Is Your Meditation “Good”?

Related imageA good meditation has little or nothing to do with ‘extra-sensory perceptions’ or escaping temporarily from suffering. A walk, a nap, a vacation, or a warm bath can be more effective for such purposes.

If we continue to harbor the same prejudices, the same irritability, and the same indifference toward the suffering of others when we rise from the cushion, it does not matter how many divine lights we see or how many celestial sounds we hear, our meditation is a farce.

If we rise from the cushion with more patience, more love, and more compassion, our meditation has been good.

    your words are much more understandable than most of the teachers you quote. I get much more out of what you have to say personally and you speak at a level that is far less complicated

    Thank You,
