What is Vedic meditation?
One of the most common questions we are asked is “what is Vedic meditation?” To really get to grips with the answer, you have to consider the conditions that foster a need for it. The unprecedented rigours of modern living are taking their toll on us, and distorting the way all of our physical and mental systems are working.
As a result, impulses go through the nervous system to our brain and affect our state of mind. It creates a vicious cycle whereby the more strain we are under, the more susceptible to stress we become. And the more susceptible to stress we are, the more out of balance our systems become, exacerbating our situation.
Before long, we find ourselves on the threshold of stress and emotion, with even minor situations triggering us into emotion and reactivity. Annoyingly, this tends to get worse as time goes on. We develop something called Premature Cognitive Commitments, which are negative associations we store up in our subconscious and cause us to jump to conclusions and get irritated by all sorts of stimuli that we’re not even consciously aware of. In these situations, common approaches such as mindfulness are not always effective.
