What is not Meditation

Myths about Meditation

Let’s start asking yourself a question that what is Meditation ? or What is not a Meditation ?   what-is-not-meditation

Here is a list of the most common Rumours – Myths about meditation, hoping that any confusion that you might have is cleared.

#1 Meditation is Concentration

meditation-is-not-consentration

Meditation is actually de-concentration. Concentration is a benefit of meditation. The concentration requires effort and meditation is the absolute relaxation of the mind. Meditation is letting go, and when that happens, you are in a state of deep rest. When the mind is relaxed, we can concentrate better.

#2 Meditation, A Religious Practice

img-20161003-wa0005

Yoga and meditation are ancient practices that transcend all religions. For meditation, there is no bar on any religion. In fact, meditation has the ability to bring religions, nations, and faiths together. Just like the sun shines for everyone and the wind blow for everyone, meditation benefits everyone. “We encourage people from all backgrounds, religions, and cultural traditions to come together and meditate in a spirit of celebration,” says Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (Meditation Guru).

#3 Sit In The Lotus Posture To Meditate

beginner-meditation-techniques-meditation-india-2017-2020

The Patanjali yoga sutras are perhaps one of the most scientific and detailed studies that man has produced dealing with the nature of the mind. “Sthirasukhamasanam,’’ a yoga sutra by Patanjali explains that while meditating it is more important to be comfortable and steady. This helps us to have a deeper experience in meditation. You can sit cross-legged, on a chair, in a sofa – it is fine. Yet when you start your meditation it is good to maintain a posture where the spine is erect and head, neck, and shoulders are relaxed.

#4 Meditation Is For Old People

Meditation at Tapovan Rishikesh

Meditation is universal and adds value to lives of people of all age groups. One can start mediating at the age of eight or nine. Just like a shower keeps the body clean, meditation is like the shower for the mind.

“After practicing meditation, I do not get as angry as before,” shares Sandra, a middle school student. “Just a few minutes of meditation keeps me calm all day,” shares 19-year-old Karan, another young mediator. “Meditation gives me the zeal and enthusiasm to spread positivity around me,” shares a 25-year-old.

#5 Meditation Is Like Hypnotizing Yourself

Meditation is an antidote for hypnosis. In hypnotism, the person is not aware of what he or she is going through. Meditation is complete awareness of each and every moment. Hypnotism takes the person through the same impressions that are in his mind. Meditation frees us from these impressions so that our consciousness is fresh and clear. Hypnotism increases metabolic activity, meditation reduces it. “Those who practice pranayama and meditation regularly cannot be hypnotized easily,” says Most famous Meditation master.

#6 Meditation Is Thought Control

Thoughts do not come to us by invitation. We become aware of them only after they have arrived! Thoughts are like clouds in the sky. They come and go on their own. Trying to control thoughts involves effort and the key to a relaxed mind is effortlessness. In meditation, we do not crave for good thoughts nor are we averse to bad thoughts. We simply witness and eventually transcend thoughts and move into that deep inner silent space.

#7 Meditation Is A Way Of Running Away From Problems

On the contrary, meditation empowers you to face problems with a smile. Skills develop in us to handle situations in a pleasant and constructive manner through yoga and meditation. We develop the ability to accept situations as they are and take conscious action instead of brooding over the past or worrying about the future. Meditation nurtures inner strength and self-esteem. It acts like an umbrella during rainy days. Challenges will arise, but we can still move ahead with confidence.

#8 You Have To Meditate For Hours To Go Deep

You do not have to sit for hours to have a deeper experience in meditation. The connection with that deep inner core of your being, your source can happen in just a fraction of a moment. Just a 20-minute session of Sahaj Samadhi meditation every morning and evening are sufficient to take you on this beautiful inward journey. As you practice your meditation every day, the quality of your meditation will improve gradually.

#9 If You Meditate, You Will Become A Sanyasi (Monk or Recluse)

You do not have to give up material life to meditate or progress on the spiritual path. In fact, the quality of your enjoyment improves greatly as you meditate. With a relaxed and peaceful mind, you are able to live happily and make others in your family and surroundings happy too.

#10 You Can Only Meditate At Certain Times, Facing Certain Directions

what-is-not-meditation

Anytime is a good time for meditation and all directions are good for meditation. The only thing to keep in mind is that your stomach should not be full; else you may doze off instead of meditating. However, it is a good practice to meditate during sunrise and sunset (morning and evening) as it can keep you calm and energetic throughout the day.

