Open Source Meditation
We are the creators of Open Source Meditation,
a non-profit, open exploration of all meditation techniques, styles
and traditions without any of the obligations or hidden agendas.
Open Source Meditation is open, rational and logical. It says real meditation
is not exclusive to one religion or one meditation technique
or science or
even one sport or one field of art or creative expression.
Meditation is free and open to all just as open
source software is free and open.
Meditation put simply, is the new common sense. It should
not be encumbered by the fundamentalism of one group, religion
or even science. Secularists and atheists can meditate just
as effectively as meditators that are religious, whether that
be Christian meditation, or Buddhist meditation, pyramid meditation, zen meditation, chakra meditation or
Islamic styles of meditation.
Nearly all popular meditation groups are tied to a specific
style or religion. Transcendental Meditation, for example, advocates
just one meditation technique, mantra meditation, and to be
financially committed to their group.
Buddhist meditation groups similarly focus on their religion and usually
one meditation technique, mindfulness meditation.
Most Christian meditation groups are typically also stylistically,
financially and religiously constrained.
