Perfect Meditation

May 10, 2012

Meditation practice is not a way of entering into a manufactured state of tranquillity or equanimity. Rather, it is samyak samadhi, the perfect meditation, the perfect absorption. Perfection in this case has no allegiance toward confusion or enlightenment. That's why it is perfect. When we have no allegiance towards confusion or enlightenment, we free ourselves from any dogma, any bondage. A sense of ultimate relaxation begins to occur.

From "Selected Writings" in The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa, Volume Three, page 540.

    to be honest i am a meidtator myself and i stopped doing it after a while and i felt a big difference and i had been through a rough time this year and i started doing it again and now that i am i feel a lot better physically and mentally i dont belive you should force people to do it but help them to realise its good for you and it is thier choice so im only 14 but ive learnt a lot through meditation and spiritulism and budah and im a different person a lot calmer and mentally more mature.
