Understanding the Meditation Techniques
The Meditation – calming of the mind until reaching a complete focus or concentration – is practiced by many people for centuries. We can achieve feeling that is familiar to meditation if we focus, for example to music or problem solving. The difference between previously mentioned state of mind and meditation is in the depth of the focus. During the meditation the focus is total, therefore your mind and object of your meditation become one. Practicing the Meditation techniques is the beginning of spiritual growth.
Meditation Techniques With or Without an Object
Broadly speaking, there are two types of meditation techniques: Concrete Meditation ( also known as Meditation on Object ) and Abstract Meditation ( Meditation without an Object ). First type of meditation technique takes an object, picture, sound, or symbol. Meditator use an Object as mean to achieve greater concentration. It is generally assumed that this type of meditation technique is easier than meditation without an object, since mind is in position to "catch" something concretely, like light of a candle.
During meditation without an object, there is no outside focus. This type of meditation technique has a purpose of focusing on inner self or abstract idea, instead on object. It is useful to try both meditation techniques, in order to identify which style fits better to you.
