Meditation can serve as a method to familiarize ourselves with our body and mind. Through frequent training in concentration, mindfulness, and equanimity, we can gradually improve our internal and external health. This practice can also increase our capacity to cultivate virtuous states of mind such as compassion, wisdom, and love while helping us to maintain them throughout our daily life.
