The final week of a 4 week beginners meditation class with Venerable Nitho. Venerable expands on the ground work laid in weeks 1, 2 and 3 with the focus for the last week being Metta Meditation.
What is Metta Meditation?
Mettā (Pali) or maitrī (Sanskrit) means benevolence, loving-kindness, friendliness, amity, friendship, good will, kindness, and active interest in others. It is the first of the four sublime states (Brahmavihāras) and one of the ten pāramīs of the Theravāda school of Buddhism.
Venerable gives us real world examples of Metta Meditation to apply not only to the world and those around us, but to ourselves as well. If we are happy, chances are that those around us will feel that and respond in kind.
