Benson’s book The Relaxation Response
Herbert Benson’s book, The Relaxation Response, de-mystifies meditation and renames it “The Relaxation Response.” Research has proven that meditation reduces stress and improves health. Regular meditation helps decrease blood pressure and the resting heart rate. This is because meditation counteracts the physiological effects of stress.
The Upanishads are a collection of ancient texts that explore the inner world and how to cultivate awareness. Written over many centuries, they are based on the experiences and knowledge of ancient yogis. While tradition claims there are over two hundred Upanishads, Shankara commented on just eleven of them, known as the “principal Upanishads.” The Upanishads are written in beautiful poetic verse, descriptive short stories, and dialogues between historical figures.
The Bhagavad Gita contains some of the most ancient meditation techniques known to man. The sixth chapter speaks of meditation on the pure Self and God, while the seventh and eighth chapters describe meditation on the form of the Universe. These ancient meditation techniques can help you overcome your inner limitations and attain total freedom.
The Vajrayana tradition focuses on tantra techniques such as Maha-ati and Dzogchen. These techniques are considered superior to the more common Mahayana practices. They are considered more skillful and provide a quicker path to liberation.
The ancient Chinese philosophy of Taoism is a valuable teaching for meditation. The Taoist philosophy focuses on becoming one with the ‘Tao’, or ‘universal wisdom,’ and is based on meditation practices that combine mindfulness, contemplation, and visualization.
