How to Prepare to Meditate?
According to the Yogic Sciences, there are several Logical Steps to follow in order to tame the body, the senses and the mind before reaching the state of Meditation.
What are these steps?
The Patanjali Sutras define 8 steps. These are:
1) and 2) Yama and Niyama

They are attitudes that we can apply in life, such as:
Satya (express the truth),
Ahimsa (non-violence), etc.
3) Asanas, Mudras, Bandhas
Psycho-physical exercises to keep the body in optimal conditions, flexible and strong.
Meditation is very powerful in group and more profound during Agnihotra.
To purify the vital energy channels (Nadis) and activate the Chakras
To control our attention and turn inward
To deepen our attention towards a single point or Object
To become one with our object of concentration
To reach the state of “Oneness with Everyone and Everything”.
That is “Oneness with God”.
