The Western mind balks at the notion of a "goal-less" practice.Yet when we overcome hesitation and practice meditation despite its apparent "impracticality," where no end-product is being pursued, something, indeed, is produced - an invisible inner calm, a piercing sense of intuitive perception, a general air of "luminosity" of which we, ourselves, may not even be aware. What is going on here?
This is little more than a paragraph describing broadly the theory behind meditation. It does not offer anything that you would not get in the many other books on Buddhist beliefs and I read it in only a few minutes.
