This is one of several talks given by Sayadaw U Jotika in the Mangala Vihara Buddhist Society in Singapore in 2003.

In this talk, Sayadaw elaborates upon the lasting benefits of practicing meditation and why everybody should incorporate meditation as an integral part of their daily lives. By sharing his spiritual journey growing up as a man who has studied many religions, Sayadaw demonstrates how meditation enabled him to find the answers he was seeking.
