Many people are developing an interest in Buddhism and meditation these days, in part because of it’s user friendly and practical approach to solving our daily problems. Buddhism teaches us to take responsibility for ourselves, our actions, and the consequences of our actions.
Through meditation we can follow the same path of inner transformation that Buddha followed and eventually attain a lasting inner peace and real power to benefit other living beings.
