Meditation is the mental enrichment with positive energy. As the body needs the food, mind needs positive energy. A positive mind alone can become a strong mind.
Today we are disturbed because of ill health, stress and strain, competition and criticism from others, al because of our weak mind. A weak minded person always justifies himself by blaming others and situations. A strong minded person thinks creatively, acts positively and accepts boldly.
Through meditation we can develop a positive mind which accepts every thing rejects nothing. It learns even from enemies and turn al adversities into advantages. A positive minded person is always active and Time provides him with lot of opportunities. Such a person can never fail in life.
For a beginner, the meditation technique can be as follows:
step 1. Sit in a comfortable erect position (Sukhasan, Padmasan, Artha Padmasan or Vajrasan etc) on a mat. Take a deep breath in, then hold breath, recite AUM as lengthy as you can, and breathe out. Do this for 21 times.
step 2. Alongwith deep inhaling, mentally recite “Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare”. while exhaling, recite “Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare”.
Rama represents the mind or Jeevathma and Krishna represents the universal soul or Paramathma.
While inhaling you should understand and feel that the mind has entered into this body. While exhaling, as your breath merges into the outer air, similarly your mind merges into universal Self Paramathma.
Practise this for twenty minutes.
