Why do Buddhists meditate?

     "In the context of Buddhism, meditation is focusing our mind on that which brings lasting happiness and then experiencing that happiness. In this way we can understand that the ultimate result of Buddhist meditation is the direct experience of that totality. All accomplished practitioners describe that experience as extremely blissful and express it in a way that is beneficial and meaningful to others."
