The Brief: Baby Yoda meditating memes convey relaxation and concentration with an image from season 2 of The Mandalorian.
Season 2, episode 6 of The Mandalorian on Disney+ includes a scene where The Child (Baby Yoda) meditates, which inspired a new meme format. Baby Yoda meditating memes started circulating on Imgur and Reddit on December 7 after the episode became available for streaming. These memes use a screenshot of Baby Yoda seated in a classic meditation position but often aren’t directly about meditating. Instead, they portray people coming to realizations, contemplating big ideas, and feeling relaxed or relieved.
