Easy Meditation

I will tell you the simplest and best technique for meditation. Find a clean place. Sit in a position that is most comfortable for you and close your eyes. Then begin to concentrate on the darkness behind your eyelids. Watch the flow of your thoughts and do not try to stop the flow. Simply observe. To keep your attention focused, chant any mantra. Meditate like this for at least 10 minutes.


Open your eyes slowly. The simplest form of concentrative meditation is to sit quietly and focus the attention on the breath. Yoga and meditation practitioners believe that there is a direct correlation between one's breath and one's state of mind. For example, when a person is anxious, scared, agitated, or distracted, the breath tends to get shallow, rapid, and uneven. On the other hand, when the mind is calm, focused, clear and composed, the breath is slow, deep, and regular.

Focusing the mind on the continuous rhythm of inhalation and exhalation is a natural, easy way to meditate. As you focus your awareness on the breath, your mind becomes absorbed in the rhythm of the inhalation and exhalation. As a result, your breathing will become slower and deeper, and the mind becomes more tranquil and aware.
