Paramhansa Yogananda defined meditation as "deep concentration on God or one of His aspects." In order to achieve this, we need to bring the consciousness to one-pointed attention at the spiritual eye.

How can you concentrate on something which is not perceivable?

As God is abstract and not perceivable, one cannot really concentrate on God. Moreover, limiting meditation to attention at the "spiritual eye" only (God knows what he means by that) is I find Yogananda's definition misleading and bogus (as some other issues he promoted).

Meditation is much more than that, it is not concentration and its basic issue is to go beyond the mind, no God, no spiritual eye and no other concept, just go beyond thoughts and feelings, go beyond the "I".
