Meditation can be characterised as an inner active discipline that develops attention regulation. In a nutshell, meditation becomes effortless mindful attentiveness in which one is captured, or 'in the zone' or 'flow', in which the activity or point of attentiveness itself begins to unfurl and unveil.

Another way to characterise meditation is through taking Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, wherein the state of Dhyana reflects what we often intend by 'meditation': sustained concentrated effortlessness and unshakable mindful presence.

From my pespective, meditation involves the whole processes as well as the states referred to in the Sutras as Samyama, which includes Dharana Concentration, Dhyana Meditation and Samadhi Absorbtion. The practice grounded in the previous five limbs.
