[QUOTE=makar;56395]? For some reason when I meditate,it seems breathing doesn’t happen automatically for me? I have to consciously inhale and exhale.What should I do to free my mind from breathing and that I remain unconscious of my breathing like it is during other activities throughout the day??
Is it that the meditation done for Kundalini is different from normal meditation? Or the meditation is same for whatever purpose it is done?
Is meditation only the stillness/clearance of the mind during meditation? Or it has something more to it? I don’t mean the benefits of meditation but with what goes on during meditation.
How do you still your mind? You might be following a certain approach/technique for this? When I clear my mind of any thoughts,I still think that ok I have cleared my mind now.How do I deal with this? There should be nothing going on in my mind during meditation,right? How do you do this?[/QUOTE]
Breathing is the movement of Prana, the divine [B]living[/B] force which drives the body and the mind. Hence it is the superior aspect.
Thus in Mahayoga, during meditation, one simply and totally surrenders to the automatic breathing, i.e. to Prana. One [B]lets[/B] Prana Shakti start or stop the breathing.
In fact, if your breathing stops, it would mean that Prana has become still and so has the mind. Now, if the mind is functionless, it means ego is also functionless.
During sittings, let Prana~Shakti do what she wants. So do not try to impose any breathing. Mahayoga says, during sadhan, [B]allow[/B] all involuntary movements to take place. These are the ego-less actions known as [I][B]Mahayoga-kriyas.[/B][/I]
Even terminating a mahayoga meditation session is left to the [B]grace of [I]Prana~Shakti[/I].[/B]
So it seems, you are on to something good.
