    I beg to differ. Any activity that can improve your overall well-being can be considered as a sport. A sport is basically a recreational activity that can boost your physical and mental hygiene as well. If chess is a sport that develops your mind, then meditation is a sport too - one that improves your physical, mental, and spiritual factors.

    Have not heard or read yet that meditation is considered as a sports. I also think that it is not a sports cause what will be the rules if ever. :P

    Meditation is not a physical sport. It was a discipline to inhibit one's whole being to be better and well.

    Don't know about spending energy. Chess is considered a sport, and you don't spend energy there at all. Physical energy, that is. I've always wondered about the definition of sports because of the games like chess.

    I think it is a form of relaxation and not sports where you need to exert energy. Both good for your body though.

    Yes, I'm no authority on the matter but from my perspective I'd call it an activity, not a sport as such.

    I'd call it an activity more than a sport.

    Well, I don't know what is the definition, but in every sport you are active with your body and you have some rules, and some goal, and you can compete with someone. In meditation you don't have rules, you don't compete, your body is still so No - I don't think it can be called a sport

    Well, I wouldn't consider it sport, because you don't spend your energy, infact you receive the energy when you meditate.
