Meditation is a way of transforming the mind.
It is a state of deep peace, when the mind is still.
It is effortless awareness.
Often the breath is the focus of attention.
We become aware of the continuous stream of thoughts in our mind as simply thoughts – we don’t engage with them.
Meditation helps us to wake up to being in the here-and-now, letting go of past memories and future fantasies.
Meditation is part of all the religions of the world – but you don’t have to be religious to meditate.
Meditation allows us to find peace and happiness.
The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and discomfort.
