Mindfulness Meditation

                                                    First find a place which is not too noisy and crowded, where you will not get disturbed. Second wear something comfortable clothes. Too tight cloths will distract you. Hey, check out my clothes for Meditation & Yoga on Amazon, Click here, Meditation - Yoga Clothes.

                                                            For meditation your posture must be comfortable and relax.  Seat in comfortable posture or pose I prefer   'Lotus pose' (Padmasana)‘Half lotus pose’ and  'Thunder-bolt pose'(Vajrasana) for meditation. Take any   Mudra   (hand gesture) you like for meditation. I prefer   Dhyan mudra   and   Gyan mudra for meditation. You can meditate sitting on the ground or chair or on  Yoga Mat (comfortable one), which I purchased from Amazon.

                                                    As you seat in comfortable  posture  and took  mudra  with your eyes closed, concentrate on your breathing or internal sound like Heart beat. Now don’t take deep breath, your breathing must be natural just like in relax position at home after office work. Don’t chant any mantra or pray. Stop your thinking and thoughts. Then you reach at the new state of mind, is called as ‘Zero thinking state’.

                                                    Continuously concentrate on your breathing. Focus on when you are inhaling and exhaling. Don't control your breath, simply be mindful of it. When your mind is distracted because of thoughts, gently recognize that you have been distracted and come back  your attention on when you are inhale and exhale. 

                                                   And then slowly –slowly your depth of breath will decrease or reduce and then it will get too low, small and light. Give attention to the present moment, be aware of what is going on around you. Just listen and feel it. Don’t judge it. Don’t give specific name to describe it or what’s the meaning of it. Don’t think about it. Just give attention. This state of mind is called as ‘Thoughtless awareness’. This is “Meditation State”.

                                                    The more you practice this type of meditation, the better you will avoid distraction caused by mentally (thoughts) and physically (pain from seating so long & may others too).
