What is Meditation?
Here are the most common meditation techniques that you might come across:
Understanding the Mind
However, such a metaphor can be unhelpful as it makes the mind out to be an obstacle or inner enemy. This is what often makes people think meditation is hard and can be very off-putting when you are new to it and want to quieten your mind to reduce stress and anxiety.
Quietening the Mind
Your mind is always in search of happiness. The drive for happiness is natural in all of us and can take many forms. For some it may be a job promotion, others an academic achievement or a holiday in the sun.
How Vedic Meditation Works
Vedic practices work so effectively because they allow for the fact that our minds seek happiness and that we can’t achieve long-lasting bliss purely from an outer, real world search.
Unlike other meditations, transcendence doesn’t seek to control or cage your mind; rather it seeks to understand it.
By using the right mantras, your ever-busy mind can be calmed, settled and charmed to a place of pure inner bliss. As your mind soothes in this state of bliss, your body quietens, leaving you in a state of deep rest.
The simple fact that it allows your mind to be free and uncontrolled makes this meditation easy for you to learn, use and benefit from in your everyday life.
