Simple Meditation(s)

Remaining silent is meditation

Meditation is an experience that no body can teach you. Neither can we go to deep into meditation suddenly as it’s a practice and a habit that is formed over a period of time.

Meditation means, to remain silent. Though, thoughts keep appearing. If any thought is present then it’s not meditation.

How to remain thoughtless? How to remain silent in spite of thoughts? Mind can cling to picture or a mantra.

Do we have a mantra for silence? There is no mantra for silence.

However, there is a technique to create silence.

The technique is as follows…

  • When a thought comes don’t resist it. Say inside you, ‘this is my thought’. Thus, you disassociate yourself from the thought.
  • Then ask the question to yourself, ‘Can I let go this thought?’ It will go. You can also say “release”. Then it will go. Now there will be at least a one second gap between two thoughts. This is equivalent to one hour of meditation. In general, we never have a gap between thoughts as we might have ten thoughts in one second.
  • If you do not want the “let go” step, then form your own mantra or word. When we say that mantra, we create a gap between the thoughts.
  • When a thought comes, interrupt it with the mantra and you will become silent. When another thought comes, say the mantra once again.

The silence thus formed in between chanting the mantra is meditation.

Pranic and physical bodies has to be in coordination

Our pranic body and physical body have to be in coordination. Otherwise, we can’t meditate.

If we regulate our breathing pattern or do pranayama then they will be in coordination. This is because both breathing and prana have the same origin. When breathing is regulated, prana is regulated too.

Pranic body has to be clear of impurities

When the pranic body is clean, then the meditation can be done successfully.

Why so much impurities in the Pranic field?  It’s due to the mind. Our own sadness and worries create these impurities.

With the help of pranayama, one can clear these impurities.

How to acquire a good breathing pattern?

  • When you meditate, place the index finger at the base of the thumb on both the hands. Breathing will get deeper and you could meditate properly, as shallow breathing spoils the meditation.
  • Don’t take the index finger straight away move your finger to the base of the thumb. First touch the tip of thumb with the index finger. Then after some time, move the index finger to the middle of the thumb, and finally to the base of the thumb.
  • Don’t do it mechanically. Feel the breath with a conscious awareness.
  • Observing your breathing is also a good way to meditate. This is part of meditation known as Vipasana meditation.

Do the space meditation now

  • After learning to breathe well, do the space meditation.
  • Be aware of the space between the chair you are sitting and the wall in front of you. Don’t look at the wall. Instead look at the space between you and the wall.
  • This is known as ‘Space Meditation’.
  • Keep the eyes open throughout.

Chanting mantra during meditation

It’s nature of our mind to cling to something. You can choose a mantra to do that. After sometime you should be able to say goodbye to it. Mantra by itself is not divine.

Chanting means constantly thinking about a word, which is a mantra. Ultimately that also should go.

When it will go? We don’t know. May be, it’s not in this Janma. 

Manage your Prana, Manage your Health

We can chant the names of the five pranas as switch words. They are very important to our life. Chant their names, “PRANA APANA VYANA UDHANA SAMANA”. It will help your pranic body.

In death-bed

Particularly among these five pranas, UDHANAN is very important. It does not mean that others are less important. If UDHANAN is not activated, when the time comes for death, the person will not die and will be bedridden, prolonging the dying process.

For this, activation of UDHANA is very important. When UDHANAN works in the body, the prana goes out of the body. If UDHANAN is not functioning properly, the person will be in the death-bed for longer period of time.

How to activate these pranas?

Chant the mantra, “PRANAYA SWAHA, APANAYA SWAHA, VYANAYA SWAHA, UDHANAYA SWAHA, SAMANAYA SWAHA”.

Swaha means to prostrate. 

Vyana is our gene. It is sitting in the pranic field.

When you’re stuck in a problem situation

If you are stuck in a problem then it means Udhana is not working properly. Be in Adi Mudra (thumb has to touch the base of the little finger, and it has to be closed by other four fingers, on both hands) and chant the switch words. From any problem – you will be able to come out of it.

When Udhana is not active – let us understand the principle here. When it is not active you are in the bed, that is, it is not coming out of the body. Like that when you are stuck in the problem you are not coming out of it. So your Udhana is not active. At that time with Adi Mudra, you can chant the mantra.
