Meditation (dhyan) is a spiritual practice performed for mental, physical and emotional well-being. When you meditate on an object, mantra or a guru your mind becomes still because you are making the mind concentrate on one thing. There are various physical benefits of meditation but scientifically the purpose behind meditation is to strengthen the mind. Experts say that meditation results in peace and happiness. But does that remain in times of suffering?
You feel cool when you are sitting next to a block of ice, but what happens as soon as you move away? You return to the same state in which you were before, experiencing warmth. Similarly, when you meditate you get temporary relief. However, you cannot get permanent happiness from relative meditation. So what can we do to experience permanent peace and happiness?
The answer is Real meditation, which can only be attained from the Gnani Purush.
