What is meditation?

What is it?

Meditation is the seventh state, or limb, of yoga – Dhyana. It is the attempt to reach pure consciousness.

To meditate, you need to calm the mind and focus on a specific object or word. For example, you may have heard of people saying, “Om” continuously during meditation. Your eyes can be open or closed. The important thing to remember is that your goal is to reach that state of “pure consciousness” when you meditate.
