A very good definition of meditation to start with is this : Meditation is a state of concentrated focus of your mind.

Meditation consists of turning your attention inwards and taking a break from the outward distractions, to do meditation means to have a single point of reference, a single point of focus and the very simple definition of meditation is that instead of having the outward focus is to have the focus within focus in your mind.
Meditation is very popular in eastern religions, but it is getting very popular in the west and all over the world. Why is that ? It is pretty obvious that people are doing meditation because of only one reason and that reason is that they benefit from it, that they are getting an experience.

Without concentration there cannot be meditation, because the essence of meditation is the concentration of your mind be it on a mantra, be it on an objects or any other form of meditation that you prefer. So, like any other form of practice in life, where you want to get benefit, the same goes for meditation. If you spend a time and the effort on the discipline of concentrating on the meditation that you prefer, you will have benefits and the benefits will be great, because what is the ultimate benefit of meditation ?
