Why Meditate

I have found that the Hindu tradition provides a very good foundation in the skills of stillness which this article addresses. Buddhism takes Hinduism another step and adds compassion as an element toward recognizing our oneness in this journey. Jesus went even further toward this oneness with the ideas of love but he did not emphasis the value of stillness or what he called “watching” enough to his followers and hence they do not promote this most important FIRST step in the process. I find that no western traditions promote this basic skill enough, although they do talk about it.

The Perfect Dharma would be melding of the eastern and western traditions would be a melding of the skills of watching (peace of the eastern traditions) with the power and passion of the western tradition.
