An ordinary person is always thinking of something in his head. It is called habitual thinking.
When a person says “oh, this is heaven” while soaking in a hot spa, his habitual thinking, or mind chatter gets to slightly quiet down. Then, what will happen if such thinking completely disappears from the head?
The answer is the state these capybaras are in, namely, samadhi or the state of total bliss.
Meditation is practiced to keep this state of mind immovable.
