Meditation is an action of mind whose nature is single-pointed concentration and whose function is to make the mind peaceful and calm.  We want to be happy all the time, even during our dreams.  How can we do this?  We can do this through training in meditation because meditation makes our mind become peaceful, and when our mind is peaceful we are happy all the time, even if our external conditions are poor.  On the other hand, when our mind is not peaceful we are not happy, even if our external conditions are excellent.  We can understand this through our own experience.  Since the actual method to make our mind peaceful is training in meditation, we should apply effort to training in meditation.  Whenever we meditate, we are performing an action or karma that causes us to experience peace of mind in the future.  From this we can understand how important meditation practice is.
