"Meditation is mind’s gift to itself" - Lama Ole Nydahl
Buddhist meditation consists of two aspects, first, one calms and focuses the mind by concentrating on the breath or an object. Then one turns this concentration towards becoming aware of the mind’s enlightened qualities. These moments of insight go beyond concepts and stiff ideas. The ultimate aim of Buddhist meditation is to become aware of the nature of mind. When one can hold this awareness permanently, resting naturally in mind’s true nature, this is called enlightenment.
