What is Meditation?

Describing meditation isn’t easy, as it differs across regions and religions. In essence, it involves intentionally directing your attention to a single point. This point can be a thought, your body’s movements, a candle flame, your breath, a word, a phrase (mantra), or even nothing at all.

Meditation can involve focusing on a single object or simply embracing the emptiness and silence. The meditation techniques may be wildly different, but they all have one thing in common; focus.
