Meditation— it’s for humans

Meditation is a natural state of the human mind—at rest, open, alert. The basic meditation technique predates all religious traditions, though it is used in one way or another by each of them. Undertaken as a steady practice, meditation allows the mind to relax and settle. It encourages our inherent qualities to emerge:  stability, clarity and mental strength. If you’re new to meditation, our Meditation in Everyday Life course is a great place to start a lifelong habit. But first, here’s a brief introduction by meditation master Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
