Meditation room is the quiet place without any distraction where one can seat and meditate and begin a journey into a new level of relaxation and awareness. Each meditation
serves as a specific purpose, depending on what one want to achieve. It may be a very large room to a quiet corner at home or may be a separate centre outside the home. A meditation room will give a place to participate in daily yoga, chants and meditation without interruption.
How to Create a Meditation Room
It is suggested that everyone should create a space in their homes for daily meditation; a space that provides opportunity to recharge the body both physically and mentally. It is very helpful when establishing a regular meditation practice to have a special place where one sits each day. The meditation room features few furniture and accessories to help create a beautiful, tranquil meditation space in home. There are many elements that should be considered when creating a mediation room. They are as follows:
The first thing required is a quiet place with no distractions and it should be as empty as possible. A comfortable room that can provide privacy and therefore the place that is away from the major activities of the household will serve the best.
Make sure the meditation room is clean and clutter-free.
The room must be plain, painted with muted colours and decorated with subdued elements.
A window is required to bring the light but it is not the must. Rooms with views of garden, lake or ocean just serve the purpose wonderfully.
Meditative room must not be jumbled and the mobile phones should be kept away.
Many people feel that having aromatherapy candles, incense, tabletop fountains, indoor plants are helpful. Also soothing music, natural sounds, chants and hymns, holy books, symbols, mementoes and photos of near and dear ones help someone to relax better.
For sitting purpose one might choose a comfortable chair with a straight back, floor mat or bench. If these are too uncomfortable one might use small pillows or cushions.
For Yoga meditation the wooden flooring, a specialized mat or rug or carpets are the best choice.
