Meditation is a form of mental exercise designed to quiet the mind and senses to the point of channeling all the spirit energy into one powerful beam like that of a laser.
Meditation is experimental as well as experiential. Not all methods work for everyone…One has to find a methods which suits his / her personality. This is where the Guru helps the most.
The ultimate aim of all meditation methods is the same. In Hinduism..its called Samadhi…In buddhism its called Mahanirvana. Different experiences are due to different practices and past experiences.
No ‘personality’ called ‘God’ can be found in any enlightened experiences. Both Hinduism and Buddhism refers to the formless ‘that’. Hindus call it the Nirguna Brahman or Shiva (Consciousness) while Buddhist call it ‘Existence’ or ‘That which is’ ..For Samadhi …all forms will be dropped….Both agree…that the ultimate is something that which cannot be created. Temptations will be many…but one has to walk strong…and dedicatedly…with Samadhi in mind.
