Can you learn swimming without ever jumping into water?
Probably not. For two decades, I meditated on sounds, on forms, on breath, on the formless. In cities, cremation grounds, secluded spots and abandoned temples. I relentlessly experimented with tantric, sonic, visual, Hindu and Buddhist systems of meditation.
I came to the realization that flawless and intense practice built over time is the only way to succeed in meditation. Just doing incorrect meditation everyday does not bring even an iota of change, forget the real rewards of meditation and yogic feats associated with it.
Based on my thousands of hours of strenuous meditation, here’s a text that tells you everything you need to know about meditation. This book shows you how to meditate correctly, various styles of meditation and many yogic practices leading you to the final stage of samadhi.
Replete with ancient and contemporary references, first hand experiences, A Million Thoughts is most suited for the modern reader who wishes to master the art of meditation for a better life.
