Buddha's Definition Of Meditation

Gautama Buddha was once asked by a student,

What is meditation?

The founder of Zen said, “Halt!"

He continued, “If it halts, then that is meditation"

The master further clarified, “The thought process of the mind does not stop. If it halts, then that is meditation"

Meditation is thus a thought-free state of pure awareness.
