What is mediation? Why is it necessary? How to master the art?
Meditation is nothing but concentration without distraction. It is an exercise whereby we try and control our mind and thoughts at one place and concentrate on just one thing forgetting about everything else. Sounds simple! But Nah!…..its actually the most difficult thing to achieve. Human mind is so complex that even when one is asleep, a series of thoughts keep floating around which may include your past, present or future imagination.
It is necessary to be able to control mind, to be able to realise self. Just as for extraction of any pure form, the impurities and external materials are required to be removed (through the process called extraction and refining), is mediation necessary to realise our true form or self or the purest form of living being viz. its soul.
