Mark: Chanting is a good method to keep your mind focused. But dont forget the point of medition is to still your mind. Dont hide your thoughts. Let them come, let them go. Over time you will be able control them.
Pradeep: but I have been told by most of the people that "close your eyes and observe breathe" only
Divya: Yes, the former method is correct. Remain silent and observe you breathe.
Victoria: There are a lot of ways for meditation, even dinamic meditation, it´s not only remain in silence; that´s only one way to our insight. Looking to something and then repeat the image in your mind is an example of many. Namastê.
Mine: Remain in silence and breath...
Kapil: Listen to urself, try to find ur inner-being. remove thoughts which come to mind during meditation. stay calm & steady. if u are loosing concentration after chanting mantra then dont chant it, stay silent, mantra is for concentration. be urself. u will get self realization soon. om shanti !!!
Malini: Breath observation always works they say, popular belief, but it totally depends on the individual, something may work for me and not work for you, so, one has to find their own thing.. Music always works for me, just a single 'sa' alaap su...ng by either me or a cd could take me into deep meditation.. for me singing is deep meditation, and i should do it more often, i just realised :D try it if u want to, put on an OM cd if u want to or just the divine - flute..See More
Pradeep: thanks all for valuable advice
