Meditations

Why Meditate?

We meditate to become familiar with our minds.The goal is not to be blissful and peaceful and make your mind blank. This is a mistaken view, and in opposition of the nature of your mind.The idea is to get to know your mind. With all its thoughts, and all its emotional ups and downs. Get to know it intimately. And rest in naked awareness.– Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
