Ricard: satisfy your hunger

“Meditation is a matter not of theory but of practice, just as it does not satisfy your hunger to read a restaurant menu if you are not going to eat something from it.
.
.
Nevertheless, it is an invaluable help to be able to consult the guidelines for meditation found in the works of the sages of the past.
.
.
These works are treasure troves of instruction that clearly expound the goal and methods of meditation, describe the best way to practice it, and deal with the pitfalls that may await the practitioner.”

.
Meditation/Mindfulness is not an intellectual entity.
.
.
Taking a class or reading a 1000 books does nothing for us.
.
.
We have to sit in silence and face our mind, our demons, our fears, our ego.
