Meditation is an intensely personal and spiritual experience. The desired purpose of each meditation technique is to channel our awareness into a more positive direction by totally transforming one's state of mind. To meditate is to turn inwards, to concentrate on the inner self.
There are a number of meditation techniques for effective meditation.
Different cultures have different mediation techniques, but one thing is certain - meditation is universal. The different techniques are suited to different personality types. While some techniques are concentrative, involving focusing, other techniques are expansive such as 'Vipassana' meditation which allows for the free flow of thoughts and their observation.
Presented below are some of the common meditation methods. Only a brief insight is provided and meditation should be learnt under the guidance of a Guru.
