Meditating Buddha
Meditation is a state of relaxation and introspection and an easy way to relax and rejuvenate your body. There are numerous physical benefits one can gain from meditation. It can lower your blood pressure, lower your heart rate, help you sleep, and can reduce stress and stress related problems.

Meditation can also serve as a training tool to cleanse the mind. Buddhists use meditation to replace negative qualities in the mind with positive ones. Ideally, the mind is cleansed of impurities such as desire, jealousy, anger, and hatred, and they are replaced with love, compassion, happiness and kindness.

Physically, meditation is very similar to
self-hypnosis, but in meditation the goal is to simply relax and become aware of yourself. Both methods begin with breathing techniques, quieting the mind, relaxing the body and becoming aware of the present. The largest difference between the two is that in meditation you concentrate only on the present, and you simply let things happen without attempting to alter them. Self-hypnosis is used more as a tool to change and reorganize your inner self.

Meditation Steps:

1. Find a quiet and peaceful location.
2. Prepare the area (meditation music, mats, candles, whatever helps you relax).
3. Sit in your chosen spot (floor, chair, wherever you are most comfortable),
keeping your back straightened.
4. Close your eyes and begin breathing exercises. Take a deep breath, allowing the air to expand your stomach, and then slowly exhale. Concentrate on this rhythm.
5. Clear your mind of all thoughts, then slowly let them enter. Contemplate
each thought one at a time.
