Why regard meditation as a rigorous discipline, when it is really a passive and effortless state wherein there is no "I" or "doer" who is doing the meditation? Meditation is a watchful state in which the "watcher" is totally absent. During meditation is is nothing but pure Intelligence that operates. For the want of a better word, I call it the Unconditioned state in which there is undistorted perception.
Many who dabble in meditation only scratch the surface but the serious end up knowing themselves inside out. Soon their superficial outlook on life changes into a positive and profound one. Their defilements drop one by one effortlessly. Various virtues appear from nowhere. Without ever having to wage a war against one's negative traits, these very same traits drop during meditation, thus transforming sinners into saints, criminals into moral men and women, as well as degenerates into decent citizens.
