Modern life is complex and disordered; we need
the power of meditative concentration to calm our
restless minds and bodies. The wave of industrialization that has swept across the globe since the twentieth century has quickened the pace of life, and increased production has stimulated people’s desire for
enjoyment. With technology people are now frenetically engaged in making a living all the time and have
forgotten to stop for awhile and look at themselves.
The competitiveness of life has made the sense of
alienation between people more and more severe;
and excessive sensual enjoyment has anesthetized
the spirit. The words “nothingness” and “loss” are
now commonplace in our modern era. Meditation is
truly the best medicine to mend the abuses of our times.
Meditation by Venerable Yung Dong, is an event co-organised by BLIAWA and Fo Guang Shan WA, in order to give an excellent opportunity for public to join us in search of tranquility in our busy lives.
