The Benefits of Meditation
The benefits of training in meditation are:
Through sincerely training in meditation on the teachings given on these courses, you will attain spiritual realizations which lead you to permanent liberation from all the sufferings of this life and countless future lives. There is no greater meaning than this.
Even temporarily, whenever you experience problems, unpleasant feelings, depression or unhappiness you can solve these problems immediately by transforming your mind into peace through your meditation practice. The benefits of meditation are immeasurable.
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the side of the mind.
