There are numerous meditation techniques and practices.
People meditate to achieve different results. Some meditate to distress, to heal sickness and relief pain, to clear their minds, to find peace and for all other problems we face on a daily basis in our life. There is no right or wrong meditation practice. Meditation is food for the soul and any food is better than no food. But as we know, some foods are better than others. The same applies to meditation, some meditation practices are better than others. So which meditation technique is better than the others?
The best way to answer this question is to go back to the beginning, to the time when meditation started and discover the reasons why mankind started to meditate. Meditation started when man were searching for answers to the meaning of life and the purpose of our existence. They discovered that by clearing your mind and delving into the hidden parts of your mind, you will find the answer to the most important question of Why? The answer to all our questions are revealed to us by allowing our minds to go into a deep meditative state, to clear our mind from our daily desires and problems and opening it to receive guidance from our inner self.
By practicing the original and authentic way of meditation, we will receive clarity and insight into what our purpose is, what the reason is to our existence. By knowing what your purpose in life is and making your purpose the primary objective of your life, your soul will be filled with love, peace and happiness, you will feel complete again. You will be living the life you were meant to live and not just making a living and when your mind is set on your purpose, all unhappiness, depression and anxiety will seem irrelevant.
You won’t be consumed by your own self and all your problems and worries, but you will regain your zest for life. By living your purpose and not surrendering to society’s expectations, you’ll become your authentic self and true happiness can only be obtained when we live a life true to ourselves. And when our lives are filled with happiness, all pain, anxieties and worries will disappear.
Uddeśa Meditation (Sanskrit meaning: The goal of my life ) is the forgotten meditation technique, as each religion changed the aim of meditation to serve their own beliefs and goals. Uddeśa Meditation is the original way of meditation and besides receiving the answer to what your purpose is, you’ll receive all the benefits of all other meditation techniques, because all meditation practices have the same origin, the way meditation was practiced right in the beginning. So with Uddeśa Meditation you’ll reap all the rewards of all the different meditation techniques plus you’ll discover what life you’re supposed to live, a life filled with purpose and happiness.
