Calm-Abiding Meditation (also known as Shamatha), refers to a state of mind focused, calm, and clear. From the Buddhist perspective, such state of mind is necessary to overcome ignorance in the pursuit of wisdom.

Meditation may offer many benefits with concentration, relaxation, inner peace, and stress reduction in carrying out our daily responsibilities and tasks. Research has found that meditation may help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.
