Meditation refers to a variety of mental exercises which have their origin in ancient times and became increasingly popular in the western world over the last decades. While meditating, we practice different kinds of focus to achieve a more mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. Meditative practices were developed as part of the path towards enlightenment, self-realisation and the end of suffering. There are various types of meditation, such as focused attention, or mindfulness meditation, which is the most widely studied form of meditation in modern science. Metta or loving-kindness meditation is another example of focused attention. Other forms of meditation are the chanting of mantras or transcendental meditation.

Kundalini meditation is a form of meditative practice which deals with a divine form of energy which, according to people of Hindu faith, is known as a Shakti. In Hindu belief, Kundalini is a feminine Shakti that resides in the base of the spine. Various tantric exercises are able to cultivate this energy in the body, including, most notably, meditation. To most devout Hindus, meditating in such a way that the Kundalini energy is released means invoking the most powerful divine being, Adi Parashakti, along with the goddesses, Kubjika and Bhairavi. Along with certain other practices, such as pranayama breathing, yoga and the chanting of mantra, so-called Kundalini awakenings are supposed to occur when people meditate. According to those who undertake Kundalini meditation successfully, there is a physical sensation that occurs in the spine, which is said to feel like electricity or a similar energy form running through it.
