It is very nice that you are getting into meditation. Meditation
means focusing attention on something. That something matters. If
you are focusing your attention on your enemy then your meditative
state is sorrowful and if you are focusing your attention on your
loved one then your meditative state is joyful. Sorrwful and joyful
states are result of chemical conditions of the body. Imagine, how
quickly body chemistry alters due to focusing attention on
something. So when you have taken up meditation I presume that you
are in search of more and more joyful state of mind.
For that you will have to set your goal first. One goal is
dharmamegha samadhi, that is, independence from time and space, a
state of pure conscience.For a beginner this goal is difficult to
conceive. So I suggest a subgoal, that is,
roopalabanyabalabajrasamhanatwani kaya sampat which means beauty,
gracefulness, strength and toughness are wealths of body. So will
you please set your goal first? Thanks.
