WHAT IS MEDITATION?
There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own state of mind – and to change it for the better.
According to Buddhism this is the most important thing we can do, and Buddhism teaches that it is the only real antidote to our own personal suffering, and to the anxieties, fears, hatreds, and general confusions that are commonplace in the human condition.
Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. Buddhist meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a serene way of seeing the true nature of things.
By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being.
With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind.
Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.
