Meditation is a way to bring our mind home.
How can we deal with ourselves and be stable like a mountain, especially when strong emotions like anger and jealousy come up?
How can we learn to get along with ourselves, to just be with ourselves?
How can we clear our mind when we have too many thoughts?
We are often restless and distracted. As a result we get lost in our thoughts and emotions.
From a Buddhist point of view, meditation is a way to bring the mind home and to understand the mind, its thoughts, and its emotions in a better way.
