Yoga texts state that there are various stages an aspirant has to go through to get ready for meditation. From ethics to physical postures to breath control and relaxation, comes concentration and meditation. Meditation techniques performed sitting in quiet surroundings aim at making the mind one pointed, in order to be able to achieve a meditative state in everyday situation, while working, eating, etc.

Meditation is awareness. When we practice activities without distractions of the mind, that is called awareness; anything done with awareness is meditation. Meditation is a way of life; it means stopping the thought process, allowing the mind to be free. Apart from being a spiritual practice, meditation has many physical benefits, such as:

  • Slowing respiratory and heart rate
  • Reducing blood pressure
  • Reducing muscle tension
  • Decreasing oxygen consumption
  • Reducing stress, anxiety, insomnia
  • Increasing concentration
  • Promoting relaxation
