There is a widespread myth concerning meditation: that it involves stopping the mind or emptying the mind of all thought.
This is wrong as to try and empty the mind does not lead to any more restful state of thinking.
Even if the attempt to clear the mind or empty the mind were to be successful, you would only have stopped your surface thoughts and made the mind stagnant.
Also, on top of any mental activity, you would be adding the further activity of holding the mind still or emptying the mind – complex activity, not simple.
The process of Vedic Meditation does not use any such difficult or potentially dulling practices.
Vedic Meditation uses the free-flowing nature of a person’s mental attention in a completely natural way.
The process of Vedic Meditation does not interfere with nature, it simply allows your attention to spontaneously bring your body and mind to a state of restful alertness. Your body will then be completely at rest and your mind completely at rest. (Related page Expansion of consciousness)
Teachers of the vedic meditation technique are taught how to select appropriate mantra’s for people, so that once a person has been taught the technique, they will experience the benefits.
The technique is simple and natural, and you do not have to put effort in to stopping the mind, or trying to empty it of thought.
Vedic Meditation is the technique which enables a meditator to unfold the beauty of their own inner nature, and it’s a technique that can be learned by anyone.
