     When we try to define anything, that is try to put it in words, we miss its essence. We are left with its dry shell.
    This what happens to meditation.
    We can neither meditate nor define it.
    Meditation/Dhyan happens when we become like a statue for a while, doing nothing, not even observing.
    We then come to realise what is happening, why is it happening, who is making it happen. All this is so very personal. All generalisation are a crude mockery.
    All that I am saying may be complete nonsense.
