How to meditate according to Bhagavad Gita

Meditation helps you elevate yourself by yourself. With meditation practices properly, you can have control over the mind. Having a controlled mind, you live tranquil in heat and cold, in pleasure and pain, honor and dishonor.

Meditation enhances your knowledge, a better understanding of the self, poise, and control over the senses. You also become impartial towards your companions, friends, enemies, arbitrators, haters, relatives, friends, saints, and sinners.

The meditation should be performed sitting on a firm surface, neither too high nor too low, covered with grass mat or cloth mat and the place must be clean.

Sitting firmly, you should focus your mind on a single object like sensation in your nostril. Whenever your mind starts wandering, please bring it back to the object you are focusing on.

Hold your waist, spine, chest, neck, and head firmly erect, motionless, and steady. Fix the eyes and the mind steady on the point between the eyebrows, and don’t move your eyes.

To achieve the maximum result from the meditation, one should not overeat or sleep too much.

After a while, practicing meditation regularly, you will attain tranquillity of mind. Your mind will be fully absorbed in the self. Your journey to supreme bliss would begin when your mind is tranquil, your desires are under control, and you feel free from sin.
