How the Vedic Meditation technique Works

Learning the Vedic Meditation technique is really quite simple – anyone can do it successfully

How the Vedic Meditation technique WorksOkay, I am going to attempt to explain ‘How the Vedic Meditation technique Works’. You will see below why I have said attempt to explain.

When I first looked into meditation in the 1980’s there were only a couple of listings in the phone book. In the 90’s the yellow pages had about two and a half pages of listing.

These days the internet has all but replaced phone directories, and just as well because there are hundreds if not thousands of techniques, teachers and courses on offer.

If you are just starting to look into meditation the choice must be very confusing. Where do you start?

Well, I am not going to get into ‘Other techniques’ on this page, other than a very brief overview. Furthermore, I am not going to get into explaining what Vedic Meditation is, and what it is not. That’s covered here; What is Vedic Meditation

Therefore, this should help you when you are comparing meditation techniques.

A Brief Comparison of Other Meditation Techniques

To start with, you might find that all most all meditation techniques make the same claims that you feel calmer and more alert – your thinking is clearer and more dynamic, and you have more energy. And I am not saying that these claims are not true. However, to some extent, just sitting quietly with your eyes closed can also generate the same result.

In my experience, the difference between meditation techniques is the depth of rest, the level of calmness and increased awareness. These benefits then translate into one’s day as more energy, greater clarity of mind and a better night sleep – which in turn gets you off to a better start the next day.

I honestly cannot tell you how many different meditation techniques I tried out when I began this journey. Suffice to say there were lots. However, at a guess, I’d say about 12.

What I can tell you though is that I stopped looking when I discovered Vedic Meditation. To transcend one’s thoughts for the first time, when this is what you had been told you were doing in other techniques, is literally eye-opening.

To transcend your thinking process – your thoughts – and still be aware of what is happening around you is something that you just cannot put into words. You have to experience it, you have to feel it, to understand it.

In conclusion, the depth meditation is much deeper in Vedic Meditation than anything I have experienced. In addition, this same experience gets reported back to me from the people I teach to mediate. Especially, from the many who, like me had tried other techniques first.

Of course, the wonder of it all is not how the Vedic Meditation technique works, but that it works.

And work it does!

How the Vedic Meditation technique Works

The technique works by using the natural tendency of the mind.

What you might ask, IS the natural tendency of the mind?

Simply stated, the natural tendency of the mind is to go to greater and greater fields of happiness. We see this tendency of the mind in our lives every day. This tendency to seek and settle upon that which is most enjoyable can be observed in our planning. We make plans and decisions that will bring, either immediately or eventually, greatest pleasure.

What the Vedic Meditation technique does, then, is to momentarily halt this outgoing barrage of thoughts, and allow the mind to choose in which direction it wants to go.

The mind, naturally going in the direction of greater and greater happiness, chooses to go within, to experience first-hand the source of all relative creation.

Of course, the wonder of it all is not how the Vedic Meditation technique works, but that it works. And work it does!

The exact procedure of how Vedic Meditation works is covered at the Introductory session, where it can be discussed in context of How Vedic Meditation is taught, Why it is taught that way, the prerequisites to learning, What a person does on the day of instruction and in doing so we also discuss the origins of the Vedic Meditation program.
