The fruit of meditation is not the absence of thoughts, but the fact that thoughts cease to harm us.

People with a misconception about meditation believe that all thoughts should cease. We cannot, in fact, establish ourselves in a state devoid of thoughts. The fruit of meditation is not the absence of thoughts, but the fact that thoughts cease to harm us. Once enemies, they become friends.

– Bokar Rinpoche
