If you're interested in to know yourself, you should look inward.
It's a well-known fact that 'everything happens for a reason.' Then, what is the purpose of you coming in this world? Why did you take birth? Is it a freewill or really a myth?

If you're a seeker of such answers, you should look inward. Looking inward into your life or your existence (with open or closed eyes) is called "meditation" in English. Actually, the word "meditation" comes from a version of 'medication'. If someone is ill from the body, the doctor gives him medication. Similarly, if someone is ill from the mind, meditation is suggested. But these are limited to health only - it may be bodily or mind-related.

Actually, the "meditation" is the wrong word for this. There is no such word in English. In Sanskrit/Hindi/Marathi any many other Indian languages, we call it Dhyan, Dhyana or Dhyanam. The Japanese word "Zen" is also the same and derived from Sanskrit word "Dhyan".

I've spent nights in the Himalayas and visited many Gurus to learn different types of techniques and styles of Dhyana. I want to share this knowledge with you all (free) as this is how got it.

Practicing Anapanasati meditation according to the spiritual experiences and spiritual knowledge of the Sadhak Anshit 

is very simple, and the difficulty is not in the same. It is very easy. Anyone can start practicing Anapanasati meditation directly, only to be cautious of her general breathing - questionnaire.
In Pali language,

'An' means breathing

'Apan' means breathing

'Sati' means 'to be together'

Gautam Buddha taught this method of meditation thousands of years ago. We breathe all of us, but we are not conscious of this action. In 'Anapanasati', a person needs to keep his complete focus and awareness on his normal respiratory process. It is necessary that we keep our eye on consciousness consciously, the operation of breath should be moving naturally. Do not stop breathing in any form, nor do it keep on sticking. We do not have to try to bring any kind of change in its speed on our part. When the mind starts running around, it should immediately stop the thoughts and bring the meditation on the normal rhythm of breath. Leaving yourself loosened should become an observer only.

While practicing Anapanasati, we can do two things together: to observe your breath and to do the other thing - to let your consciousness expand ... to increase awareness. Being conscious of breath means not to let thoughts control the mind. These thoughts only drag our energy and scatter them. That is why the cycle of thoughts should be stopped with birth. Observation of breath means that we should not look at any of our physical senses or thoughts in our form by affecting the rhythm of our breath, only look at it.

Sadhak Anshit explain that when the energy of the soul is expended by our troubled and eternal thoughts, then our physical body becomes weak. In such a situation, there are various types of external attacks. In effect, a person gets many diseases, old age comes and soon he becomes a victim of death. Those who do not refine their mind, their mind remains unsteady. Just as a farm, which is not prepared for agriculture, is filled with rubbish, in the same way an autocratic mind is filled with unwanted ideas. So in the beginning, meditation means making the mind calm and unstable. Soon a deep resting stage is achieved. When the mind becomes empty with thoughts then huge amount of global energy starts filling in the body. As we go into meditation, new intense experience, The new scenes make us and we reunite with world-consciousness. We reach a world full of surprises which are waiting for us. The more effort you make, the easier it becomes to get awareness.

To become Anapanasati meditator, there is no need to go to any ashram. Neither does he have to go to a holy place or sacrifice his responsibilities. We can live our normal life and can see how the power of meditation makes us better in every field. At the beginning it would be good to be meditated in the presence of senior masters. Their energy level is high and energy flows from them towards those whose energy level is low. Once we understand the way and expect no master or master attendance. Then we can practice it anytime, anywhere, with our will. It also has no unpleasant side effects. We can also evaluate our progress by sharing our experiences with senior mediapersons. It is art, then the benefits on the old deliver to everyone.

This meditation is a great gift that can give your life to your own efforts. 'Spiritual health' is a very important and integral part of our total health, which every person needs. Anapasansati meditation meets this requirement. Thus, if 'spiritual health' is rooted then 'physical health' is its fruit. By meditation, one can understand the true reason behind his physical ailments.

According to the instructions of the participants, keep awake with breath, will become the center of awareness within you ... Then your body will become the universe.

The basic nature of human beings is happiness. We are born happy. As we grow, we receive millions of bits of information through sight, sound, smell, taste and touch and our basic state of happiness gradually changes to the state of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. We start searching happiness outside the world around us. We strive to achieve our goals and achieve material possessions of various things with a firm belief to get back our basic state of happiness with which we were born. This search is unending. We do get momentary happiness and pleasure which vanishes fast, and it goes on. In this pursuit, we lose health, peace of mind and live in a state of stress and anxiety continuously. If we have to live with dignity and abundance the above process is essential but we have to find some other real and definite way to achieve happiness along with it. Let us try to examine this in a simple logical way. The happiness is our basic nature. We have lost it due to stress, anxiety, and feeling of uncertainty of future, a fear of something unknown which may deprive me of what I have achieved with great struggle. A constant feeling of unknown fear, something may wrong. It is clear when fear, stress, anxiety goes high the happiness goes low and when fear, stress, anxiety gets low the happiness goes high. Now the big question is how do we lower fear, stress, and anxiety?  It seems difficult, it is not, and it is easy if we entrain our mind. Now the question arises how do we do that?  To find an answer we look back to ancient life style. Our enlightened Gurus used to Meditate. Meditation in simplicity is a training of the mind to calm down. It is simple, take out twenty minutes daily out of your busy schedule to Meditate.

  • Spirituality in essence is to know the self and relating to other selves!

  • Meditation helps one to stay spiritual.

  • Being in meditation can be achieved in all circumstances, even when roaming in a shopping mall.

  • Mind always craves for the stimulation of senses: Food and beverages, good sight, melodious sound, nice smell, good feeling of surroundings.

  • If not for any of the above, stimulation for the thought is high on agenda!

