In this form of meditation, you simply refocus your awareness on the chosen object of attention each time you notice your mind wandering.
Rather than pursuing random thoughts, you simply let them go.
The intention is not to get involved with the thoughts or to judge them, but simply to be aware of each mental note as it arises.
Through mindfulness meditation, you can see how your thoughts and feelings tend to move in particular patterns.
This could entail following the breath, repeating a single word or mantra, staring at a candle flame, listening to a repetitive gong, or counting beads on a mala.
Since focusing the mind is challenging, a beginner might meditate for only a few minutes and then work up to longer durations.
Many disciplines call for stillness — to a greater or lesser degree, depending on the teacher. For example, a daily meditation practice among Buddhist monks focuses directly on the cultivation of compassion.
The goal of meditation is to focus and quiet your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calm.
It may come as a surprise to learn that you can meditate anywhere and at any time, allowing yourself to access a sense of tranquility and peace no matter what's going on around you.
To put it as an Eastern philosopher may say, the goal of meditation is no goal. In Buddhist philosophy, the ultimate benefit of meditation is liberation of the mind from attachment to things it cannot control, such as external circumstances or strong internal emotions.
The liberated or “enlightened” practitioner no longer needlessly follows desires or clings to experiences, but instead maintains a calm mind and sense of inner harmony.
