Role of Meditation 

what is the purpose of meditation? To be able to sit for an hour or days without a thought? 

No! 

It is to become an honest friend with our ourselves, our own mind, to see our world as it really is.

We kindly accept and become familiar with our stupidity, our dullness, stubbornness, our craving and fear. Only by being truthful with ourselves do we make progress.

It is how we love ourselves.
