Meditation is a holistic discipline during which time the practitioner trains his or her mind in order to realize some benefit. Meditation often involves invoking and cultivating a feeling or internal state, such as compassion, or attending to some focal point, etc. The term can refer to the process of reaching this state, as well as to the state itself. There are hundreds of specific types of meditation. Meditation is a component of many religions, and has been practiced since antiquity, especially by monastics.
