This talk is about how meditation can give you lots of happiness and bliss. When we suffer mental pain, we can’t break through it with physical pain. However, the mental pain can be overcome through wisdom. The nature of the mind is to be happy, peaceful, wise and kind. Meditation helps to develop this mind. The development of the mind can give you so many benefits, such as peace, ease, and a lack of stress in life.
