Meditation Needs Morality
If you are not leading a morally upright life, you cannot expect to sit down on a little pillow and find yourself secluded from sense desires, secluded from unwholesome states of mind. If there is not sufficient morality, there is too much to desire, too much hate or fear, too much to worry about.
- Leigh Brasington, "A Mind Pure, Concentrated, and Bright"
