[QUOTE=yarnspinner6;61786]Thank you both. I will check them out.[/QUOTE]
Any meditation aids would mean processing those inputs mentally, impressions of which could impair true meditation.
Instead, you could try these simple steps known as the [B]Introductory Practice of Mahayoga[/B], by which the mind is engaged in our higher aspect known as [I][B]Prana-Shakti[/B][/I] or the divine life-current keeping us alive.
Our breathing, which happens automatically is due to the grace of this [I][B]Prana-Shakti.[/B][/I] The body becomes useless the moment this [I][B]Prana-Shakti[/B][/I] or the divine life current leaves the body.
[I][B]Prana-Shakti[/B][/I] is the higher [B]and[/B] divine aspect within us. Hence for meditation to happen, the mind should just devotedly follow movement of Divine [I][B]Prana-Shakti[/B][/I] i.e. the movement of Air, automatically entering or leaving the body.
The steps are as under:
[li]Sit in any comfortable position.
[li][B]Calmly[/B] close the eyes and [B]relax[/B] the body to the maximum possible.
[li][B]Allow[/B] automatic breathing to take place. The movement of Air automatically entering or leaving the body is of course the movement of divine [I][B]Prana-Shakti.[/B][/I] For three minutes or more, simply [B]let[/B] the mind follow [B]Mother Air[/B] entering and leaving the body.
[li][B]Do not[/B] impose any kind of breathing. In fact, also[B] allow any other involuntary movements or sensations to take place.[/B]
Regular practice will lead to experience of inner peace and meditation will happen. You need not [B]“do”[/B] it.
