I am amazed at the discipline required for meditation. The monks at Bodh Gaya seemed to ease into a meditative state with little difficulty. I saw one saffron dressed monk in Lotus position that was dead still in meditation for over an hour. I have tried to meditate but my monkey mind distracts me within a few moments of focusing on my breathing. my mind bounces from thought to thought only to be distracted by a thousand other shiny penny thoughts seeking attention.