We hope they help to bring greater clarity on the effect and the benefits of meditation in your lives and reinforce the need to meditate. Meditate with us- be a part of Mantra Yoga & Meditation

Patanjali -Yoga & Pranayama for Beginners

Maharshi Patanjali

For Yoga  Beginners  – Know about  Yoga and Pranayama  from Patanjali

Before taking to yoga or pranayama as a regular practice, try to know what it all means in the deeper sense, so that it can be effective, advises Sarvottam Kumar that, When many yogis would meditate in close proximity all at the same time for days together, a strong energy field would get created which would attract people from far and wide. When these visitors would come near the caves and peep inside, all they would see were physical postures of different kinds. Patanjali, the great exponent of yoga has listed 84 such asanas or postures, named mainly after animals and birds.

What is Yoga ? How it is begin and taken to the human practice. If you are wondering to know more about Beginning of Yoga and its growth for humankind. Watch this video about #Yoga – Click on Yoga 5000 Years Ago to view the video.

Yoga 5000 Years Ago

 

These onlookers would go back with the impression that yoga was nothing but physical asanas. Then, different variations would be added to the practice such as Hot Yoga,Tantric Yoga,RelaxationYoga, HathaYoga,PartnerYoga, Integral Yoga and what not. But, again the story will be no different. All such practices require lot of effort and application of will from the ego centre which goes totally against the very grain of the asanas,which according to Patanjali is sthir sukham asanam — the posture should be steady, comfortable, and grounded in joy.

 

Moreover, asanas is only one of the lower eight rungs of yoga as propounded by Patanjali. Once it is practiced rightly, practice of higher rungs, such as yogic breathing or pranayama, pratyahara, Dharana, dhyana and samadhi become automatic. Breath is our connection with body and mind. What’s the correct way of doing yogic breathing? The best way is really not doing anything at all but just let be — into our own being. At this stage, it is better to have little idea about our breathing patterns.

 

If you place your finger immediately below your nostrils, you will experience that only one nostril is active or more active at a given time and after some time, another nostril takes over but both of them are not equally active at the same time. Our body has 72,000 nadis or energy channels of which three of them are the most important — Ida, Pingala and Sushumna. Ida is related with left nostril breathing, Pingala with right nostril breathing while sushumna is when both the nostrils become equally active.

 

Sushumna has been active since we were born and were a toddler and becomes active even now when we are in a deep dreamless sleep state. When you see a toddler lying on its back,you can clearly see how its stomach goes up and down rhythmically and breath is taking place from both the nostrils in equal measure. But, as we age,we get inputs from society in the form of fear and desire and our breath not only becomes shallow, but finally becomes, one-nostril-at-a-time centric. The aim of yogic breathing is to be in a condition of deep dreamless sleep state while we are awake.

 

So sit in a relaxed position, close your eyes and just be yourself effortlessly. Whatever thoughts invade your mind, treat them as unwanted guests and they will go away by themselves. This will make your mind quiescent, your breathing rate minimal, and finally, your inhalation will become smoother and silken. Both the nostrils will become equally active at the same time which will establish you in the state of sushumna and will centre your mind and being. Sushumna actually means sukhamana — a joyful mind.

 

In this state, you would experience timelessness and receive insights from your very core of being and attain a state of satchitanada or a blissful state of pure awareness of the eternal. Patanjali described the whole process in just a few words: prayatna shaithilya ananta samapattibhyam — perfecting the posture of relaxing and allowing attention to merge with the Infinite. We feel we are breathing perfectly with just one nostril being active at a time. Only when we are in a state of sushumna, do we know that what we had assumed to be perfect, was just a tiny part of what we are capable of achieving.

 

You have seen how a little learning can lead to huge confusing beliefs which then become hard to change and this is true for all aspects of our lives. Very aptly, Alexander Pope had said: “A little learning is a dangerous thing Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, And drinking largely sobers us again”.

Pranayama- Breathing Practice

How does practicing mindfulness meditation lead to increased well-being? There is a lot of research conveying mindfulness meditation’s positive impact upon psychological well-being.

In fact, a vast literature of controlled studies has found that mindfulness meditation is related to improved mental health across a variety of disorders, including different anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, and chronic pain symptom reduction.

