It is valuable to know and understand the mechanism of a particular meditation technique apart from just following the instructions. When you understand the logical principles behind a particular technique, a new revelation about the nature of your body, mind and more opens up for you. This process also helps you in the following ways:
◆ Builds a context and prepares your body-mind to do the technique more effectively.
◆ Keeps your meditation journey motivating with every new technique offering a new understanding and experience.
◆ Gives you subjects for contemplation which not only are relevant during meditation but also are applicable to other aspects of your daily life.
◆ Once you have learnt the crux of a particular technique, you can even adapt the technique to your own rhythm.
◆ Eventually, it helps you to get rid of the technique itself and become an independent silent mediator without using any techniques.
