What is the benefit of such long meditations that a series of short meditations cannot do ?

It should be the quality of the meditation, not the quantity (length) of it, that counts.

Nitewish 



When i was a kid i used to like to shake up these
water scenes and the snow would go fly'n.
Or put sand in a bottle with water shale it
up and then watch it settle. quite often it
would take quite a while for it to settle.

in the same way our minds are stirred up by thoughts
emtions and restlessness. it generally takes quite a while
to settle down the mind and the thoughts. if you ever watch coffee drip
into a coffee maker you will see that each drip
 causes ripples across the surface. Thus even when we do start to settle
down our mind any given thought will cause ripples
across our consciousness.

so it takes practice practice practice. this practice can easily go on all day.
but yes short periods of practice are also beneficial.

Sometime we may have to clean out a storage area or garage
Perhaps we know someone  to help us to provide quality time.
 Grin they may know how to organize things better. I just happen
to know an entity called elfum and another entity who goes by
the name nitewish. They would fit such a description.

And so it is with meditation.
if we have good techniques and the help of a master
it will help to settle our mind down quicker

So it is good to have  a series of short meditations
and a long one from time to time as well.
In this way we can benefit in different ways
that a series of quality short meditations
will provide; and the benefit of long
 meditations to give us more time
to get depth of practice . We work
towards quality time in both short
and long meditation.

P.S.

Whether we dribble or consnible
one such as yourself will be delghtfully
indiscribably ready for darshan
because of our double packed practice!
Ahh such memories of meditations
together!
