Some Types Of Meditation Practices


It would be great to just sit effortlessly and drop the mind, commune with divine. It’s not an unrealistic, but it could be asking too much if its your first few times to meditate and you only ever do it sporadically. We can start with preparatory meditation skills comprised of exercises for increasing concentration.


One way to increase concentration is trataka. This is described in another classical book on yoga

- Hatha Yoga Pradipika written in the 15th century by Swami Swatmarama. “Trataka” refers to concentration or more specifically facing your eyes on one object. You can practice trataka on a picture of a mandala or a flame.


Anchoring the breath is an easy and effective way to prepare for meditation. You work simply with the natural breath and observe the breath going in and out of the body. This is a very good way to calm the busy mind.


You might want to try a guided or unguided meditation. Guided meditation is where an instructor talks you through the process, while unguided meditation is where you meditate on your own.

In guided meditation, an instructor helps you to relax and focus your attention. This type of meditation is especially helpful for beginners. In unguided meditation, there is no instructor, and you can choose your own pace and methods.

Vipassana Meditation

It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion.


Transcendental Meditation

FIrst, try to develop equanimity for all beings. Increase the feeling of metta and try to generate the same feeling across all beings. First being - someone you love, second being - a stranger, third being – an enemy.


Centered Meditation

Concentrating on a solitary item during the entire reflection meditation. This item might be the breath, a mantra, representation, part of the body, outer article, and so on.
