    • One simple Method of Getting started in Meditation
      • Sit comfortably
      • Concentrate on your breath
      • Observe the feeling
      • When thoughts drift, return to your breath
      • Observe thoughts, acknowledge them
      • Use breath as an anchor
      • Experience the calmness
    • PRACTICAL HINTS ON MEDITATION 1. Practice : You must practice at least twice everyday and the best times are towards the morning and the evening. The early morning and the early evening are the two periods of calmness. Your body will have a like tendency to become calm at those times. 2. Purity ~ Physical and Mental. All Uncleanness, all that would draw the mind down, must be abandoned. 3. Patience : At first, there will be wonderful manifestations, but they will all cease. Wait, and continue the practice. 4. Perseverance. Never miss a day in practice.
