How to Meditate?

Before we see how to meditate, we would like to clarify one of the biggest myths about meditation. Clarifying this myth will truly help you understand how to meditate.


Most people are under the impression that meditation is concentration. We say meditation is not concentration; in-fact, meditation is the art of doing nothing.

Concentration is only a by-product of meditation

So, how do we learn this art of doing nothing?

How to Meditate?

There are many ways you can meditate but one of the easiest ways to meditate (especially when you are a beginner) is through a guided meditation. In a guided meditation, you need to sit with your eyes closed and follow the instructions you hear.

To be able to meditate on your own, you can learn meditation from a trained expert. You could join a Sahaj Samadhi Meditation Program.

To deepen your experience of meditation, you can keep the following three notions in mind whenever you sit to meditate.

1 - I want nothing – you’re putting aside all your desires, including that for a “good” meditation; you don’t want to know or plan anything
2 - I am doing nothing – lett go of all effort
3 - I am nothing – let go of all the labels you put on yourself about who you are.
