Q: I am enrolled in Buddhism class this fall. I do 108 prostrations an meditation every morning. But a lot of distracting thoughts arise when I meditate. I concentrate, still the thoughts arise, then I notice to go back to concentration. Then more thoughts arise, then 10 minutes pass by quickly. So, today I sat for 30 more minutes but the thoughts still kept arising. Going on this way, I don’t think I will get to see myself. I would like to know why we meditate and what we gain from it.
