[QUOTE=b.shahvir;54411]Breathing exercises or pranayama aids meditation. Hence first breathing exercises then meditation gives excellent results. I recommend Anulom-Vilom and Kapalbhati pranayams. Both are extremely effective to stabilise the mind
You could start practicing it for just about 15 min every morning and within a month you will start experiencing the benefits. You could meditate using mind blanking technique. In this technique no thoughts are allowed to enter the mind. It is difficult at the beginning as mind wanders but can be perfected with regular practice.
[B]Do not practice mind blanking after mid-night! [/B]
Early morning is best time for yoga & meditation. Mind blanking causes sub-concious mind to open up and accepts positive vibes from the spiritual realms and the soul.
Hope this helps
Dude a cul.
I think you are a nice example of the “superstious indian.”
With your funny pills and no mind blanking after midnight.
I’m sure your got more nuggets up your sleeve. Lets hear em!

Intro to Meditation and Energy Control.
[B]Surf the Breath.[/B]
Take a comfortable position. Standing. Sitting. Walking. Lying down. etc…
The object is your breath. You follow it with your awareness as it travels. Your goal is to become absorbed and concentrated into it. You want to feel it move in and out. You want to feel it. Follow it. Surf it. Feel it. Get all involved in it.
The mind starts babbling away from the object - which is the breath - take the mind away from thinking - back to the object…
Do this for 10, 15, 30, 60, 90 minutes or however long is comfortable.
This will strengthen mental concentration, pacify the discursive mind, engender introversion of the senses, and other goodies . . .
Surfing the Breath is a gateway…
Surfs up DOOD.
