About 2,500 years ago, Prince Siddhartha left his royal palace to seek insight into human suffering and the mystery of life. He was in his late 20s and after six years of working with different teachers and practices, he attained “enlightenment”. His search began when he began to examine the nature of life, in the face of the “realities” of ageing, sickness and death.
Pretty early in life, we form a view of life, and consciously or unconsciously, we base our actions and relationships on these beliefs. Life brings us experiences and encounters that may cause us to question our basic approach. Sometimes an event might shatter our firmly-held beliefs, or shake our trust, or turn our world upside down. Once we begin to question our assumptions, we might not find answers readily available, or those that satisfy us.
One approach in this quest is to look deeper at our experiences for insights and answers. Mediation practice is a great tool to begin this process. Using a well-tested and tried method used by thousands of people to deepen their awareness, we too can explore the world of our minds, our experiences, our beliefs.
The Buddha urged his followers not to follow his or any teachings with blind faith, but to always test them against the truth of their own experience. It is in this spirit that we will explore meditation and Buddhism.
While one can pursue meditation for many other benefits, like stress relief, anger management, improved focus, increased flexibility, spacious and relaxed state of mind, one can also consider the practice of meditation itself to be the “fruit” of meditation.
