“Why? Simple. Because you are human. Just because of the simple fact that you are human, you find yourself heir to an inherent unsatisfactoriness in life that simply will not go away.”
~ Bhante Gunaratana, from “Mindfulness in Plain English.”
In the same way that yoga asanas tone and purify the body, meditation cleanses the mind. Meditation helps us to penetrate our habits of grasping, rejecting and ignoring, in order to reveal a completely different way of regarding and responding to the world around us. Meditation helps free us from continually chasing after fleeting pleasures or running away from hardship. We train ourselves to be steadfast and calm, to ride the waves as they come.
