Types of Meditation
1: Concentrative Meditation Technique
Quite often our mind tends to wonder and scatter. Thousands of thoughts run around our heads just like a bunch of crazy monkeys. One of the ways a meditation can be used to calm the mind is to focus the awareness and concentrate on that single point of focus.
Learning to bring the stream of attention to a flame, breath, sound (mantra) or image helps the mind to develop the capacity to remain calm and grounded. The most popular type of concentrative meditation technique in the West is Transcendental Meditation founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
