Meditation

Meditation is the practice of focusing attention, often formalized into a specific routine.

Meditation is usually recognized as a component of Eastern religions, originating in Vedic Hinduism, but it also developed independently in Sufism.

Meditation can also be used for personal development in a non-religious context, such as the exercises of Hatha yoga.
