6 Best Meditation Retreats in India
by Rishikesh Yogis
‘Meditation’ – a technique, and a process perceived as many things by different people. For
some, it is a way of life. For others, it is a method that demands time in life. And, for the rest it is a non-decipherable concept. We do not know which category you might belong to. Whether ‘meditation’ is a way of life for you or something that demands time from life, or it could just be an unexplored science that fascinates you – ‘meditation’ is undeniably unique and one of the most invigorating forms of science ever developed. There comes a time in our lives when the mental and emotional clutter overflows creating an imbalance in our mental, emotional and physical health. This may lead to insomnia, anxiety, feeling low, depression, and other physical disorders like BP, heart problems, diabetes etc. Under such circumstances a Meditation Retreat in India is one such elemental experience that is worth living at least once in a year.

Meditation is a vast science with different segments and techniques. It is quite easy to feel unsure about which one is ideal. Hence, we have listed the six most inspiring methods to explore from when on a Meditation Trip in India: Vipassana Meditation Achieving mental purification by seeing things as they really are – this is the niche of Vipassana Meditation. Retreats based on Vipassana meditation encourage participants to follow a life of discipline and observe silence and mindfulness all the time. One of the most ancient and the most pain stacking meditation techniques since the time of Lord Buddha, Vipassana Meditation is meant to help achieve mental and physical peace in the most vital situation. Known for its tougher-than-life process, this meditation technique is taken by very few people due to the same reason. However, if you do decide to give this one a try then you are advised to have nothing on mind, but ‘patience and devotion’. Transcendental Meditation Achieving a state of inner-calmness and peace even when surrounded by chaos and confusion – this is the purpose of Transcendental Meditation. In this form of meditationThis classification of meditation tour in India is specifically for the stressed out souls looking to tune out disparaging things out of their lives. It opens the gateway to achieving ‘inner peace’. Heart Rhythm Meditation The Heart Rhythm Meditation focuses on a downward style of meditation technique that works on the process of consciously observing the movements of cardiac muscles as the focus travels from the core of the body to its feet. This form of meditation technique helps build positive and elated vibes in people. It progressively helps on all three major levels – mentally, physically and spiritually. Mindfulness Meditation One of the ancient forms of Buddhist meditation techniques, Mindfulness Meditation focuses on two keywords ‘Awareness and Acceptance’. Under this particular technique, thoughts are set free. The meditator does not try to control their mind in order to concentrate better – instead, they accept things, thoughts, and images as they appear in the conscious. Eventually, when the wandering pauses, the mind is able to focus back with much more ease and intensity. This method helps you direct towards living life mindfully. Guided Visualization Meditation To invoke calm and happy thoughts, guided visualization meditation technique seeks visual support of an object or an image that inspires the practicing individual. It uses the power of imagination – as an individual imagines a situation or an experience that renders peace and happiness to them internally. This imaginary experience helps achieve peace, tranquility and delivers feelings of fulfillment to the mind. Kundalini Meditation Kundalini Yoga retreats are based on the traditions of traditional Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Tantra philosophy.

