Meditation I am teaching
In the beginner meditation you would be taught the very first two steps necessary for an effective use of it:
- withdrawal of senses - pratyahara;
- stabilization of the mind at one point - dharana.
For those ends, an object to focus the mind on is necessary, and that here is a mantra, or a specific, rhythmic phrase in the Sanskrit language with a lofty meaning.
All of the above listed benefits of meditation can be noticed very quickly. The most important is to really include meditation in a daily routine; and to be both dedicated to it, as well as sincere to yourself.
As a result of the two techniques explained above - pratyahara and dharana - dhyana unfolds, which is meditation in the real sense of the term. Dhyana is an effortless flow of mind towards one object of ideation, leading one to a realization of the unity of all existence.
