Meditation is an inward journey, a door to self-discovery. These three meditations from the yoga tradition provide a comprehensive introduction to meditation. These practices help to develop a cheerful, clear, and calm mind, bringing about a gradual transformation of consciousness. Use any one of them for daily practice to experience inner focus, the awakening of an inner calm, and harmony of body and mind.
