Meditation with 1 sensation

The beginning of meditation is simple and easy.

We experience the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.

The initiation of meditation often recommends focusing on one of these senses, among the five, as a starting point.

Let me illustrate a meditation that commonly begins with the most fundamental sense, which is the breath.

Close your eyes (limiting sight), in a relatively quiet space (limiting hearing), and refrain from eating (limiting smell and taste).

And then, begin with the breath. Feel the sensation of the air beneath your nose as you inhale and exhale.

I recommend starting with one sense and gradually opening up to others, progressing in this manner.

Mastering these basics thoroughly may lead to a state where meditation becomes a companion, even when all senses are simultaneously active.
