Meditation according to the Himalayan Tradition of the meditation masters is a systematic practice that leads you through body, breath, and mind to have the direct experience of ‘That’ which is beyond body, breath, and mind; the absolute reality, the objectless center of consciousness, whose nature is peace, happiness, and bliss. This “Asana Chart” presents some postures that can be used during this systematic meditation practice.
Choose at least ONE posture from EVERY row, so that you put together your own sequence for your meditation practice, according to your capacity.
When your are done with your breathing practices you can either stay in the same meditation posture or change to a less simple meditation posture from row 9.
Ideally this sequence is done at every meditation session.
Although coaching or guidance in the systematic meditation sequence is preferred, this Asana Chart can inspire and support you to start to meditate by yourself. It shows you that systematic meditation is not a complicated process, but something that can be done by everyone. Everyone will be able to do the first of every row. Just stay within your comfortable capacity. Don’t wait. start today!
If you know other asanas/yogapostures that are not presented here, you can always add them to the sequence in addition to row 1 till 7. Keep the order of the sequence as it is; first do stretches, then relaxation, breathing practices and meditation practice. Remember that the goal of doing asanas/yogapostures is to sit comfortable in your meditation posture during your meditation practice.
most simple meditation sequence
mostly standing postures meditation sequence
‘on the ground’ meditation sequence (sitting and lying down)
extensive meditation sequence (going back and forward between row 1 till 7)

Yoga Meditation, Contemplation, and Devotion for Self-realization
This site is an offering to those who deeply long to experience Pure Consciousness that is known as Divine Mother or Tripura (‘Tri’ means three, and ‘pura’ means city); She is the one that lives in the three cities of Waking, Dreaming and Deep Sleep. Temporary leaving behind the three cities and residing only in Pure Consciousness is called Self-realization. Another name for this realization is Yoga; the union of the individual self with the universal Self; the union of Atman with Brahman, or Shiva with Shakti; or the dis-union of Purusha and Prakriti. Some might think of Tripura as an anthropomorphic being but She is not, She is the Non-dual Reality in which all appearing manifestation seems to exist. All that is, is the Non-dual Reality.
On this site the teachings of Yoga, Vedanta, and Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra are offered to guide you in learning to meditate directly on Tripura by using modern ways of communication such as through animations, while preserving the ancient wisdom. These teaching have been given to us by an ancient lineage of meditation masters, lovingly called the Tradition of the Himalayan masters. These practices lead us to a space of stillness and silence where Yoga meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer converge into deep devotion and constant awareness of Tripura. At the end of the journey when all efforts are exhausted, grace will dawn. This is known as shaktipata, through which the final barrier is removed, which is the piercing of the bindu, and leads to the direct experience of Non-dual Reality. This finally reveals an unimaginable Joy from knowing the Non-dual Reality or Pure Consciousness!
