Fall 2011 Shamatha Retreat

66 Loving kindness, part 3



We continue with the practice of metta, or loving kindness, expanding out as in the Pali suttas, combined with the Tibetan liturgy of Mahamaitri (great loving kindness) Helping others can mean to help them hedonically, not just to fulfill legitimate needs/desires but also ultimately to help them see through 'hedonic fundamentalism' Why couldn't we all find happiness and the causes of happiness? May it be so! We can! With the help of the Buddha, deity and guru may I make it so! Celebrate different aspirations for happiness - diversity of desire Meditation starts at 14:50
