Greetings,


I have a few questions regarding meditation. I am asking because I have read on www.chabad.org that one form of meditating is to relax and recite "echad." I have been devoting like 10-20 minutes twice a day for like 3 weeks and I am able to have a clear mind, but it isnt really insightful. Am I performing this correctly?! Now I was wondering if anyone knows any other techniques that would be considered "safe."

Also, I have been studying for the Chumash for a while now, I was wondering what is the relationship with Torah and the Zohar, when is one ready to read etc etc.

im assuming echad is the mantra. i never used a mantra, but i think the key is to let the mantra fade away into the nothingness once a deep enough state is reached

There are two types of meditation. One that benefits your mind and body, and the other that replenishes your spirit. Of course, I feel they both add to each.

When you chant a mantra over and over again, you are allowing no space for thoughts in your mind. This creates peace within you and allows your body to fall into a deep relaxation state. This deep relaxation has a plethora of healing benefits and can return you to a state of amazing health, however, it is mainly that. Search "Transcendental Meditation" (although they do claim it provides spirit). With these mantras it really doesn't matter much what you chant, as you are just creating space.

So, to create spirit what must we do? Well, you have to have total silence of the mind, not even a mantra. You can feel, hear, and see the spirit if you are totally quiet. This is pretty difficult though, what with the chatter-mind. So, what the previous poster above me said can help a lot too. Recite your mantra, but eventually see if you can let it fade into nothingness. Enjoy this nothingness. Do not label it or think about it, just feel it.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: Can't help you with the Zohar part ^-^ Sorry!

Thanks to both of you for you post. I will have to try as you suggested. Echad means one. The meditation I am going after is an old gift, from Avinu Yaakov. He used to share these gifts with other men and send them east, these men became known as Brahms. I didnt know if you guys knew that are not. lol anyway thanks both of you again


peace
