“Let me tell you what meditation actually is and what it can do for you. The ancient yoga texts of India describe the heart as a mirror, and that mirror of the heart can reveal who we really are. Over the years and even throughout different lifetimes, that mirror accumulates dust in the form of ego, envy, anger, hypocrisy. Practicing meditation literally wipes that mirror clean! It purifies our heart.” – Sivarama Swami
