Dhyāna ध्यान or Jhāna झान in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism means meditation which is “a deeper awareness of oneness which is inclusive of perception of body, mind, senses and surroundings, yet remaining unidentified with it”. Dhyana is taken up after preceding exercises, and leads to samadhi and self-knowledge, separating māyā from reality to help attain the ultimate goal of moksha.
