The Metta Bhavana, or meditation on loving kindness, is only the first of the so-called “Abodes of the Gods” (Brahma Viharas) – also known as “The Boundless States”. If that sounds appealing, so it should: these four inter-related meditation practices, on loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity, are potentially very pleasurable practices. They’re also an important support for cultivating a skilful ethical life and for positive relationships in daily life. And ultimately, they offer a profound insights into the nature of life. If you have some familiarity with the Metta Bhavana, this course will enrich and deepen your experiential understanding of that practice, and give you more context on how it relates to some of the most fundamental teachings of Buddhism.
