Some people talk about deep guided meditations and deep meditation music. However, anyone who has truly experienced a powerful meditation will know full well that guided meditations and music are just child’s play compared to the techniques above.


The Deepest Meditation Technique

The deepest meditation technique according to Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi is Self Inquiry, which he called the most efficient and insightful way of uncovering oneness.

This method is also the one that New York Times bestselling author Eckhart Tolle advocates in his books. It is a deep meditation that you must prepare for. 

Let me show you how to do it.

1:  Prepare for deep meditation

To prepare for deep meditation you will want to warm up your body. You can do this with gentle yoga stretches like Child’s Pose (Balasana) and Easy Pose (Sukhasana).  

You will definitely want to sit with good posture to stimulate the flow of prana. The founder of philosophical Tao, Lao Tzu would recommend placing your tongue lightly against your hard pallet too. Overall, you should feel relaxed, stable, grounded, and energised.

2: Mudra

For our deep meditation technique we will use a mudra (hand position).

The best mudra for deep meditation is Prana Mudra, which is done by lightly pressing the tips of the fifth and fourth fingers on the pad of the thumb, and gently reaching out the index and third finger. This is said to heighten the flow of prana. 

It’s probably no surprise that the best mantra for deep meditation is Om. It is, after all, the essence of ultimate 

3: Take 25 mindful breaths

Close your eyes. Take at least 25 mindful breaths. Observe the breath moving through your nostrils, through your throat, into your diaphragm, and then returning. This will activate your parasympathetic nervous system and reduce amygdala activity, so you are relaxed and ready to go deep in meditation.

4: Recite the koan “What am I in this moment?” Investigate the self 


Begin to recite the koan “What am I in this moment?” Say it slowly in time with your breathing. You will observe that your mind attempts to answer this question. Your mind will scan for evidence of your own existence in the present moment. For instance, your mind may be directed to a thought. And so, your mind is saying, “I am this. I am this thought.” (like Rene Descartes said, “I think therefore I am”…. supposedly). Now say to your mind, “This is just a thought and nothing more.” Observe the thought like you would in Buddhist Vipassana (insight meditation). See it for what it is – just a momentary thought. 

Continue to recite, “What am I in this moment?” Your mind will again search for evidence of your existence. Perhaps you become aware of bodily sensations, in which case say to yourself, “This is just a sensation and nothing more”.


As you continue asking, “What am I in this present moment,” your mind will continue finding evidence. By observing the evidence, you will notice that you are simply a combination of mental phenomena and sensations. The more you observe these phenomena, the more you will peel away the layers of kleshas and samskaras, undoing your dualistic existence, ultimately achieving oneness. 

5: Meditate on the emptiness at the centre of your consciousness 


As you continue to investigate the self, you will notice that there is complete emptiness at the centre of your being. Meditate on that emptiness.

And that is the deepest meditation technique in the world.

6: Practice


To enter a deep meditation state requires practise. British-Australian Theravada Buddhist monk Ajahn Brahm says that “Meditation is like a gym in which you develop the powerful mental muscles of calm and insight.” The more you train those muscles, the deeper you will go in your meditation practice.  

7: Watch for these signs of deep meditation 


The signs of deep mediation are a feeling of disconnection from your day-to-day life. Things that usually bother you don’t even seem relevant. As Zen Master Hsing Yun says, “Meditation will not carry you to another world, but it will reveal the most profound and awesome dimensions of the world in which you already live.” 

Another sign of deep meditation is an out of body experience, almost like an astral projection. I once felt like I was drifting over the world looking down on myself from far off. That was a powerful experience that I will never forget.  Or you might just feel the most profound sense of stillness and inner peace.
