Russell Simmons: Why I Meditate

Russell Simmons is passionate about yoga (he's a Jivamukti fan), veganism, and meditation. Why meditation? Russell says:

"I have been a meditator for about 12 years. It has given me energy, strength, health, wisdom, and access to my own inner stillness, inner silence, inner bliss. It is my connection to myself; it is my connection to the universe....You don’t have to believe in meditation for it to work. You just have to take the time to do it. The old truth is still true today, “God helps those who help themselves.” My advice? Meditate."

Namaste to that

Watch Russell enthusiastically speak about meditation -- how it promotes happiness, creates optimism, and "a cycle of good."
