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. Understand the peace and wisdom of letting go of deceptive states of mind. And cultivate minds of patience, compassion and wisdom.
Improve and perfect the minds of compassion and unbiased love by meditating on their causes. By doing so, our wisdom will naturally and effortlessly increase and our mind will experience peace.
Discover the types of minds that destroy our peace and abandon them, then discover the types of minds that are non-deceptive and produce inner peace and meditate and mix our mind with them.
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 and wisdom.
By following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to make our life meaningful and with effort 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
