Meditation is the process of quieting the mind in order to spend time in thought for relaxation or religious/spiritual purposes. The goal is to attain an inner state of awareness and intensify personal and spiritual growth. In practice, meditation involves concentrated focus on something such as a sound, image or feeling.
In Kundalini yoga, the practice of meditation and chanting helps to raise kundalini energy within the body, and is usually completed after warming up the body and spine with an asana practice. When the state of sakala pramatribhava is reached through meditation, yogis are going deeper into meditation while also still being aware of the world around them.
