect, don't need to do padmasana, sit in whatever posture you like. But keep your backbone straight.Now concentrate on you breathing.
I recommend no chanting of 'om' or anything, just sit and relax for ten minutes. Concentrate on your breath in and breath out. You will find it very hard to do. But with regular practice and hard work you will find the effect of meditation in your life gradually.

For a new meditator first week seems to be a boring activity. You will not find anything good in meditation but don't give up, the good things are which happened next in your life.

may I butt in …the concept of meditation is just to concentrate… all thoughts coming and going astray, you can meditate at any time ..day and place… as you walk up stairs or go up in an elevator… control your wavering thoughts …just repeat some mantra…. that concentrates the wilderness of one’s mind… and then clear up all cobwebs …and as you come out of the elevator you will find ….clarity and a straight direction… that alone is the aim of meditation …read and delete …you have your own mind...
