In this particular topic has been discussed on the fundamental doctrine of the Buddha, the origin and development of Buddhist meditation and how to practice in our everyday life which has been mentioned in the P?li Tipitaka. The aim of this research is to find a universal solution of suffering; one that makes one impervious to the vicissitudes of life. Buddhist meditation is to purify the mind. It cleanses the thought process of what can be called psychic irritants, things like greed, hatred and jealousy, things that keep you snarled up in emotional bondage. It brings the mind to a state of tranquility and awareness, a state of concentration and insight.It is directed to cultivating the mind and faculties so that one can grain the natural unwholesome tendencies and attain freedom from the three unwholesome roots of greed (lobha), hatred (dosa) and delusion (moha) and to attain the Highest Peace (Nibbana).
