A Guide to seated Meditation
Just as a puppy can be trained to follow you and sit when you tell it, the mind can also be trained. But discipline and commitment are needed. Dogs don’t magically become well behaved, and neither do minds. Just as training a puppy takes practice and can be a lot of work, so training the mind is not always easy and the commitment to the training process is long-term. How- ever, the benefits of taking control of the mind will affect every aspect of your life.
