This eBook outlines the distilled essence of meditation practice. It is based on a broad study of the many meditation traditions that have grown up over time in different parts of the world.
Once you know the essential basics, you can adapt the technique to suit your needs. Meditation is something that can be learned in a few minutes, but which can take a lifetime to perfect. The greater the truth, the more simply it can be expressed. Think of Einstein’s E=mc2 (the energy contained in an object equals the mass of the object multiplied by the square of the speed of light).

Inner peace by definition comes from within and not derived from an external source, though the right external sources can occasionally trigger the inner experience. Many people in the busy, consumer driven societies of the 21st century have been told to seek fulfilment outside of themselves. Constant messages from the media tell us to define ourselves by owning the latest consumer products. Implicit in those messages is that you will feel unfulfilled unless you have those products and services. Consumerism is not necessarily a bad thing; it has led to a steady improvement in people’s quality of life in general. Consumerism is a problem in a person’s progress towards enlightenment when one’s perspective is limited to the view that consumerism is all there is.

Meditation establishes primary attention on your inner self. You can continue to live in the material world, but that world must be put into its proper perspective as being your secondary reality.

Meditation creates a peaceful inner space within which you can become aware of the more subtle aspects of yourself that have been hitherto obscured by the noise of the outer world. In this space, your Intuition grows stronger, revealing to you a rich stream of subtle knowledge to help you understand yourself and the world you find yourself in. Meditation can therefore lead to great happiness. Plus, it is free and completely natural.

    By no means a comprehensive in-depth analysis, rather, as the title suggests a brief guide to the fundamental principle of meditation that can get anyone started. One other mantra that readers may find useful is to say/think the phrase 'let go' on the out breath and visualise letting go of current worries, hang-ups or troubling issues.
