Samatha Meditation wants to calm your mind, allow you to focus single topics and thus see things more clearly. Calming down confusing thoughts will allow you to be more focused. This in return will give you more clarity. You will develop inner Strength and Calmness.
This Meditation is often followed by the Vipassna Meditation. The Dhammakaya Meditation is even combining elements of those two. Samatha is also the base for the Satipatthana Meditation. It is clear: A calmer mind, mixed with insights lead to higher concentration and wisdom, potentially even to enlightenment.
As other Meditations, also this one brings the best results, if you practice it regularly. The more often you practice, the easier will it be. Please also note: There are around 40 different types of Samatha meditation available. We show you here a version, focusing on the breath, as this is suitable for most people.
If you should feel any kind of pain during the Meditation, e.g. caused by a sitting position, please directly stop and contact a physician. Your health goes first.
