The Benefits of Meditation

Just as a bird cannot fly if it has stones tied to its legs, so we cannot make progress on the spiritual path if we are tightly tied down by the chains of attachment, anger and ignorance. Understand the peace and wisdom of letting go of deceptive states of mind, letting go of our anger and dissatisfaction.  And cultivate minds of patience, compassion and wisdom.

Improve and perfect the minds that understand the nature of impermanent phenomena, how cause and effect function to bring about future pain or happiness, come to know how we create our own suffering and how to stop it, how we can love without attachment, develop compassion for those who cannot love, and develop wisdom through our own inner experience.  By following the instructions of training the mind, our wisdom will naturally and effortlessly increase and our mind will experience the inner peace that we long for.

Meditation creates an inner space and lucidity that increases our experience of the beauty of concentration.  From this concentration and good heart arises the inner wealth of clarity, stillness and wisdom.

By following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to make our life meaningful and with effort we can attain full enlightenment.

The Power of Meditation

Meditating can help you:

  • Experience an inner calm and relax your body and mind
  • Deal with challenges in a positive way
  • Develop inner wisdom that leads to enlightenment
