Meditation is neither practicing certain yogic or breathing exercises, nor is it imagination and contemplation by mere closing of eyes, nor does it mean to gaze at some external object, or deep analysis through our limited intellects. According to the authentic scriptures, Dhyan (Meditation) = Dheya (Target) + Dhyata (Observer) Dhyata (Observer): We are the Observer, with our ever hovering mind. We need such a stand point, where mind sticks to procure eternal peace and happiness. Dheya (Target): God is that eternal, never changing Target where mind rests in peace. Dhyaan (Meditation): Thus, it is a process of union of the Observer with the Target.
