1. What is Meditation?
Meditation or Dhyanam is a process of single point concentration. As a whole meditation is a phenomenon in which you know everything by sitting at a place and letting your soul wander at its will. There are many ways of meditating such as breathing exercise, chanting a particular mantra and visualisation.
There is a special kind called chakra meditation in which the seeker visualises Shat Chakras in the body namely Muladhara or Base Chakra, Svadhisthtana or Sacral Chakra, Manipuraka or Solar Plexus Chakra, Anahata or Heart Chakra, Vishuddha or Throat Chakra, Agna or Third Eye Chakra and Sahasrara or Crown Chakra. But the most famous is to concentrate on the breathing.
