The Heart-Essence of Buddhist Meditation
Meditation, simply defined, is a way of being aware. It is the happy marriage of doing and being. It lifts the fog of our ordinary lives to reveal what is hidden; it loosens the knot of self-centeredness and opens the heart; it moves us beyond mere concepts to allow for a direct experience of reality.
- Lama Surya Das, "The Heart-Essence of Buddhist Meditation"
