Meditation 101 – The Basics of Meditation

Meditation 101 - The Basics of Meditation

Meditation refers to a state where your body and mind are consciously relaxed and focused. Practitioners of this art report increased awareness, focus, and concentration, as well as a more positive outlook in life.

Meditation is most commonly associated with monks, mystics and other spiritual disciplines. However, you don’t have to be a monk or mystic to enjoy its benefits. And you don’t even have to be in a special place to practice it. You can even try it in your own living room!

Although there are many different approaches to meditation, the fundamental principles remain the same. The most important among these principles is that of removing obstructive, negative, and wandering thoughts and fantasies, and calming the mind with a deep sense of focus. This clears the mind of debris and prepares it for a higher quality of activity.

The negative thoughts you have about those of noisy neighbors, bossy office mates, the parking ticket you got, and unwanted spam are said to contribute to the ‘polluting’ of the mind... Shutting them out allows for the ‘cleansing’ of the mind so that it may focus on deeper, more meaningful thoughts.

Some practitioners even shut out all sensory input - no sights, no sounds, and nothing to touch. They try to detach themselves from the commotion around them. Shutting out the world allows you to focus on deep, profound thoughts, if this is your goal. The silence may seem deafening at first, since we are all too accustomed to constantly hearing and seeing things, but as you continue this exercise, you will find yourself becoming more aware of everything around you.

If you find the meditating positions you see on television threatening - those with impossibly arched backs, and painful-looking contortions, you need not worry. The principle here is to be in a comfortable position conducive to concentration. This may be while sitting cross-legged, standing, lying down, and even walking.

If the position allows you to relax and focus, then that would be a good starting point. While sitting or standing, the back should be straight, but not tense or tight. In other positions, the only no-no is slouching and falling asleep.

Loose, comfortable clothes help a lot in the process, since tight fitting clothes have a tendency to choke you and make you feel tense.

The place you perform meditation should have a soothing atmosphere. It may be in your living room, or bedroom, or any place that you feel comfortable in. You might want an exercise mat, if you plan to take on the more challenging positions (if you feel more focused doing so, and if the contortionist in you is screaming for release). You may want to have the place arranged so that it is soothing to your senses.

Silence helps most people relax and meditate, so you may want a quiet, isolated area, far from the ringing of the phone or the humming of the washing machine. Pleasing scents also help in that regard, so stocking up on aromatic candles isn’t such a bad idea either.

The monks you see on television making those monotonous sounds are actually chanting a mantra. This, in simple terms, is a short creed, a simple sound which, for these practitioners, holds a mystic value.

You do not need to perform such; however, it would pay to note that focusing on repeated actions such as breathing, and humming help the practitioner enter a higher state of consciousness.

The principle here is focus. You could also try focusing on a certain object or thought, or even, while keeping your eyes open, focus on a single sight.

One sample routine would be to, while in a meditative state, silently name every part of you body and focusing your consciousness on that part. While doing this, you should be aware of any tension on any part of your body. Mentally visualize releasing this tension. It works wonders.

There are also many meditation CDs on the market that have been scientifically proven to alter your brainwaves in such a way to help you achieve deep meditation. Find out more about these here: Meditation CDs.

In all, meditation is a relatively risk-free practice and its benefits are well worth the effort (or non-effort remember - we are relaxing).

Studies have shown that meditation does bring about beneficial physiologic effects to the body. And there has been a growing consensus in the medical community to further study the effects of such. So start now in creating your health and well being... start meditating today!

Can We Attain Charmananda – The Eternal Orgasm?
Jun 19th, 2010 by Aldouspi

tantra eternal orgasm

Ancient Tantra Concept - Charmananda - The Eternal Orgasm
By Acharya Subhojit Dasgupta

Tantra teaches us that desire is all-pervasive - that it exists in us, at all times. Whether we indulge in it or suppress it constantly, few of us understand it.

While Gautama Buddha said that desire is suffering., a tantra master will extrapolate on this thought thus - to desire is to suffer, but only when you do not know how to desire.

A tantra teacher believes in the goodness of desire and affirms its importance. In today's world, where the social, economical and political milieu demands that we keep up with the Joneses or get morally battered by them, it is important to pursue our desires. However, we must do so intelligently, resourcefully and esoterically. An accomplished tantra master can show the right way to pursue your desires.

When you learn tantra, you learn to understand your desires, rather than deny or suppress them. You must allow your desires to reach the very peak of their urgency, before satiating them.

Tantra propounds that desire, in itself, is not a sin. There is no such thing as shameful desire - however, the intention behind that desire may be sinful and shameful for mortal beings.

Tantra teaches us that everyone and everything exists in this world for a reason. To find our purpose is our life's primary objective - the next is to fulfill it. Living, without understanding our purpose, is futile.

Desires are integral to our being. To deny them is to deny a large part of our essential being.

Life is meant to be a celebration - and enjoyment. This state of blissful celebration is what Tantra calls 'Charmananda' (the eternal orgasm). Yes, this sounds extravagant and perhaps even impossible, but tantra brings it within reach.

However, you can only attain Charmananada, if you practice tantra diligently under the expert guidance of an accomplished tantra teacher.

Why do so few attain this heavenly state that ancient tantra can transport us to? The reason is sad, yet simple - most of those who begin to learn tantra fall by the wayside, because they cannot reconcile their esoteric practices in their daily lives.

However, relentless and expertly guided pursuit of tantra precepts and practices can help you incorporate your new found knowledge into mainstream life, thereby transforming your life into a continuous explosion of Charmananda.

Desire is not evil. Everything in life is worth acquiring, provided that we understand the desired object's rightful place in our life. Understanding the right way to cater to and fulfill our desires is vital.

Ironically, though we have all the technological conveniences of modern life, we have lost the essence of life itself. Our ancestors had a firm grasp on this essence. When you practice tantra, it will help you rediscover your rightful love for life!
