  3. 3. WHAT IS MEDITATION? Mind is often a helpless victim of various types of turbulence like anger, grief, sensuality, revenge and remorse and this condition is prone to harm one’s own self or others. With mediation one learns the art of single- pointed concentration, which elevates the level of efficiency in any assignment and opens the right avenue for success.

  6. 6. HISTORY Some of the earliest references to meditation are found in the Hindu Vedas. History of meditation is intimately bound up with the religious context within which it was practiced. Secular forms of meditation were introduced in India in the 1950s as a Westernized form of Hindu meditative techniques and arrived in the United States and Europe in the 1960s. Rather than focusing on spiritual growth, secular meditation emphasizes stress reduction, relaxation and self-improvement.
  7. 7. When to meditate : Morning time is the best for meditation, at the time of sun rise other it can be performed at any time and at any place while sitting in a office, moving in a bus, studying in a chamber, Have deep breaths at least for 3 times before sitting for meditation.
  8. 8. Sit in a comfortable position. *Classic posture is cross-legged on floor (sukhasana) *Straighten your spine. Breathe deeply through your nose. Inhale to full up lungs and then exhale slowly to expel all the air, observing breath all the time.
  9. 9. Most of the ancient religions of the world have a tradition of using some type of prayer beads as tools in devotional meditation.Most prayer beads consist of pearls or beads linked together by a thread.The Roman Catholic rosary is a string of beads containing five sets with ten small beads. Each set of ten is separated by another bead. The Hindu japa mala has 108 beads (the figure 108 in itself having spiritual significance, as well as those used in Jainism and Buddhist prayer beads.Each bead is counted once as a person recites a mantra until the person has gone all the way around the mala.The Muslim mishbaha has 99 beads. Specific meditations of each religion may be different. PRAYER BEADS
