Yoga Style Description:
Provide your description for Meditation as you see fit. Do not attempt to include links or other HTML tags as they will not appear in your submission.
Today, the word Meditation is used in a variety of contexts. In yoga, Meditation is known by the sanskrit word, Dhyana. Dhyana is the 7th stage of Classical Ashtanga Yoga, which is characterized by a state of prolonged, spontaneous (free-flowing) concentration, whereby the sense of separation (ego self) has dissolved into a uniform state of oneness. Meditation (Dhyana) is part of Samyama Yoga, or the inner stages of yoga, represented in Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga system as the 6th, 7th and 8th stages respectively of Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (absorption) and Samadhi (cosmic consciousness). However, today the word Meditation is commonly used to refer to an array of practices which can include a variety of techniques for improving concentration, refining awareness, etc. Many schools and teachers have developed their own “brand” of Meditation designed to fulfill a specific purpose, from the simplest practices for stress reduction and relaxation, to higher processes extending into the realms of deeper awareness, inner peace and transformation. Thus, one should contact the yoga provider directly to gain specific information about the Meditation classes or programs that they offer. Source: International Yogalayam, http://www.intl-yoga.com
