Insights from Chapter 1 

Number One

One of the central benefits of Buddhist meditation is using alarming and disturbing events and emotions to discover the strength and capability of the mind. Most people live in a state of implicit hopelessness, because they disregard the need for reflection on daily events and passively accept their reality. 

Number Two

The culture of gaining material wealth leaves little space for the cultivation of inner qualities like compassion and patience. This makes people vulnerable in critical situations. Most people tend to use escapism and fail at finding peace in it. The Buddha, however, teaches to find peace in conditions of turmoil. 

Number Three 

In Buddhist tradition, meditation is the process of getting to know your mind. People think they already know their mind, but the meditation process starts off like meeting a stranger. Humans are so used to thinking in flows of emotions and thoughts that they often forget to study them individually.
