There is no "right" meditation technique for everybody. Some techniques work better for certain people while other techniques work better for other people. The important thing is to find what works for you.

 
What are the abc's of meditation?
 

There are a few recommended guidelines for meditation:

 
*It should be done every day, preferably at the same time
*It should preferably be done before a meal rather than after a meal
* A spot should be set aside for meditation, which should be a quiet place and used for nothing but meditation
*One should sit with the spine straight and vertical (a chair is ok to use)

Nobody can decide which meditation technique is right for you. You may try different techniques and whichever allows you to achieve the state of mind you desire can be considered the right one. If you are simply trying to relax, guided meditations are the ones that most commonly used and you can find many different ones if you Google ''guided meditation''.

The 'right' meditation technique is the most suitable one which you feel comfortable in practicing. It is not recommended to learn meditation yourself by reading books or watching video. You'd better find a competent meditation teacher to learn from.

Is any kind of music or audio used for meditation?

I remember back in high school someone used music, but I'm not entirely sure that he was actually meditating in the strict sense of the word.

Hmm. I'm always a little suspicious of advice like this. It seems tailor-made to enshrine gurus in positions of power over people - just like religions where your relationship with God relies on a relationship with a priest. I can't buy it. A teacher is helpful, but the idea that if you can't find a teacher you are doomed to inferior meditation and never reaching spiritual enlightenment is just poisonous!

Besides, not everyone who wants to learn meditation has access to teacher. What if you're a teenager stuck in the middle of the Bible Belt where local authorities tell you that meditation lets the Devil in? You've got little other option than going self-taught, then.

Meditation includes many technique that depends upon the trainer too. Some technique are easy and some are difficult. You cannot learn meditation by yourself, it is not advised too.  Practice meditation with a well trained trainer that will be good for your  health.

The most important thing you need to do is to find out a peaceful place free from noise or the city life, otherwise you will not perform your meditations if you can't concentrate.
