Meditation is an integral part of the Buddhist path. It is a powerful method to calm and focus the mind, thereby bringing deep inner peace and a sense of physical and mental well-being. It is also a method for bringing about a change in attitude and so develop a more positive way of living.
Some people meditate simply to relax, others wish to explore further the mind's potential. Whatever the inclination, meditation has something to offer to everyone, whether they wish to follow the Buddhist path or not. It is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves in this very hectic world.
