Samadhi is the highest level of meditation, there's not one specific single practice to just to get you into Samadhi state also there's different types of Samadhi which you can experience depending on the meditation method,

I recommend this book: The science of yoga by  I. K. Taimni

All you need to know about Yoga sutras and Samadhi you'll find in this book. Very detailed book which you'll understand the whole procedure that eventually will lead you to this state of consciousness.

@Adodd silent and darkness meditation peactices and living in silence and darkness can be very helpful. At the final level of samadhi is realization of your “birth” is just a process of thoughts, which mean is realization of “you” or “i” have never born. Birth was just naming, labeling and putting meaning on the thoughts, including as saying “thought” to thoughts.

@Adodd Whoa, first of all "You" don't obtain samadhi. Samadhi obtains you. What you can do is to set the right conditions for samadhi to happen. But even then it's a hit or miss thing that everything comes into perfect alignment -then there is samadhi.

Focus on the inhale and exhale during meditation. Don't resist thoughts but don't entertain them either... always return to focusing on the breath.

@Adodd I'd say just keep meditating. 

At first you'll experience extremely vivid moments with the eyes closed,  moments so vivid that something clearly has changed but you cant put your finger on what it is (you'll know for sure when you experience it trust me). 

Then over time, over months/years, this vivid experience will begin occurring with the eyes open. 

These states are just samadhi states though, not to be confused with enlightenment/liberation.

@Adodd I recommend "The Mind Illuminated" techniques for increasing concentration and mindfulness, but also paradoxically being able to drop this into an Adyashanti style surrender/do nothing meditation will allow the "absorbtion" aspect of Samadhi to grow as well, because once the "meditator" drops from the experience you can really lose yourself and go deep. Hope that helps though since I've only experienced full blown Samadhi on LSD.
