This is an excellent article written by my favorite spiritual author Peter Russel on the problem of disturbance during meditation. In nutshell, if you resist the disturbance, it will bother you more. Just accept it as a part of present state of the whole existence. Accept the inevitable and you will be at ease.

Disturbance during meditation from Street traffic, mobile phones, Siren, Horn honkings and sounds of street hawkers are just few things among many which will try to break your rhythm for Meditation.
The building where I used to run a meditation group was on the same street as a fire station. One could almost guarantee that sometime during the meditation a fire engine would come rushing past, sirens wailing. Not surprisingly, people would afterwards complain. “How could I meditate with that noise?” [click to continue…]
Without my explaining anything please read this which is self-explanatory. A readers request I got from email :
The seed mantra “Om” which is pronounced Aum is a very sacred sound for all Hindus.
It is a name for God. It is the vibration that resulted in all creation.
The word “Shanthi” means peace. When Hindus chant Om Shanthi, Shanthi Shanthihi, they are praying for peace for all humanity.
I would like to organize an event called Om Around the World, starting at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, November 1, 2013 and ending at midnight on November 3, 2013.
Starting on Friday, November 1, 2013, I would like people all over the world to chant the mantra “Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthihi.” I understand that not all people around the will be able to chant the mantra.
However, I would like at least a few individuals or small groups of people from each country around the world to chant the peace mantra “Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthihi” for at least a minute.
Please upload your chants online with the title “Om Around the World” and include the name of your country after the title.
Let us pray and hope that this chanting of “Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthihi” around the world will help create peace around the world.
Will you be able to help me make this event a reality by announcing it free of charge in your blog?
So here I am. Starting at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, November 1, 2013 and ending at midnight on November 3, 2013, the world will be celebrating “Om Around the World”. No matter in which part of the world you live, try to participate in it by chanting Om Shanti Mantra.
Here is a simple recitation of this Mantra from Youtube

Guest post by Mollie Birney (from www.MusicAsMeditation.com ) Meditation is evolving, and it’s evolving as quickly as we are. Think of humanity as a lion that’s growing stronger, more agile and more inventive; the lion tamer has to stay as strong, agile and inventive as the beast to have even a prayer of taming it. […]
