Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Meditation is the seventh part of Ashtang Yog Philosophy. Its eight parts are yam, niyam, asan, prannayam, pratyahaar, dharnna, dhyan, Samadhi.
So, it is an eternal tradition that the said philosophy is learnt in person from a learned acharya of Vedas and Ashtang Yog Philosophy. You are therefore advised either to come here or seek local learned acharya to learn meditation properly which is mentioned in Vedas.

Sapana: Pranam swamiji!! Aapka bahot bahot aabhar,ke aapne mere shankao ka nirasan kiya. Kya ‘garud puran’ me likhi baate sach hai? Kaunsa garud puran padhane ke liye genuine hai? Kisibhi vyakti ki mrityu ke paschat unki aatma ko shanti pradan karne ke liye kya karna chahiye?
Swami Ram Swarup: Mera aapko ashirwad beti. Aur jab bhi kuchh poochhna ho aap faurn likhein, garud purann mein likhee baatein sach nahi hain apitu ved virudh hain. Isliye vedon ke vidwaan garud purann ko nahi maante, mrityu ke pashchat atma kee shanti ke liye ved mantron se yajyen karna chahiye.
