eg in Nepalese tradition one form of achieving the god state of Shiva is through rituals the involves meditation, yoga, bodly control,  and special plants or brews. Also the Sadhu in India make use of plants to reach deep meditative states. I am 36 and I have started meditation 7 months ago. Meditation comes easly and I would do it all day long, almost feeling I knew before how to do it but sometime I feel uncertain between different options. Also what is advanced meditative practice? Thank you so so so much for what you are doing

This platform is not for teaching Hindu beliefs and practices. Also, what you call as 'meditation' might be different from Buddhist meditation. I would recommend you to try this meditation technique.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
I am quite advance for the following the meditation technique that you are suggesting. However, my question was not related to Hindu beliefs nor to how to meditate in Buddihsm. My question referred to what is the difference between Shamanic / holotropic breath work and Buddist meditative states as they appear to me very similar but reached thruogh very different means.

Many thanks and Love and Light

I would not call myself too advanced to follow a certain mediation technique, if the said technique leads to complete freedom from suffering.  Anyways, "Buddhist meditative states" is a vague thing to say. There are many meditative states described in Buddhism. Perhaps if you compare a specific state described in Buddhism to something taught in Shamanic practices, we can have a more meaningful conversation.
