Hello and good evening
I heard a lot the meditation named Vipassana, and also sometimes Bhavana, walking, Jhana, Anapanasati, and I wanted to ask for short explanations of what it is and what are the purposes of these meditations?
When I meditate, I usually meditate half and hour a day with an intention to one hour per-day, I am not chanting mantras or something like that, I'm simply sitting full lotus and listening to my breathe, without interfering to the speed and rate of the breathe, and also if some thoughts are beginning to arise, I am not trying to ignore them, nor attach to them, I'm simply concentrating in them and they vanish and disappear.
Is this meditation is good? I like it, but I would like to know what each of the above-mentioned meditations exactly are, a short explanation for each.
By the way, I read the Bible, Quran, Mahabharta, Tipitaka etc a lot, so I really know the meaning of being kind and good, I mean I am not studying these virtues from meditation, I don't achieve anything from meditation, I guess only remove the anger, hatred, clinging and so on.
