In Yoga meditation refers to the seventh of the eight limbs of Yoga in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, a step called Dhyāna in Sanskrit which means a state of liberation. Meditation involves concentration and relaxation as well as mindfulness based practices. Concentration can be achieved by different ways too. It is important to say that concentration is not meditation, however to meditate we do need concentration and attention. Some focal points to enhance concentration are:

  • Sound:            Repeating a mantra, phrase or other sound.
  • Visualizing:       Picturing an object with eyes closed, such as a lotus flower or the energy points in the body (chakras).
  • Gazing:            Looking at an actual object with eyes open. Candles, flowers or pictures are common objects used in gazing.
  • Breathing:       Observing the breath and what it feels like – the sensations – as it travels in and out of the body and the pauses in between

In Taoism meditation refers to the traditional meditative practices associated with the Chinese philosophy and spiritual practices of Taoism, including concentration, mindfulness, contemplation, and visualization which is very similar to yoga tradition and philosophy too whereas in Buddhism meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Buddhist meditation practices, as well as Yoga and Qi Gong, incorporate techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life
