Secrets of Meditation?
article mainly focuses on meditation as a
type of discipline, found in various forms in many cultures, by
which the practitioner attempts to get beyond the reflexive, 'thinking' mind (sometimes called
thinking' or 'logic') into a deeper, more devout,
or more relaxed state. The terms 'meditative practice'
and 'meditation' are mostly used here in this broad
meditation the meditator holds attention on a particular
object while consistently bringing the mind back to concentrate
on the chosen object. For example, in anapanasati, one pays
attention to the movement of one's breath.
meditation the meditator sits comfortably and silently,
centering attention by focusing awareness on an object or
process. The meditator is usually encouraged to maintain an open
focus or monitoring.
Evidence from neuroimaging
studies suggests that major categories of meditation,
defined by how they direct attention, appear to generate
different brainwave patterns. Some evidence also suggests that
using different focus objects may generate different brainwave
Core meditation techniques have been preserved in ancient
Buddhist texts and have proliferated and diversified through
teacher-student transmissions. Buddhists pursue meditation as
part of the path toward Enlightenment
and Nirvana. Buddhist meditation techniques have become
increasingly popular in the wider world, with many non-Buddhists
taking them up for a variety of reasons.
While there are some similar meditative practices — such as
breath meditation and various recollections (anussati) — that
are used across Buddhist schools, there is also significant
diversity. In the Theravāda tradition alone, there are over
fifty methods for developing mindfulness and forty for
developing concentration, while in the Tibetan
tradition there are thousands of visualization meditations.
meditation is a form of prayer in which a structured attempt
is made to get in touch with and deliberately reflect upon the
revelations of God. The word meditation comes from the Latin
word meditari which means to concentrate. Christian
meditation is the process of deliberately focusing on
specific thoughts (e.g. a biblical scene involving Jesus and the
Virgin Mary) and reflecting on their meaning in the context of
the love of God.
of Yoga help one to control the mind and senses so the ego
can be transcended and the true self (atman) experienced,
leading to moksha or liberation. According to Pantanjali's Ashtanga
yoga practice includes ethical discipline (Yamas), rules (Niyamas),
postures (Asanas), breath
control (Pranayama), withdrawal from the senses (Pratyahara),
one-pointedness of mind (Dharana), meditation
(Dhyana), and eventually Samadhi,
which is often described as the union of the Self (Atman) with
the omnipresent (Brahman), and is the ultimate goal of all Hindu
There are may branches of yoga that are said to help with the
development of meditational skills:
yoga where a mantra is recited constantly and can be either
a combination of core letters or words on deity or themes.
Yoga where the practitioner focuses on moving energy around
yoga where the practitioner will use the control of sexual
energy to help with meditation and manifestation
yoga where the practitioner will focus on geometrical
designs much like those used to represent the chakra
yoga has developed from new age tradition and a combination
of eastern philosophies. It advocates that becoming more aware
of your self and realizing your spiritual nature is something
that transcends religion

Taoism includes a number of meditative and contemplative
traditions, said to have their principles described in the I
Ching, Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tzu and Tao Tsang among other texts.
The multitude of schools relating to Qigong,
Neigong, Internal alchemy, Daoyin and Zhan zhuang is a large,
diverse array of breath-training practices in aid of meditation
with much influence on later Chinese Buddhism and with much
influence on traditional Chinese medicine and the Chinese as
well as some Japanese martial arts. The Chinese martial art T'ai
Chi Ch'uan is named after the well-known focus for Taoist
and Neo-Confucian meditation, the T'ai Chi T'u, and is often
referred to as “meditation in motion”.Often Taoist Internal
martial arts, especially Tai
Chi Chuan are thought of as moving meditation. A common
phrase being, "movement in stillness" referring to
energetic movement in passive Qigong
and seated Taoist meditation; with the converse being
"stillness in movement", a state of mental calm and
meditation in the tai chi form.
In a form of meditation using visualization, such as Chinese
Qi Gong, the practitioner concentrates on flows of energy (Qi)
in the body, starting in the abdomen and then circulating
through the body, until dispersed.

Use of Sound & Light Techniques
Sound and light techniques of meditation are based on the
results of studies with electroencephalography in long-term
meditators. Studies have demonstrated the presence of a
frequency-following response to auditory and visual stimuli.
This EEG activity was termed 'frequency-following
response' because its period (cycles per second)
corresponds to the fundamental frequency of the stimulus. Stated
plainly, if the stimulus is 5 Hz, the resulting measured EEG
will show a 5 Hz frequency-following response using appropriate
time-domain averaging protocols. This is the justification
behind such inventions as the Dreamachine and binaural
beats. Binaural beats and other audio techniques form the
basis of the techniques at Neurovector,
Sync and Binaural
A review of scientific studies identified relaxation,
concentration, an altered state of awareness, a suspension of
logical thought and the maintenance of a self-observing attitude
as the behavioral components of meditation; it is accompanied by
a host of biochemical and physical changes in the body that
alter metabolism, heart rate, respiration, blood pressure and
brain activation. Meditation has been used in clinical settings
as a method of stress
reduction. Meditation has also been studied specifically for
its effects on stress.
More recent research suggests that meditation may increase
attention spans. A recent randomized study published in
Psychological Science reported that practicing meditation led to
doing better on a task related to sustained attention.
should I meditate?
and the need to chill out is a familiar state for many of us.
Our world is fast, furious and exciting. It can also be
challenging, trying, demanding and frightening. All of these
situations produce stress, emotional reactions, anxiety, worry

We produce far more adrenalin than we need.
