Our busy life generates stress and anxiety time and again; as a result our unhealthy and impatience mind lost its control, functions erratically. Had you learn how to meditate in any corner of your life? If you had and if you have been honest in practice and patience both, you will be one of the greatest minds of the world. You have to just wait and trust. Today I am experiencing the results of seeds that I had sown some years ago. There are mainly three types of meditations worth to mention here according to our Buddhist philosophy.
1. Tranquility meditation:
The fundamental objective of tranquility meditation is to calm down the mind, remove all anxiety and timidity and increase concentration. Skill of this type of meditation is useful for achieving following four ideal stages.
2. Insight Meditation:
The purpose of this type of meditation is the realization of truth, specially the truths of impermanence, suffering and "no-self." This type of meditation is superior to the former one as it liberates us from the false confirmation of this cosmic world and its synthetic beauty. This is primarily practiced by Buddhist followers but anyone can learn this regardless of any creed or religious faith. This insight meditation focuses on the concept of mindfulness. Here, mindfulness is not meant to concentration. Concentration means giving your total focus at a single object or matter without any deviation. On the other hand, mindfulness is to think about it and comprehend its entire concept. This means not only to touch things or observe matter of concern, but also to attempt to learn about it with your focused and creative mentality.
3. Loving meditation:
Love, affection and kindness are central virtue of mankind. A man's identity as a divine creature relies on these parameters. And meditation also needs these pleasant virtues because these are complementary to all types of meditation. The need of loving meditation is to develop the mental habit of true love for the self and others. It is said to ‘bliss of life'. In loving meditation, love is radiated not only towards nears and dears but also for neutral person and even for your enemy. Paradoxically, love is only one winning weapon to fight against our enemy. And this is utilized here.
