THE BIG BUDDHA Meditation Techniques, Benefits.
Mindfulness Meditation Techniques
At the core of the mindfulness meditation practice is the development of our skills of observation—concentration and mindfulness. To do so, we must structure our meditation around them. Here are some basic guidelines for a typical mindfulness meditation session:
Sitting Position – Sit in a comfortable chair without armrests; back straight, and feet flat on the floor. Keep your hands either cupped one inside the other just below the navel, or simply rest them on your thighs. The main purpose of our sitting position is to be comfortable and alert. Do not lie down, as you’ll probably fall asleep.
Concentration – Use the counting technique to help you develop your concentration. During your meditation, count your breaths 1 through 5 silently in your mind. When you get to 5, simply start over again. Keep your attention focused on the air passing through the tip of your nose. When you find that your mind has wandered, bring your attention back to your breath immediately. Concentration meditation will help you develop mental discipline.
Mindfulness – After a few minutes of concentration meditation, switch to mindfulness meditation. Continue observing your breath. However, this time instead of counting each one, simply observe the entire breathing process mindfully. This means that you are relaxed, and not forcing yourself to do anything. When distracting thoughts arise, gently bring your attention back to the breath.
Emotional awareness meditation – An alternative to the mindful meditation portion of your meditation session is emotional awareness meditation. As the name implies, you’re training yourself to observe your emotions. Over time, this type of meditation will help you gain more control over your emotions, and develop greater inner strength.
To practice emotional awareness meditation, do the relaxation and concentration meditations first. When you finish the concentration meditation, turn your attention to your emotions. Ask yourself, “What am I feeling?” Are you feeling happy, sad, angry, lonely, hurt, restless, bored, or some other emotion?
Some emotions arising from your subconscious mind may be quite subtle, and harder to identify. They tend to manifest themselves into a general mood without seemingly any rhyme or reason.
Emotional awareness meditation can be more involved than this, but for now, simply focus on identifying the emotions. If you feel ready, you are welcome to explore those emotions deeper. Look at the thinking behind them, and try to look at the situations differently, that is, from a broader perspective.
Metta is a Pali word that means kindness, benevolence, and good will. This practice comes from the Buddhist traditions, especially the Theravada and Tibetan lineages. “Compassion meditation” is a contemporary scientific field that demonstrates the efficacy of metta and related meditative practices.
Vipassanā or vipaśyanā literally, “special-seeing”, “special, seeing”, sometimes translated as “insight”, is one of two qualities of mind which is developed in Buddhist meditation, the other being samatha.
Zazen is a very sober meditation style, and you can easily find a lot of strong communities practicing it, as well as plenty of information on the internet. There is a lot of emphasis in keeping the right posture, as an aid for concentration. It is usually practiced in Zen Buddhist centers (Sangha), with strong community support.

Benefits of Mediation
- Greater Control. Mediation increases the control the parties have over the resolution. Each party are directly involved in negotiating their own agreement and no settlement can be imposed upon you. In comparison, dissatisfaction is often experienced in court where parties have little choice but to accept the judgement made, which they may not be happy with.
- Its confidential. Unlike the potential publicity of court proceedings, everything said at the mediation is entirely confidential to the parties (unless specifically agreed otherwise).
- Its voluntary. Any party may withdraw at any time.
- Convenience. The mediation is arranged at a venue convenient to the parties, who each have their own room as well as a separate room for joint meetings. The Mediator listens to everyone’s view, talks to the parties privately and together, guiding them towards a settlement.
- Reduced Costs. Generally the cost is greatly reduced in comparison with trying to settle the matter through court. Traditional litigation is very expensive and the total cost is highly unpredictable.
- Faster outcome. Because mediation can be used early in a dispute, an agreement can usually be reached quicker than if pursuing through the courts.
- Support. Mediators are trained in working with difficult situations. The mediator acts as a neutral facilitator and supports each party through the process.
- Preservation of Relationships. Whether is may be a business or family dispute, preservation of relationships can be a key benefit of mediation. Mediation helps participants focus on effectively communicating with each other as opposed to attacking each other.
