What meditation really is

Meditation is a technic practice by everybody, from buddhist, to student, to athlete, to spiritual practioner and to medical patient. The meditation technic are numerous and the scientific community have studied it and found many benefit to a regular meditation practice. Better attention, better grade for student, increase memory and decrease stress level, are among many of the benefit found in those studies.

But meditation is more than sitting in a lotus position and being aware of our tought. Meditation is a permanent state of consciousness, it is an awarness of every tought, at every moment. It is being in the present moment. In this video, Sogyal Rinpoche, a buddhist monk is explaining, what is really meditation.
