The Honorable Dalai Lama posts on his facebook on March 26, 2013, an explanation of the difference between act of praying and the art of meditation as daily practice for inner peace. This explanation, by no means, is saying don’t pray if this is part of your life. What the Honorable Dalai Lama brings to light is that we all must have an inner calmness to forge ahead in our efforts to have a balanced and peaceful existence. Mediation, as I have mentioned in earlier blogs, helps me with my decision making process, as a result, my response to daily issues are much more well thought out and much more concrete than when I do not meditate.
After reading the Honorable Dalai Lama’s post, I have a better understanding of the difference between praying and meditation. In his post, the Honorable Dalai Lama say’s, “Whether we consider the individual, family, local, national or international level, peace must arise from inner peace. For example, making prayers for peace while continuing to harbor anger is futile. Training the mind and overcoming your anger is much more effective than mere prayer. Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that.”
