Why Meditate?

Why Meditate? | innovation and diversity | Scoop.it

French monk (and former scientist in cell genetics) Matthieu Ricard speaks about science, meditation, and his title as 'the happiest man in the world.'

 

"By activating some areas of the brain, you could possibly generate a sensation of intense pleasure for a while, but that’s not going to last forever. That’s definitely not happiness. It is just a temporary gimmick. Genuine happiness is a state related to wisdom, to being attuned to reality, and to freedom from mental toxins (hatred, craving, and the like). Pleasure by itself has no reason to engender freedom from ignorance, dualistic clinging, and distortion of reality (true causes of suffering). There is nothing wrong with pleasure in itself, but it does not have much to do with happiness."

True, very true. Indian Doctrines says one to go beyond body, mind and soul (incarnated) and be the REAL SELF. As one progresses i this path, one experiences constant bliss and deep peace throughout the day. By meditating, one can be neutral and free from any bondage.

Meditation Is

Being At Peace With What Is

And

Transcending What IS
