There’s so much confusion about what meditation really is. Beginners have to clarify and understand the truth, lest their efforts at meditation be in vain.

It’s not about thinking of the future or the past; it’s about being in the moment. This intro to meditation clarifies a lot of things about meditation in a simple yet powerful manner; it’s a must-watch for beginners who have hesitations about what meditation requires of them: to let go.
