Why meditate? On what? And how? In his latest book Why Meditate?—an instant bestseller in the author’s native France—Matthieu Ricard aims to answer these very questions. As a molecular geneticist turned Buddhist monk, Ricard brings a wholly unique perspective to the practice of meditation. Often referred to as "the happiest man in the world," he advises us in the ways to imbue our lives with a true sense of serenity and fulfillment. In simple, clear language, Ricard walks readers through the theories and practicalities of meditation, demonstrating its many benefits in our modern world. He shows readers how to achieve emotional balance, enhance mindfulness, expand altruistic love, and develop a sense of inner calm; while also reducing anxiety, vulnerability to pain, and tendency toward depression and anger. This enlightening book conflates the spiritual with the scientific, the transcendent with the pragmatic, and the Western world with Eastern wisdom. No matter what point of view you approach it from—whether that of personal transformation or physical health—meditation emerges as a prominent part of leading a balanced life. In the accompanying 60-minute audio download, Ricard explores the concepts of freedom and self, expands on the benefits of meditation, and advises on the benefits of creating a regular meditative practice.

The truth of existence deals with realities that exist beyond human intellectual perception, and can only be accessed by inner, subjective experience. In the Silent Chamber of meditation are an in-house transmitter and receiver set to communicate with the ultimate reality, the creator of All. Man is capable of being attuned to the highest level only when a proper discipline is undergone. One of the great things about the inner science of meditation is you can delve into it and experiment within, alone. It does not depend on any outer authority, dogma, or ideology. Meditation is the methodology to discern the science of awareness and knowledge of the essence of your true being. You wield the sword on inner exploration on your own accord, and it can be your magic wand to consciously create circumstances you desire in your outer world. You come to know who you are, and your vast potential. Meditation has offered its proof through the ages.

Some people meditate because they want to attain to enlightenment but all most people really want is to reduce their stress levels and bring more confidence, love and happiness into their life. This book will give you a thorough grounding in how to meditate. You will learn how to witness; how to watch the breath; how to run an awareness continuum; how to silence the internal dialogue and enter no mind states. The information is carefully sequenced to make it easy for a beginner to grasp the concepts and also provides techniques to guide the experienced meditator in their exploration of consciousness. My intention in creating this publication has been to transform age old spiritual practises by drawing upon the more recent body of knowledge from the fields of hypnosis and NLP, to create new procedures, applications, aesthetics, insights and understandings. The reader is encouraged to use this publication to make their own personal discoveries, based upon existential experience rather than knowledge. Abby Eagle

Even those who have the gift of time soon find themselves stuck in the web of, what is mostly an artificial and synthetic dieting market, not realizing they would totally be at the mercy of the industry that's just out there for their money. In this deranged scene, a world wide revival was made by an art, practiced for over a thousands of years, 'meditation'. Shooting to fame in the 60s, meditation has been the subject of thousands of scientific studies, with the most heavy ones being taken after the 70s. What is meditation? When most people listen to the word meditation, the image of a Buddhist monk sitting in a weird position comes to mind. This, no doubt is the main idea behind meditation, is still not the extent of it. Before knowing what meditation is, you must know what it is not. Meditation is not: * Concentration: An attempt to hold one's attention on one specific idea or entity for a usually, long period of time. The techniques used in meditation are just a bit related to the word. * Losing Control: Voices, sounds, involuntary movements and spasms have no relation with meditation. These are just signs of loss of awareness, showing that one no longer controls some or most of his/her body. * Exercises: Physical positions, postures and heavy breathing are also not meditation. These practices can help establish a greater balance in your body, but only if practiced under the supervision of a master. Without a master's guidance, you'll just be hindering your body's to channel its energy in the right way. * Mental effort: For instance, if you keep on thinking about one thing you won't go anywhere with your practice. Meditation is a tool that helps you rediscover your own inner intelligence. It is keeping the mind quiet, finding the silence that already runs in our nerves and making it an active part of the life. From this increased sense of awareness, you attain intuition, inspiration and complete control and connection, down to the last nerve of the body. In effect you gain countless benefits, not just emotional or spiritual but physical too; you block out countless allergies, disorders and diseases that can or have ravaged through your body. Remember that there is no one way to meditate and in comparison one way is not better than the other as they all use the same principle at the core. In this book you'll learn all about the benefits of meditation, how it is done and how it provides relief by using only the body's own ability and not any medication. You will see that nature doesn't put a cost on health and well-being. So forget about your stress and take and relax, because your life is about to get a lot better!
