In this short teaching, Mingyur Rinpoche explains the essence of meditation and how it is different from the passing experiences that happen when we meditate. These two can easily be mixed up. We often judge how well our practice is going by looking to our experience, but this is not always helpful. Rather than focusing on fleeting experiences, Mingyur Rinpoche shows us how to focus on the most important point, namely, the essence of meditation itself.
