Re: Meditation help

Most of the people aren't raised to sit and say "Om." But meditation has gained millions of converts, helping them ease chronic pain, anxiety, stress, improve heart health, boost mood and immunity, and resolve pregnancy problems.
Any condition that's caused or worsened by stress can be alleviated through meditation.

There's stress in thinking you should be practicing a form of meditation and not having the private space, or enough time for it.

Meditation is especially ideal to alleviate that particular form of stress

The Parable of the Burning House


One day, a fire broke out in the house of a wealthy man who had many children. The wealthy man shouted at his children inside the burning house to flee. But, the children were absorbed in their games and did not heed his warning, though the house was being consumed by flames.

Then, the wealthy man devised a practical way to lure the children from the burning house. Knowing that the children were fond of interesting playthings, he called out to them, "Listen! Outside the gate are the carts that you have always wanted: carts pulled by goats, carts pulled by deer, and carts pulled by oxen. Why don't you come out and play with them?" The wealthy man knew that these things would be irresistible to his children.

The children, eager to play with these new toys rushed out of the house but, instead of the carts that he had promised, the father gave them a cart much better than any he has described - a cart draped with precious stones and pulled by white ********. The important thing being that the children were saved from the dangers of the house on fire.

In this parable the father, of course, is the Buddha and sentient beings are the children trapped in the burning house. The Burning House represents the world burning with the fires of old age, sickness and death. The teachings of the Buddha are like the father getting the boys to leave their pleasures for a greater pleasure, Nirvana.

Nothing to be grasped

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/6b8dp

When a rainbow appears vividly in the sky
you can see its beautiful colors
yet you could not wear it as clothing, or put it on as an ornament.
It arises through the conjunction of various factors
but there is nothing about it that can be grasped.
Likewise, thoughts that arise in the mind have no tangible existence or intrinsic solidity.
There is no logical reason why thoughts, which have no substance
should have so much power over you
nor is there any reason why you should become their slave.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
from the book "The Heart of Compassion
The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva"
ISBN: 978-1590304570

Re: Meditation help

As the Dharma takes birth in your mindstream
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
http://justdharma.com/s/n4c5t
The teachings of the Dharma have great power
but unless you practice them properly that power will remain merely as a potential
which is never expressed.
If one has a tool and does not use it, not much will be accomplished.
An unused tool is not particularly beneficial in itself.
But if you truly put the teachings into practice
as the Dharma takes birth in and grows in your mindstream
all your faults will naturally diminish and all your positive qualities will spontaneously blossom
just as the sun, as it rises higher in the morning
gradually spreads increasing light throughout the world.
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
from the book "The Heart of Compassion:
The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva"
ISBN: 978-1590304570

translated by Padmakara Translation Group

Re: Meditation help

Is there difference between a meditation listening on frequency 432hz or 528hz sound?
And which time is best for you? I think in my case I'm having more ease before go sleep

Re: Meditation help

Quote from His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"Human beings are social animals.
What brings us together is love and affection
anger drives us apart.
Just as we employ physical hygiene to protect our health
we need emotional hygiene, the means to tackle our destructive emotions
if we are to achieve peace of mind."

Re: Meditation help

In Buddhism, meditation is not only for relaxing the mind
Karmapa stressed that,
"In general, meditation is for taming the mind, getting know our-self better
in order to change our behavior.
So, meditation can be regarded
as a tool in changing our motivation and behavior."
