Shamatha means calm-abiding in Tibetan. Shamatha meditation is the process of calming the mind to allow deeper awareness to come forward. This meditation involves holding the correct physical posture while focusing the mind on the sensation of breathing. Variations of this meditation are done in almost every other Buddhist tradition.
