Hi Sheila,


There are many different forms of meditation practiced in Buddhism. None of them are used by all Buddhists, and there is no one form of meditation that is Buddhist meditation. They're all Buddhist meditation. So you need to tell us what form of meditation you are talking about before we can comment.


We can't decide for you if a particular form of meditation is for you. You'll have to try it and see how it goes. :)

You must try free guided meditation available at


www.clicktomeditate.com


to get some idea about different meditation techniques.


Buddhist mindfulness based meditation is the one that you may start with, so you go straight to 'mindfulness' section and read about it.

Buddhanet has guides to some forms of meditation, created by Buddhists and based on meditation used by Theravada Buddhists. And they tell you what type of meditation it is, rather than calling it "Buddhist meditation". :)

Buddhists who meditate can tell you what school or schools their form of meditation is associated with, and what their meditation is called. For example, many Theravadans practice vipassana meditation, and Soto Zen Buddhists practice shikantaza. Chanting while meditating is not common, although some Buddhists do it.
