None would be able to describe and explain it in few sentences. It’s experience may be different to different persons. Though it is a 24 x 7 practice, but? to develop awareness of desired level, formal practice of moral values, concentration and vipasana is very much useful.
Meditation is a vast subject.
The mediator must refrain from committing immoral actions such as theft, violence, falsehood, intoxication and extra marital relationship etc.
For developing concentration he must observe either the inhalation and exhalation of breaths or feel the sound of silence, in any of the body postures IE., sitting, standing, walking and lying down, for some time every day.
Breath may be either coarse or subtle. He shall focus on the breath only, while meditating, and shall put every thing else such as vision, sound, smell, touch, taste, mental feelings etc., down, which may come into contact or arise during the course of meditation.
For the practice of vipasana it is better to attend? retreat at least once. In vipasana practice the mediator will learn to observe the arising and cessation of body sensation by swiping from head to toe and back from toe to head.
While doing so he ought to have observe arising and passing away of various thoughts, as the way they are, without any judgement, whatsoever, whether good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant. The emphasis must be on learning of the technique of let go of the clinging to the mental feelings. Grasping to any kind of thoughts shall be avoided, by keeping in mind that these are:-
1. Impermanent in nature.
2. Will cause of suffering.
3. The self is no where involved.
The thoughts shall be welcomed as guests, who come to visit us and return back to their place.
By having the knowledge of the true nature of all these fenomena the mediator would certainly be able to develop the desired awareness in order to attain the ever lasting peace.
