Secrets To Meditation
Tibetan Buddhist Tingshas : buddhist meditation
Published on August 15, 2013 – 2:10 am

Tingshas are produced from many areas of southern Asia, including Nepal and India. Most are crafted, of course, by Tibetan refugees. Each cymbal is one of a kind, and tuned by hand to specific musical notes. The two cymbals are purposefully tuned to a slightly different pitch, in order to produce a poignant and evocative ring that will embellish the practice for which it is used. There are hundreds of different kinds or styles of meditation. The important thing is to pick one and stick with it. Meditation is not a difficult process, it is simply quieting the mind by focusing on an object, sound or word. Gradually the thoughts will diminish and you will come to a state of complete inner silence.

By doing this sort of meditating throughout your day while you walk or do various tasks, you will have added a meditation practice to your life with ease. Meditation does not have to be about sitting down and being silent for hours at a time and for many, mistakenly trying to reach a goal of some sort. The most beautiful thing about the outcome is that all needed solutions and ideas will come on their own, some straight away, some later. What you are gaining above everything else is your connection with the Universe and Its promise to serve you; all you have to do is to surrender to Its power, calm your hectic mind and start trusting which is only natural to achieve in meditating state.

As a mother and yoga teacher, I come into contact with people from all faiths, religions and cultural social groups. I am learning to accept people where they are and to allow them to express their faith and religious practices in peace. However, I notice that when the topic of meditation comes up, many of my friends who are Christians, shy away from this topic and claim they do not meditate as they believe it is wrong and against their religion.

Simply stop seeking. Go somewhere quiet, turn off the phone, close your browser window and be still. The best way to start is to simply concentrate on your breathe….the simple, subtle and sweet swell of breathe coming in and out of your body.

Sit in a comfortable position with the spine straight, but not rigid. You can sit on a chair, your bed or the floor. The important thing is to sit in a upright posture that you will be able to maintain for a period of about 20 minutes. You never want to lay down as it will be to easy to fall asleep. Once you are in a comfortable position, resist the urge to move around, scratch itches and the like. This will take a little practice and become very natural in time.
