Is it possible to meditate without any technique?
The question you have asked is certainly of great importance because meditation, as such, needs no technique at all. But techniques are needed to remove the obstacles in the way of meditation. So it has to be understood very clearly: meditation itself needs no techniques, it is a simple understanding – an alertness, an awareness. Neither is alertness a technique nor is awareness a technique.
But on the way to being alert there are so many obstacles. For centuries man has been gathering those obstacles. For centuries man has been gathering those obstacles. They need to be removed. Meditation itself cannot remove them, certain techniques are needed to remove them. So the work of the techniques is just to prepare the ground, is just to prepare the way, the passage. The techniques in themselves are not meditation. If you stop at the technique, you have missed the point.
