I was inspired to start meditating regularly after joining a meditation-focused Sangha four years ago. Previously, I had only studied and practiced Buddhism from a wisdom- and ethics-foundation, but adding meditative concentration has had a profoundly transformative impact on my life. This transformation in my understanding of the mind motivates me to continue meditating, to see what else there is to discover.
