    Hello there,

    I am new to the forum here.
    Yesterday suddenly I found an inkling to find a forum where common people share their experiences with Meditation and I am here now.

    I have done a week long course of Meditation and some plain old breathing exercises.

    I have never tried meditation with music playing in the background, how does that help? Will it distract/aid in meditation?

    Whatever I do, I just indulge in long conversations with myself, then I realize what I am doing and return back to the breathing practice.
    I tried it for a month and so, then I lost interest and left it.
    What eXactly I should be looking to achieve here?

    thanks again,
    sandeep

    Welcome

    Welcome to the forum sandeep. What I would suggest is downloading the free meditation course from the site, if you havent already and perhaps sticking with that for a while and also read a little about the entrainment programme thats offered here.Theres a lot of information regarding that. In one way theres a little more to it than just listening to music though but in another way not much more :)

    I dont know a great deal about vipassana but what I would suggest is to stick with one technique at a time.

    Best Wishes
    Graham
