Simplest form of Meditation- 3 minutes in English and Hindi

Updated: Jun 4


I have encountered three types of reaction when I mention the word meditation:


1 “It’s not for me, I wonder how people do it, it’s so boring.”

2 “I really want to learn; I have done it in the past and left.”

3 “I practice regularly”

Obviously the three options are in descending order of occurrence.

There are a lot of myths which surround the practice of meditation; also there are a few informal meditation practices which are unknown to most people.

Let me lay done a few facts about meditation:-


1 It is not religious in nature

2 It can be learnt by anyone and it’s okay if you think you can’t sit still.

3 Meditation doesn’t mean clearing your mind of all thoughts.

4 You don’t have to create an ambiance for meditation or sit in a particular posture.

5 Meditation is for everyone not just people who are stressed.

6 Children as young as 5 years of age can be taught to meditate.

7 There is no such things as perfect meditation, it is a practice

8 It doesn’t mean you’re running away from problems

9 It is different from relaxation, hypnosis or concentration.

10 There is no goal, it’s only the experience in that moment

You don’t have to sit in a particular posture or chant anything. It takes about 3-4 minutes and can be done anywhere.

This is the simplest form. Plug in your ear phones for some guided meditation.
