Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices including techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or a life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.), or develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentration to achieve indestructible sense of well-being for its practitioner.
The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts. Meditation in antiquity was practiced as a component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind. Meditation in a non-religious context is often used to clear the mind, ease health issues such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. It may be done sitting, or actively. For example, Buddhist monks involve active meditation awareness in their day-to-day activities as a form of mind-training, and may use prayer beads or other ritual objects as reminders.
Meditation may involve generating specific emotions for self-analysis or cultivating a particular mental response to various phenomena, such as compassion. The term "meditation" can refer to the state, practices, or the techniques employed to cultivate the state. Meditation may involve repeating a mantra (which may be tailored to the individual) with eyes closed. Meditation has a calming effect and may direct awareness inward to a state of pure awareness, described as "being awake inside without being aware of anything except awareness itself." In brief, there are dozens of specific styles of meditation practice, and many different types of activity commonly referred to as meditative practices.
