You do or you do not. There is no try- Yoda
But there is a majority of people for whom meditation is just a modern Mumbo-Jumbo based on eastern spirituality made popular by self-help gurus all over the world.
There are many who literally scoff and raise their eyebrows when someone mentions meditation and assume that sitting in a cross-legged position trying to empty one’s mind is futile, in fact, impossible.
May be they had tried doing so in past but could not see what the fuss is all about. Or they may just think the idea is plain absurd-
“Sitting while doing nothing when the rest of the world rushes past me? Have you gone nuts? “
You may belong to any of the above categories. But I believe if you are reading this page, there may be a part inside you which is just curious- what actually is meditation?
How does it help in bringing mental peace in a world where being stressed out is considered normal, even a status symbol? Are those medical and scientific research reports with numerous benefits of meditation true?
If yes, do I need to sport a beard or go to a guru/baba to practice meditation? What can I expect when I start a regular practice of meditation?
And most importantly, where do I start? I want to practice it but without any religious tone or nonsense mumbo-jumbo. What should I do? How do I incorporate the practice in my busy schedule?
