These days we have access to vast reservoirs of information from many cultures. We can choose over the best that a wide variety of traditions bring to the table. Individuals have sometimes asked me why I picked a spiritual practice originating in a society other than my own. Because something originates in another country does not mean it is unsuitable for us. The computer Science was initially developed in America, but no one suggests that computers are not useful somewhere else. Meditation originated in India and has been practiced for thousands of years in Asia, yet individuals from all backgrounds can experience its benefits.
So let us close our eyes and open our minds, and accept that meditation practice involves an effort. If you undertake this wonderful practice with sincerity, I am sure you will long thank the day that you did.
