By Swami Harshananda
Sometimes transliterated as: Nididhyasana, NididhyAsana, Nididhyaasana
Nidhidhyāsana is the term specially used in Vedānta to signify meditation. It has been defined as the stream of ideas same as Brahman. It excludes all the other ideas like those of the body. Ultimately it leads to samādhi or total absorption in Brahman.
