Many of us continue to think of meditation as an activity solely involving our minds. Or perhaps we jump immediately to the ideas of chanting and mantra repetition, and imagine robed monks sitting atop a mountain.
Meditation is actually a variety of techniques or activities in which we engage our minds and on which we focus our attention. As we are beginning to see, there are many roads that can lead us to the same place. Therefore, the underlying principles of the posture of meditation are universal in their application whether you practice Theravadan mindfulness, Christian contemplation, or Hindu mysticism, meditation and its postures are for all seekers.
