Lovingkindness meditation

Post by kirtu » Mon Sep 10, 2018 10:19 pm



An interesting if somewhat unorthodox lovingkindness guided meditation by Ajahn Brahm. It's worth noting that Ajahn Brahm is considered by many to be an exemplary teacher.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
