Concentration is the nature of a peaceful mind. When our mind is concentrated it is relaxed, peaceful, alert and we feel happy.

When meditating, the degree to which we can concentrate determines the effectiveness of our meditations. Therefore, in meditation, as in everyday life, the ability to overcome distractions is very important.
