The articles tackles the relation between violence and meditation from multiple number of perspectives, recalling also to Dalai Lama’s message after the Paris Attacks of November 2015, when the Tibetan spiritual leader have even claimed that humanity bears part of the responsibility for the emergence of global terrorism.
“Let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments”, were the Dalai Lama’s words after the hazardous event in Paris when more than hundreds of people were killed, and which caused a chain of reaction and viral usage of the #PrayforParis hashtag over the social media.
The article proceeds with questions that will make readers think on the relations between human evolution, progress, learning how to do meditation and being prone to violence, “Would all unrest in the world stop then, if just each and everyone would sit down for 10 minutes per day to do some meditation exercises; close their eyes and seek the answers that are locked within their heart and mind?” are some of those questions.
Further on, the article highlights some good practices of free meditation exercises – for instance where schools are replacing detention with meditation, teaching kids how to do meditation. That resembles a positive practice with the ability to reinvent the educational system, hence also prevent development of violent behavior among young people at a very early age. That is further supported with other studies that reveal also other benefits from doing meditation exercises. Readers can inform more about it by going through the full piece at MeditationTalks.
There is a personal story behind the launch of MeditationTalks and why the emerging of such website and community. Dominique Ng, the creator of MeditationTalks in discussions of how this community for meditation practitioners was launched, shared: “I have been doing meditation exercises when I was a child growing in Vietnam without really being aware of what I was exactly doing, or if I was doing it right. I was raised in a Buddhist family, so naturally meditation was part of my daily life. I have grown to understand what meditation really means over the years, however a recent divorce was a huge catalyst for me to dig deeper into the meditation power, as I was looking for remedies to ease the pain, grieve and consequently to heal my heart and soul.”
