Why Meditate?   EgLJevcyf6Ix6sTiA f0jl72eJkfbmt4t8yenImKBV9ip2J1EIeUzA9paTSgKmv

One of the main pursuits of Buddhism is to bridge the gap between the way things appear and the way things are. That approach does not come just from a curiosity to investigate phenomena. It arises from the understanding that an incorrect perception of reality inevitably leads to suffering. Grasping to solid reality and to the notion of an independent self in particular engenders a host of afflictive mental states and afflictive emotions that are the primary cause of mind-made sufferings.
