Begin to free yourself from the grips of mental agitations
Begin to understand your ego and the volition of your mind
Begin to cultivate a wholesome mind filled only with wholesome thoughts and intentions
Begins to see through you own ignorance about reality within the framework of your own mind
Begin to learn to truly forgive and begin to experience the opening of the heart space filled with pure love

However, the true purpose of meditation is to strengthen the faculty of one's Awareness and Equanimity and thus allowing one to achieve a true purification of the mind!
This purification will then help free one's mind of all the impurities and defilements within, which is often, the root cause of one's mental agitations and sufferings.
It is important to note though, that these benefits can only be experienced when meditation is done correctly, with
whilst observing all platforms of moralities.
Real wisdom is recognizing and accepting that every experience is impermanent
and with this 'insights', one will not be overwhelmed by all of life's vicissitudes!
When inner balance is being retained, one will naturally choose to act in ways that create happiness for one and for others!
