    Hey Peaceful!!

    Yes, the same meaning can be taken from both sentences.

    That said, respectfully, the second sentence is not really grammatically correct.  Both sentences are kinda awkward and not what a native speaker would say.

    Everyday usage would be something like this:

    Daily meditation is not helping him ease the pain in his heart.

    If you want to get a bit more poetic:

    Daily meditation is not asuaging the burdens in his heart.

    hope this helps.

    DO these two sentences mean the same thing?

    They do both mean the same thing, but the second statement has incorrect grammar in it. 

    It could read:

    Although meditating every day, he is not able to remove the painful sensations from his heart.

    "getting to" is not used that way. It implies an outside force.

    "Because of his job and family responsibilities, he is not getting to meditate as much as he would like." 

    "painful sensations from his heart" would apply to physical sensations caused by heart disease. Just say "the pain from his heart".  We use "heart" metaphorically to mean emotional pain. Those really come from our brains, and are sometimes felt in the stomach, but not the heart organ.

    I'd more likely say, 

    "Though meditating daily, he has thus far been unable to release the heartfelt pain."