Yet, the idea of mindfulness has become a buzzword, and despite research regarding positive outcomes, specific mechanisms associated with mindfulness and psychological well-being are unclear. (Additionally, the ambiguity in the term mindfulness, and how it’s approached in research, makes it difficult to parse out particular mechanisms responsible for clinical outcomes.)

IMG_0947.JPG

Mindfulness and Attention Mechanisms

Despite these limitations, many research studies seem to indicate that cultivating different aspects of attention is a feasible and consistent starting point to bridging mindfulness practice and psychological well-being.

The question remains: How can cultivating multiple aspects of attention through mindfulness meditation account for psychological well-being?

This blog post is based on a review that supports a previously suggested idea that cultivating all aspects of attention through mindfulness leads to greater well-being by decreasing rumination.

Attention Networks

Like mindfulness meditation itself, attention is not easily defined.

Over two decades ago, researchers conveyed a conceptualization of attention as a multifaceted construct made up of the three unique and differentiated, yet overlapping networks called Alerting, Orienting, and Executive Attention — the latter includes regulatory processes like conflict-monitoring and metacognition.

Mindfulness — Breathing-focus-Moment on Moment.

Attention Regulation

Attention is also described in terms of the way it is regulated. In fact, meditation practices are usually described by the degree to which they entail “Focused Attention (FA)” and “Receptive Attention (RA).”

Although sometimes likened specifically to RA, mindfulness practice is distinguishable by its utilization of both FA and RA.

Focused Attention

When our attention is focused, it is restricted to a specific object, which is commonly the neutral sensory experience of the breath going in and out.

Ideally, attention is sustained, but as thoughts, and/or feelings and/or physical sensations arise, a conflict is presented; different stimuli are pulling for attention.

Receptive Attention

After consistent practice, there is often less need for a specific object of focus (the breath), and we broaden the focus of our attention so that it is receptive to our entire field of awareness, including whatever thoughts, feelings and sensations arise in the moment.

Rumination

Rumination has been defined as a passive dwelling upon negative thoughts and/or emotion and is negatively correlated with aspects of psychological well-being.

As mentioned, this review supports mindfulness meditation’s role in improved psychological well-being, through the mechanism of reducing rumination via attentional processes.

The question remains as to how this actually plays out.

20151212_110853.jpg
Experiencing-The Silence

Distraction and De-centering

Rumination is decreased through a two-step process including distraction and decentering. These steps correspond to the attention regulation styles inherent to mindfulness meditation.

Early on in one’s mindfulness meditation practice, when it entails focused attention, attention is sustained on the neutral sensation of the breath. While this skill is being cultivated, ruminative thought processes likely interrupt the effort to sustain this attention.

The ability to monitor conflicts of attention, however, ensures that one is constantly distracting oneself from ruminative thoughts through the redirection of attention from rumination back to the breath.

According to the research, distraction is a healthier response to stress than rumination and entails a deliberate direction of attention away from ruminative thoughts onto a pleasant or neutral stimulus.

Yet, research also indicated that although distraction is important, it only serves as temporary relief, because with distraction, avoidance is taking place.

In the long term, avoiding and pushing away thoughts through distraction is as inefficient as clinging to them through rumination. So, there is a process beyond distraction.

Mindfulness meditation utilizes the benefits of distraction, but then goes beyond it in cultivating a more adaptive response to distress.

This is enabled through receptive attention, during which attentional focus is broadened and one is encouraged to be aware of all experiences. One now has the space to actually notice patterns of over-engagement in negative thoughts as opposed to suppressing them through distraction.

The ability to cultivate a broader range of awareness also cultivates the ability to decenter, which is enabled through enhanced metacognition, and allows for a stepping back from any possible secondary elaboration of ruminative thoughts.

This means that thoughts are nonjudgmentally accepted as just thoughts that come and go. When thoughts are seen as transient, one is more likely to feel disconnected to them.

Mindfulness-Being-in-Present

How Mindfulness Meditation Creates a Shift

The idea inherent in both distraction and decentering is that a shift is taking place.

During the former, one’s ability to distract and redirect attention away from rumination and to sustain attention on the neutral breath is a literal shift in attention that cultivates regulatory processes intrinsic to psychological well-being.

During the latter, one has the opportunity to figuratively shift attention from the content of a thought toward the process of having one. That vantage point allows for a more objective and less judgmental perspective. This perspective is more adaptive and reflected in greater psychological well-being.

Ultimately, engaging in mindfulness meditation cultivates our ability to both focus and broaden our attention, which is a practical way to elicit psychological well-being.
