What is the difference between meditation and realization? Is meditation a process towards realization?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Yes, meditation is a process, and self-realization is the effect. See, you are asking me a question and I am answering you. You are hearing the answer, and you are nodding, saying, ‘Yes’, on the inside. That is realization.
