What are we doing right now?

Vedic Vipassana / Mindfulness meditation isn’t about trying to drop your thought; simply observing your review or focusing your mind on one object. On the contrary, it is a straightforward but highly effective practice of bringing your attention to the present moment.

We pay keen attention to the present moment of our actions, thoughts, emotions, and surrounding. Be mindful of every action, and be present.

Our mind is like a child; it wanders around so quickly, and so are our thoughts. They come from every direction and overwhelm our senses. A search for happiness is our mind’s natural state. It always craves desires and fulfillment, so it constantly tries to chase and overlook the bliss of the present moment. Thus, it collects more disappointments and negative results.

How to practice Vedic Vipassana / Mindfulness meditation

Our nature of inner being is bliss, so as we start meditating. Naturally, the mind goes inward. Concentrating or controlling the mind becomes unnecessary as long as you are in the present and mindful.

Pay attention to your every thought and action sprouting from your thought, without judging from good/evil thoughts or actions. Just be in the present moment.

As you start watching your every move, your mind starts responding mindfully to your thoughts, resulting great sense of tranquility, and you begin gaining ascendant of your emotions. The awareness reaches the inner vigilance, devoid of any perception.
