What is Meditation?
The benefits of meditation are increasingly recognized on many levels. Whether it's emotional, psychological, or even reducing health problems, more and more people are turning to meditation to improve their lives. But what about meditation really ? Is it just a method of self-emptying or a technique to calm tensions, or is it much more than only that ?
The meaning of meditation
" Meditation " (gom in Tibetan language) derives etymologically from the word khom in the same language, which means "to become familiar". All the Buddha's teachings are for meditation, which is itself of two categories: concentration and analysis. Concentration meditation aims at focusing the mind, which itself allows the stable and clear dwelling on a chosen meditation object. His practice allows the attainment of mental calm, which is the peaceful dwelling of the mind combined with total maneuverability of the mind and a state of great physical and mental well-being. Analytical meditation, meanwhile, involves a movement of the mind, through the use of different logical reasoning to eliminate the false perceptions and understandings that are the roots of delusions and suffering. It increases understanding or a higher vision.
Tenzin Gawa (JASON SIMARD) - Speaker
Tenzin Gawa is the principal teacher of the Paramita Center in Montreal who took monk vows in 2010 from the Tibetan Master Geshe Dawa in India and received the monastic ordination from H.H. Dalai Lama in 2014 and complete ordination in February 2018 in Dharamsala, always with His Holiness. Since 2000, Jason has been interested in teaching of the Buddha and met his first teacher, the Tibetan Buddhist Master Lama Samten, in 2002. Until 2006, Jason accompanies Lama Samten in his classes, lectures, etc. wherever he goes and studies Tibetan Buddhist philosophy with him.
*Jason teaches and explains in a simple, clear and humorous way that everyone appreciates a lot, beginners as well as advanced practionners. The important thing, however, is to well understand in order to develop the positive fire of our motivation, because our project of finding peace of mind and inner happiness is something precious to all of us !
