In the event that we wish, we can sit in a seat. The most essential thing is to keep our back directly to keep our mind from getting to be sluggish or lethargic.
We sit with our eyes somewhat shut and direct our concentration toward our breathing. We breathe normally, ideally through the nostrils, without endeavoring to control our breath, and we attempt to wind up mindful of the impression of the breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. This sensation is our object of meditation. We should attempt to focus on it to the avoidance of everything else.
At first, our mind will be exceptionally occupied, and we may even feel that the meditation is making our mind busier; however truly we are simply winding up increasingly mindful of how bustling our mind really is. There will be an incredible compulsion to pursue the diverse contemplations as they emerge, however we should oppose this and stay concentrated single-distinctly on the impression of the breath. In the event that we find that our mind has meandered and is following our considerations, we ought to quickly return it to the breath. We should rehash this the same number of times as essential until the mind settles on the breath.
