Meditation is an end in itself

The end of meditation is meditation itself. The search for something through and beyond meditation is end-gaining; and that which is gained is again lost. Seeking a result is the continuation of self-projection; result, however lofty, is the projection of desire. Meditation as a means to arrive, to gain, to discover, only gives strength to the meditator. The meditator is the meditation; meditation is the understanding of the meditator. - J.Krishnamurti Commentaries on Living Series I Chapter 61 The Desire for Bliss

Additional Comments - The meditator as referred to here is the sense of ego consciousness as separate from the meditation itself (i.e. "I am meditating").
