Rising body temperature whilst meditating - Dhamma Wheel
A Buddhist discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Theravāda
I follow the standard meditation practice as described by Yuttadhammo in his youtube videos.
When I meditate, I get a drastic rise in body temperature after some time. It's not a problem, but it gets to the point where sweat drips from my forehead. It is in no way unpleasant and does not interfere with the meditation itself.
But nevertheless, I feel that I should ask someone more experienced if this means anything. Can anyone help?
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling... perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
I also had this constantly. I found if I was averse to it it grew worse. It still happens occasionally, but now I simply note it and return to my practice, which is a mantra-like phrase linked to the in and out breath.
This can come with concentration and is not abnormal nor dangerous. There is the Tibetan meditation practice called Tummo designed to produce heat. Be happy that you get the results without extra special training.
