Good Meditator, Good Warrior

The actual day-to-day sitting practice of meditation–watching one’s breath and working with one’s discursive thoughts, keeping one’s good posture and all those small details–sometimes seems to be insignificant. But that is not true; it is very important, very significant. A good sitter, a good meditator, makes a good Shambhala person. Having developed such discipline, then the student warrior begins to develop further head and shoulders and a further sense of openness and discipline.