Silent Meditation Retreat in Rishikesh: Feel the Comfort of Silence
by Rishikesh Yogis
Once you indulge in a silent meditation retreat, you get to inject the stillness of silence within.
This way you can feel the energy surrounding you in an enhanced way. The calmness of the atmosphere will be experienced in a different way. Silent meditation retreat in Rishikesh is a programme wherein people collect voluntarily to meditate for days on a stretch, without having any conversations with one another. Initially, silent retreats will be tough to execute. There will be different emotions bursting out such as loneliness, confusion, discomfort, exclusion etc. Once you go ahead with the programme, it will build an atmosphere of stillness. The retreat will help you understand things in a different way. For example, you will be able to observe the ticking of the clock, which we would have otherwise ignored. We can hear the chirping of birds and, feel the breezy wind, and would appreciate and feel the beauty of nature in a completely different sense. The silence can be intriguing initially or, it can prove to be a discomfort for most of us. Once you drown yourself completely in the nourishing atmosphere, you will start cherishing silence and by the end of the programme, you will look forward to it with zeal. Benefits of Silent Meditation Retreat When we are having conversations with people, our mind is active. When we express ourselves, our emotions are on the verge of exploding and we are not able to think with clarity. Silence helps in relaxing the mind, as it is not active because we are not having conversation with people. It helps us gain a better perspective on life and, helps us observe things in a better way. It also helps us in developing better connectivity with the self. Our perception towards things changes completely. This can only happen, once we quieten the rummaging thoughts in our mind and uncover those hidden thoughts that are meant to ponder over. Our attitude combines with our thoughts and we lose our concentration and focus. Silent retreats help us in giving a foundation to the meditation practice by increasing our concentration. Since we are not talking, our mind is not active, there is inner and outer peace. There are no social interactions and our thoughts are not scattered. This way we are able to focus deeply on our thoughts. In this materialistic world, there are numerous things that distract us from seeing ourselves clearly. It enables a human being to mirror themselves in a better light. Further, it helps us to connect to feelings and emotions that were overlooked before. We start observing everything around us. We question our lifestyle, our purpose in life, etc. We go out in search of answers. These retreats offer us the opportunity of experiencing noble silence. Our mind indulges in discursive thinking about past experiences, negative thoughts, having conversation with others etc. Silence takes a toll over discursive thinking and ends up calming down the mind. The peace helps us in eliminating the desires and aversions. There is a boost in our self confidence. This means that we have experienced noble silence. When we are sharing the silence with others, we realize that we have built a deeper connection with them. This connection is a deeper connection and it would not have been built if we would have indulged in conversations. The stillness can be felt in a beautiful way if it is experienced amongst beautiful mountains. Silent meditation retreats in Rishikesh allows you to unwind from the busy life of the city and take in the serenity of the mountains. Initially silent meditation will be a tough experience, but once accomplished you will start loving the beauty of silence. It will transform you completely, by giving you better clarity towards life and, will broaden your arena of thinking. Silent meditation retreat is sure to give you an experience of lifetime.

What’s Special in a Meditation Retreat in India – Reasons Why You Must Visit?
by Rishikesh Yogis
Since time immemorial, peace seeking travelers and spiritualists has been coming to India in search
of tranquility and wisdom. This is the land where the first germs of yogic science originated. The model of ashrama –an institution where seekers come to train in the rigors of spiritual life in a community living, is a contribution of Indian thought process which in later day converted into the idea of retreats. Today, we have different kinds of retreats being conducted in India in which elements of yoga, meditation and related spiritual exercise are integrated, promising stress reduction, escape from an urban routine of life, and self discovery. Let’s see in detail why meditation retreats in India are more special— India Practices a Peace Oriented Culture Though yoga and meditation have reached beyond the motherland making way into most of the major world cultures as an alternative lifestyle formula, it is only in India that you will find the influences of yoga in all walks of life. You will find the dictums of non-violence embraced in the lived cultures of the people through non vegetarianism. Non-materialism and simple living is also a part of this. You are going to find the humblest of human beings as your spiritual teachers at these retreats who will drive you towards a dispassionate life. Meditation holidays in India will also introduce you to karma yoga works which involves different kinds of unconditional charitable service to earth. Exquisite Locations Inducing Meditation India is a land of exquisite lands and beautiful souls. The country is walled by the magnificent Himalayas in the North and surrounded by pristine tropical beaches in the South. You can find centers of yogic heritage and rich spiritual culture at both these flanks of the country. Rishikesh—titled as the world capital of yoga in northern India is a Himalayan foothill town where the holy river Ganga flows by—an ideal spot for meditative peace practices. Or, if your calling is from the sea, you can visit Kerala’s coastal paradise hosting some of the top ranked meditation breaks in India. Traditional Values Remain At the Core Yoga as long since veered out of its original meaning becoming a fad for fitness in the Western world. But as a sincere practitioner one must remember that this is an art of good life and spiritual upliftment. A series of moral and ethical codes of the traditional yogic ways form the crux of this practice and it is hard to come by an institution which teaches that. Indian Meditation retreats are presided over by traditional teachers of the Indian roots who take care to propagate such values through their teaching. Meditation through the energy of sound as in mantra is a practice best learnt in India where the extant traditional language of Sanskrit is still practiced. Integrated Retreats Rich with Multiple Disciplines Meditation retreats in India are never going to get boring as there are so much to learn from the multiple strands of teaching available here. In an integrated presentation, you are going to get acquainted with physical discipline of yoga asanas, different techniques of going into dhyana or meditation, ways of nutritious cooking with Ayurveda, and intellectual stimulation with study in yoga philosophy.
