At times I am often asked about the nature of meditation.

In response, I simply direct them to BuddhaNet’s advice on Meditation:

The most important feature of meditation is not technique, but the way of being, the spirit, which is called the “posture”, a posture which is not so much physical, but more to do with spirit or attitude.

It is well to recognize that when you start on a meditation practice, you are entering a totally different dimension of reality. Normally in life we put a great deal of effort into achieving things, and there is a lot of struggle involved, whereas meditation is just the opposite, it is a break from how we normally operate.

The BuddhaNet has excellent articles for all levels, from beginner to advanced.
