Can anybody here, teach me how to meditate? Frankly speaking, I really dont know how to do it. What are things I need in doing meditation? Is there a particular position in doing it? What are the factors to be considered in doing it? Thanks, for the Info to whoever can share me the techniques in doing it.

It's always best to learn meditation through a teacher. However to experience and get more interested in it, try this. Sit in any comfortable position with your back erect and feel your breath both in and out. There are other things you could do as well like keeping your mind fixed on a particular image, the repitition of some words or just watch how your thoughts keep moving around. Do this for a few days , starting for about 10- 15 minutes and see how it goes. I'm no master, but started this was as well.

Meditation is a great stress reliever! I love to meditate, although I dont do it as much as I used to. I basically sit in a quiet around, with your back straight, and let all the thoughts and stress leave your mind. Consentrate on your breathing and nothing else. Dismiss any thoughts that enter your mind. Do this for as long as you like in a place where you won't be easily distracted. It might be hard the first few times but after that it will get easier to release your thoughts. Good luck meditating! www.how-to-meditate.org is also a great website to fine tune your posture and learn more about the history of meditation. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
