I just cannot grasp the essense no matter how hard I concentrate all I reach is a slightly more peacefull state of mind how can this be of use to all sentient beings? Can it be more efficient help if I invest the time and money I spend on retreats on charity to feed the hungry and help the sick?


When your mind sits, then it settles. Please share this experience with others in society. That is plenty. Better than following great idols, to keep making efforts and do what we can already do. Of course, helping those in need is important, but more important is to share your experience.
