What is meditation?
Meditation is all about concentrating on a single focus. That focus may be on an object or chosen deity’s image. When concentration becomes continuous it is called meditation and when the meditator and object of meditation become one it is called Samadhi. This is the main motive of the meditation as told in Yoga.
Why we should meditate?
Meditation is just focusing of attention on a thing, object, thought or deity continuously for some time. The purpose of meditation is to control thoughts, which continuously harass and trouble us. It is in the nature of our subconscious mind that it dwells either on bygone past or wanders in to future. It never stays in present, which is really a moment to enjoy ! Past never comes back and future comes only in the form of now and here! The present moment!
If you can’t enjoy the present moment you can never enjoy future, because future comes as present moment only.
