It's often contemplatives — like monks, nuns, or meditators — that have the most to say about living a meaningful life. So in these uncertain times, it seems fitting to hear from two such people: a Hindu nun and Tibetan Buddhist teacher.  

They both say there are profound benefits in learning to sit quietly with yourself. After a little practice, you might find you’re more connected to the natural world around you — and a little less lonely.
