Ayya Khema: What is Buddhist meditation?

The venerable German-born Buddhist nun Ayya Khema talks about the benefits and reasons to meditate (09:55). This takes body and mind into consideration -- particularly focusing on care of the mind. She follows in the second clip with a single pitfall to sitting, overcoming it, and finding oneself halfway to meditation (02:36). Finally, in the third clip she discusses the Buddha's methods (02:08).
