An Interview of Matthieu Ricard in Science of the mind, National Geographic Channel.
Matthieu Ricard: "Meditation will help you to become master your mind, and master your mind is not getting up of freedom, sometimes people think: Oh! I am going to cope my mind and so reducing my freedom. Take the example of sailors at sea. What is freedom? To let board drift? Whatever the control of wind blows? That's not freedom, that is drifting. Real freedom is taking the hand and navigate where you have chosen to go, that's freedom. So you have to charge your mind, that's freedom!"
