True meditation is a form of Sitting Qi Gong. For most people this is not understood because throughout the years the true teaching of meditation has been watered down or lost. Some of the more famous Sitting Qi Gong is the Himalayan Buddhist monk with Tummo breathing.
Meditation starts with Breathing. Learning how to breathe is the most important first step to meditation.
Second is about channeling energy to calm the mind by moving it away from the brain. Then the breathing can also be used to move Qi to heal the body and regulate normal body function.
When you are in deep meditative state you don’t need any form of music or sounds to be in this tranquility.
