Dylan has made a number of BBC iWonder guides, designed to give people access to content in a new and more interactive way, to deepen understanding and challenge preconceptions. This is one of 3 films on the question ‘Why do Buddhists meditate?’

The films explore the role of religion in meditation and the benefits of meditation for religious and non-religious people alike. We look at how to meditate step by step and hear the story of how the Buddha used meditation to find enlightenment.

Presented by Bettany Hughes.
