When you look at the eastern gurus - the masters of meditation - you might wonder how they do it. What are their techniques? What methods do they covet? What do we need to do to achieve the bliss and spiritual awareness that they have attained? How?
It's easy to assume that the most advanced meditators have access to some special information or unique training, and in some cases this may be true. However, it is not their meditation technique that we should be concerned with.
Advanced Eastern meditators are often brought up in a culture where the practice of meditation is a normal part of everyday life, and where it is practiced from a very early age.
More often than not, what is significant about their meditation is not the technique they use, but the time and dedication they have applied to mastering their art. They live in a culture in which spiritual practices such as meditation hold a more elevated societal status than they do in the west. It’s how they live their lives, not how they meditate that we need to acknowledge.
With that in mind, I encourage you to take a look at this article on deep meditation. in which I discuss why technique is less important than many other factors when it come to meditation.
There are plenty of ways to meditate, but I'd prefer not to get too caught up in the many meditation techniques that are available, or in debate over which way is best.
