Meditation guideline for the beginners step by step:

  • Just find a quiet and relaxing place where no one can disturb you, sit on a mat so that you cannot have contact with the earth.
  • Make sure that your back remains straight; place your palms on your keens facing the sky.
  • Now close your eyes and take some long and deep breaths, after that slowly and slowly let the breath return to normal.
  • With your mind keep watching your breaths coming in and out, don't let go even a single breath without watching; just keep watching your breath inhale, and exhale.
  • Keep watching like a watchman, in between your mind will wander here and there sometimes your mind will start thinking about something else.
  • Whenever it happens focus your mind again on your breath, don't do anything else, and just consciously watch your breath come and go.
  • Watching the breath, slowly and slowly your breath will slow down. As the breath slows down and so will your mind calms down slowly and slowly, and gradually there will come a moment.
  • When your thoughts will completely disappear, your mind will drown in the ocean of peace. This is the state of deep meditation.
  • After getting advice from the monk, the thief started meditation as told by the monk, he stopped stealing and slowly and slowly his life changed.



You cannot master this method of meditation in a single day, for this, you have to practice for a long time. A little bit of regular practice every day. In the meditation process, you have to focus your attention on your breath inhaling and exhaling. Our breath is the rein of our mind, just as we control a horse with its rein, similarly, we can control our mind by controlling our breath.

When we start observing our breath come and go then our breath starts to slow down and as our breath slows down, our thoughts start to subside. After some time there will come a time when your mind will become completely silent and you will feel infinite peace. You can start feeling yourself separate from your mind and body.
