On the assumption that there's still some interest in pursuing the topic of meditation and how it relates to indian music, I would like to suggest that a good place to start would be with taking a look at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditation

for some definition of key terms and typologies. What becomes very clear from this article is that there's a wide variety of forms and functions of meditation and very many different approaches and school of thoughts about it.

One weakness of this article is that there's very little about the connection between meditation and music.

Another meditative piece is one that is performed by Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, namely--- Raag Shree. I have a copy:"The Genius of Pandit Nikhil Banerjee/ Live Concert Series 2."
