Summer reading ideas from Windhorse Publications

By Helen - Windhor... on Fri, 14 May, 2021 - 14:39

A line from a poem by Damian Barr has been widely quoted recently: ‘We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat.’ In some places the winds of COVID-19 are raging, and the boats are not seaworthy. In India. In Brazil. Amongst those who have lost much in the last year, one way or another. So, this week we’re giving away the eBook edition of Vessantara’s The Heart, a guide to cultivating a boundless, loving heart that...

Dharmabyte: Metta Bhavana as Insight Practice

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 13 May, 2021 - 06:00

Bodhidasa discusses the Metta Bhavana and the way it is taught in the Triratna system of meditation. Reflecting on the Karaniya Metta Sutta and Buddhaghosha’s 5th century text the Visuddhimagga, Bodhidasa explores how this core practice relates to the Bodhisattva ideal, and how we can expand, refresh and enrich our metta practice in all its stages by re-visiting the structure.

From the talk entitled Beyond Boundaries given at Sydney Buddhist Centre, 2018.
