Sharing success stories

Need some inspiration and motivation? Check out this collection of success stories.

It is sometimes, but not always, easy to start our meditation practice, but it is often quite hard to maintain it within the busy, modern and chaotic lives we live. We are always encouraged by hearing inspiring stories of how others have overcome obstacles and transformed their lives with meditation.

Did you know you can read many accounts of how meditation has helped people overcome life’s challenges on Kadampa.org?

Inspiration for your own life

You can find practical and inspiring stories of how people have used meditation in daily life when dealing with anxiety, sickness, work problems and family situations to name but a few. You can read the ones already shared HERE

Whether you seek to overcome challenges, achieve personal growth, or simply find a spark of encouragement, these articles offer valuable insights and lessons. New stories from around the world are added each week. And if you have your own experience to share, that would help and inspire others, we would love to hear from you. You can send it to us via [email protected].
