Mind and thought control: This is one of the most popular methods of meditation techniques. In this procedure, people try to bring their thoughts under control and eventually try to concentrate on aspect of body function or some other topic that is relevant to their meditation. The difficulty with this procedure is the elimination of unwanted thoughts from the mind. This is difficult to achieve because human mind is filled with thoughts – some useful and other useless. People will first have to learn and understand the different types of thoughts and then try to eliminate these one by one until the mind is completely free of all other thoughts but the one that they intend to think about. This method increases the concentration levels and focusing capability of the mind.
