Mind means moods, thoughts, opinions, ideas, all these things that we collect. No mind is meditation. Dawn & dusk are good for meditation. When u meditate u go off the influence of the mind & go into the self. The self is Shiva tatva. Shiva tatva means always benevolent, caring, loving, uplifting. That consciousness deep within you which is caring, loving & benevolent will nullify the negative influences of the mind.
Meditation helps to change your perspective. It improves the way you perceive things. It brings clarity in the mind. It improves your interaction with people around –what you say, how you react and act in different situations, you become more aware. In general, from a stress-free society to peace and health in individuals and from a violence-free society to a sorrow-free soul – all are side effects of meditation.
Meditation has 3 rules.
1) I don't want anything. How is it possible when I want better job, grades, family & prosperity? Only for next 10 minutes say “I want nothing”.
2) I do nothing: at least for next 10 minutes. I don’t concentrate or focus on any thoughts: good or bad -let them come & pass.
3) I am nothing. For next few minutes, put off the label of being student, corporate, male, female, anything.
