Realising the emptiness within and seeing the same emptiness in the others too. This will drop all cravings and aversions associated with events, people and objects. This will help to maintain the poise within. Maintaining peace within in any favourable or unfavorable situation is the greatest goal of Meditation. Highest of Meditation is to realise that you are pervaded through the whole cosmos including everything. Meditation makes you go beyond death. You come to know that you are eternal and powerhouse of infinite potential.
