Meditation concepts in religions
Mediation in one or another form exists in each and every religion since each religion or spiritual living aims at providing one the eternal happiness. From time immoral, it was believed that the Hindu religious ceremonies encouraged the practice of Meditation and Yoga and further, it carries its existence in Buddhism, Jainism, Islam, Christianity etc.
The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means “to control”, “to unite”, which combines the techniques and disciplines of asceticism and meditation. It suggests that the practice of Yoga/Meditation would help one to transcend the ego within and achieve the liberation of mind and soul.
“Meditation” is based purely at one’s breath; the vital force of energy behind one’s existence. Our body acts as a bag for the air to get filled in and in the process; it gives us the energy/life to respond to the nature, to other fellow beings and to ourselves.
Two most general technique of Mediation involves the breath; the “Concentrative Meditation Technique” insists one to concentrate on his/her breathing and to a single object or sound from the nature and to encourage the mind to the same fully. Slowly, one would identify that their mind is glowing with an eternal peacefulness and the body is relaxed providing the necessary healing touch to one’s life.
In Mindfulness technique one has to pay attention and focus to all the sensations and feelings but to be within themselves. During the process, the person will be conscious of their thought patterns and will analyze them the most objectively without allowing them to be caught up in the process themselves. One will slowly identify that they are freed from their emotional state of mind and their body is getting a gentle massage of cool water/wind; which is the ultimate state of joy we aim for.
