In a pellucid ocean,Bubbles arise and dissolve again.Just so, thoughts are noDifferent from ultimate reality,So don't find fault; remain at ease.Whatever arises, whatever occurs,Don't grasp-release it on the spot.Appearances, sounds, and objects Are all one's own mind;There's nothing except mind.
~Buddha from the Dhammapada

"In the West, the word meditation means a concentrated state of mind in serious reflection. The Latin root of the word meditation, mederi, means "to heal." It is an effort to heal afflictions of the mind, the hurt ego, by trying to understand the cause of the problem and finding a way to solve it, that is, by knowing what counter-measures to take. To meditate thus, is to deepen a state of understanding"
~Sri Swami Shivapremananda

I do not wish to convert people from one organized religion to another; I have no interest in any of these organised religions. My interest is in Dhamma - the truth, the Teachings of all Enlightened ones. If at all there is any conversion, it should be from misery to happiness, from defilement to purity, from bondage to liberation, from ignorance to enlightenment.

The Dhamma can stand the test of those who are
anxious to do so. They can know for themselves what the benefits are.