  • Stimulation of thought like to read, listen or watch intellectual/spiritual/literary works.

  • Can we get out of this harping for this or that sensation and just be for some time?

  • Shopping mall provides great opportunity for practicing ‘being in meditation’.

  • It has all the glitzy stuff displayed through the windows of shops, food courts, cinema hall, and variety of people streaming in and out of this place.

  • Now it is easy to be in meditation. Just be aware of all the things (sights,sounds, smell and feel of the place) and cut off any thoughts that arises on any or combination of those sensations around. And see what happens in your being.

  • This practice trains the mind to be quiet and be at our service only if called for!

Most people tend to believe that all types of meditations are the same. It is common to hear about the benefits of “meditation,” but most people don’t know that there are different benefits to be obtained based specifically on the type of meditation practice pursued. One person may practice Vipassana meditation a.k.a. “mindfulness” and reap numerous benefits, while another may practice Transcendental meditation and get an entirely different beneficial effect.

Focusing the attention on a single object during the whole meditation session. This object may be the breath, a mantra, visualisation, part of the body, external object, etc. As the practitioner advances, his ability to keep the flow of attention in the chosen object gets stronger, and distractions become less common and short-lived. Both the depth and steadiness of his attention are developed.

Examples of these are Samatha (Buddhist meditation), Loving Kindness Meditation, Chakra Meditation, Kundalini Meditation, Sound Meditation, Mantra Meditation, Pranayama, some forms of Qigong, and many others.
In some meditation Instead of focusing the attention on any one object, we keep it open, monitoring all aspects of our experience, without judgment or attachment. All perceptions, be them internal (thoughts, feelings, memory, etc.) or external (sound, smell, etc.), are recognised and seen for what they are. It is the process of non-reactive monitoring of the content of experience from moment to moment, without going into them. Examples are Mindfulness meditation, Vipassana, as well as some types of Taoist Meditation.

Meditation is rest, absolute rest, a full stop to all activity, physical, mental, emotional. When you are in such a deep rest that nothing stirs in you when all action as such ceases, as if you are fast asleep yet awake, you come to know who you are. Suddenly the window opens. It cannot be opened by effort because effort creates tension and tension is the cause of our whole misery. Hence this is something very fundamental to be understood that meditation is not effort.

Meditation is nothing but trying to clean your being, trying to become fresh and young, trying to become more alive and more alert. If you are afraid of meditation it means you are afraid of life, you are afraid of awareness, and the resistance comes because you know that if you move into meditation, something is bound to happen. If you are not resisting at all, it may be because you don't take meditation very seriously, you don't take meditation very sincerely. Then you can play around: what is there to be afraid of?

Meditation is a powerful solution for the overall wellness, and if practiced well it can nullify the need for medication. Medication may help in curing specific problem and condition whereas meditation not only helps in curing but also leads to strengthening overall wellness.

Meditation is neither an art nor a science or a skill set.  It is a “Way of Life”!

This powerful tool will take you through the journey of life and help you to be in total wellness. 

There are hundreds and thousands of studies which have proven that just 20 minutes of meditation a day will bring lot of benefits.

Then imagine the effects of being in meditation all the time!

Human Being is an amalgamation of Body, sensory perceptions, thoughts and emotions.

We can always access our body, sensory perceptions, thoughts and emotions. Understanding, learning and finally practicing continuously this aspect leads us to not just doing meditation but being in meditation all the time!

DON'T DO MEDITATION, BE IN MEDITATION!!!

Get Busy
 
When you recognize a negative thought, get busy. If you simply sit, you will keep thinking a lot.
 
Improve circulation in your body
 
If your head is filled with too many thoughts, lie down on the floor and keep rolling and you will see the circulation in the body improves. When circulation improves then the mind feels better. That is the reason they do shayana pradakshinam (a form of worship done by rolling on the floor). Experience it and see how there is a change in your mind.
 
Shake hands with negative thoughts
 
If you keep resisting negative thoughts, and try to push them away, then they will follow you like a ghost. Shake hands with your negative thoughts. Tell them, ‘Come here and sit with me. I will not leave you’, and you will see how they quickly disappear. Thoughts are scared of you.
 
If you get scared of negative thoughts then they will control you. But if you shake hands with them, then they will disappear.
 
Pranayama and Meditation
 
Pranayama and Meditation is the best way to apply brakes in the buzzing mind. It is very effective and instantly calms your mind down.
 
Intestinal Cleansing
 
if you are bombarded with too many negative thoughts, know that something must be wrong with your bowel movement. Do Shankh Prakshalan (intestinal cleansing). That would also help.
 
Move Around
 
Get up, do your exercise, sing, dance, do yoga, meditation, pranayama; all these will help.
 
Become a witness to your thoughts
 
You cannot stop a thought or know a thought before it comes. And when it comes, it also goes away immediately. If you are a witness to the thought, it simply drifts away and vanishes. But if you hold on to it and chew on it, then it stays with you.Thoughts come and go, but that which is the basis of thoughts – is the atma (soul). And that is what you are. You are like the sky, and thoughts are like clouds. This could be the nearest example one can give. Clouds come and go in the sky, but can they disturb or limit the vastness of the sky in any way? No, not at all.
 
So when you fly above the clouds, when you go beyond the clouds, you see that the sky is untouched. It is the same, it is unchanged. It is only the thoughts which keep moving. This is what happens in meditation. When you come into Sakshi bhaav, i.e., when you simply become a witness to the thoughts.
 
We do not have to attach ourselves to the thoughts. That is foolishness. Whether they are good thoughts, or bad thoughts – they come and go. You are far above and beyond all this. This is called the Vihangam Maarg – it means rising above thoughts and seeing that you have nothing to do with these moving thoughts.
