What is meditation?

Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.

How to meditate?

Osho says, when people come to me and they ask, "How to meditate?" I tell them, "There is no need to ask how to meditate, just ask how to remain unoccupied. Meditation happens spontaneously.  Just ask how to remain unoccupied, that's all. That's the whole trick of meditation - how to remain unoccupied. Then you cannot do anything. The meditation will flower."

Meditation is training your mind to remian thoughtless. We are so pre-occupied with our daily chores and the worries associated with them, that we forget the actual capabilities of our mind. Meditation is like a trek on a mountain. When you reach the top, you can see the vastness of the universe, of which we are oblivious of in our daily routines.

 

The experiences of some of the participants are shared below (names have been omitted to maintain the confidentiality of the participants):

“The best part about the whole experience is that the meditations were conducted in stages which made me more patient with myself and understand the whole idea of changing oneself through meditations.”

 

“My first experience with any kind of meditation, but I felt connected with myself. Thank you. Beautiful and wonderful.”

 

“The overall experience has been quite satisfying and enthralling.”

 

“Keep up the good work.”

 

“My experience was excellent.”

 

“I was never into meditation but after coming here I am looking forward to deeper stages of meditation. It was a great experience for me.”
