what is meditation?
Meditation is an ancient art which is being increasingly practised in these modern times. More and more people are turning to meditation to increase their inner peace, good health and wellbeing.
The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. Since inner peace is the source of all happiness, we can see how important meditation is.
If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.
If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.
