4 Different Meditation Methods That You Can Try Now

Meditation is the ancient practice that is used to alleviate general symptoms like stress, anxiety, depression, as well as reach a high level of awareness, or enlightenment. Meditation practice is prevalent in many cultures and countries, however, the Hinduism and Buddhism have been credited to the development of meditation that we know today. Since ages, the Hindus and the Buddhist have used meditation to end sorrow and suffering and find happiness in life.

If you are thinking about practicing meditation yourself and are confused about what type of meditation you should try, here is the brief description of 7 different meditation methods that you can try.

Mindfulness Meditation

Development of Mindfulness meditation is credited to a Buddhist monk and scholar Thich Nhat Hanh. The popular Mindfulness meditation was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, a disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh. However, the tradition of Mindfulness meditation was originally conceived by ancient Buddhism.

Mindfulness meditation is a meditation method where you constantly become aware of who you are, what you are by observing your thoughts and emotions but let these thoughts and emotions pass without any judgment. Even though some people recommend you to sit in a quiet place to perform Mindfulness meditation, you don’t actually have to sit in a quiet place to do mindfulness meditation. You can do mindfulness meditation at any time, even while doing your daily chores. All you have to do is not to concentrate on what’s going around you.

Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental meditation was founded by an Indian spiritualist Maharishi Mahesh Yogi during the 1950s. Now, it has grown into a strong movement with regional offices n many countries. Clinical trials have shown that Transcendental meditation is very effective in treating depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia, addiction, PTSD, and Autism. There are various case studies stating that Transcendental meditation is very good for deep inner calmness, clarity of mind and a healthy heart.

Transcendental meditation is taught by a certified Transcendental meditation teacher and it involves chanting of mantra (a word or phrase from Hindu or Buddhist scriptures) for 20 minutes twice a day. However, if you want to do Transcendental meditation you can choose a mantra and chant the mantra for 20 minutes in the morning and evening.

Guided Meditation

Guided meditation is a popular meditation technique where a guide or meditation teacher guides you to form mental pictures that you find soothing. In Guided Meditation, you train your mind to think about the visuals in your mind that are pleasing to you. Music and other visual aids are used in a guided meditation.

Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana Meditation was originally created by the ancient Hindus, however, the Buddha revived the tradition. After the death of the Buddha and his close disciples, Vipassana Meditation was lost for thousands of years and then was revived again by a Burmese Buddhist monk called Sayagyi U Ba Khin. The most common method of Vipassana Meditation is taught free of cost in a 10-day session in Nepal, India and elsewhere.

The 10-day course of Vipassana Meditation involves concentrating on breath for 3 days and the witnessing your inner impulse for 7 days. The idea is to self-transfer yourself through self-observation. You have to strictly follow the 5-Point Guide of Buddhism while doing Vipassana meditation.
