Time passes, and every one of us will pass away. By bringing us closer to the present moment, meditation opens up a dimension that goes beyond individual and temporal existence.
Time is one of the fundamental mysteries of the universe. What is time? What is the past, the present, the future? Man has often looked upon himself as the master of the universe. But no one has ever been able to conquer time. Modern technology and improved standards of living have prolonged our life span. But this is only a postponement. Time passes inexorably.
