Meditation is a form of mental hygiene that promotes tranquillity and prepares the mind for the attainment of Yoga’s supreme goal of intuitive enlightenment, the union with the Divine.
Meditation is a general term that refers to the concentrative methods of quietening and opening the mind to focus on the object of contemplation and become one with it. It prepares the mind for the attainment of the higher states of consciousness.
In Raja Yoga this is achieved through the practice of Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dyana (contemplation) and Samadhi (a blissfully super conscious state) in which you become one with the object of your meditation.
