Meditation is fundamentally a training of the mind which aims to develop qualities such as selfless love and care, as well as a right understanding of reality. For 2500 years, Buddhism has used meditation to eliminate ignorance and mental toxins, i.e. destructive emotions, which are the root causes of suffering.
Following the path of Buddhism makes full use of all the knowledge and experience acquired by beings who, like the Buddha, have awakened from the sleep of ignorance. However, the knowledge resulting from the contemplative science that Buddhism precisely constitutes is valid for all beings without exception: we all have a spirit, we are all the plaything of various emotions and we all go through multiple sufferings.
Training transforms the mind, masters destructive emotions and dispels suffering. Indeed, the many and profound methods that Buddhism has developed over the centuries can be used by all beings provided they demonstrate enthusiasm and perseverance.
Meditation therefore has a universal value: it would be a shame to neglect the transformative power of our mind.
