1 Second Meditation: Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche on HOW TO meditate anywhere, anytime
Helmet reveals brainwave patterns (Sage U).
"Trying" to learn how to meditate is hard. Just doing it is much simpler -- when it finally clicks! This is a short video on how to meditate anytime and anywhere.
The shortest meditation technique using mind and body is explained by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. First there's the Monkey Mind. Let's give it a job: watch the breath.
What is meditation? Meditation means dispassionate awareness, not getting caught, hung up, or hooked on what's happening. We just watch, are just aware. Whatever we do with awareness is meditation in a sense, explains Rinpoche.
Watching the breath or listening to birds can be "meditation." As long as these activities are free from any other distraction, the Monkey Mind (being pulled into the habit of discursive thinking), it is effective meditation.

Meditation is not some technique but a way of life. It stands for a cessation of the thought process. It describes a state of consciousness when the mind is suddenly free from scattered thoughts and various habitual patterns.

Rather than diffusion and confusion, there is clarity and concentration (being pulled into the object of awareness rather than distractions from it).
Rinpoche nails it by putting everything we need to know in plain English. Mingyur Rinpoche Meditation Mind and Body Part 2 can now be watched.
The key for shortest meditation technique is to watch the breath and silence the Monkey Mind by watching the breath, by becoming fascinated and one-pointed on the breath, which mirrors and is interdependent with the mind. Rinpoche helps people throughout the world through easy techniques and guided meditations like the ones given here.
