A Great Reminder

It’s natural to love – it’s hard wired into us

One of the moments in the film some of us watched together on Sunday night (I AM) that really moved me (and there were many such moments) was the footage of a small boy running into his father’s arms when he made a surprise visit to his son’s preschool after having been away for months …..

The film’s narrative told us that science is discovering that there is a huge physiological and psychological impetus within the body that opens up, responds to and comes alive around kindness and love. We are in our best state when coming from and being in this place – we are meant to be happy, meant to love …..

The Buddhist meditation on kindness, the metta Bhavana, does not have any monopoly on any aspect of love; it simply recognises the above truth and turns us toward the unconditionally compassionate response – to every situation in life. 

So if you want to live in accord with the way things are and be the best you you are capable of being come along and practise with us

Thursday     7 – 8.30 pm

Sunday        8 – 8.50 am

PS: No full moon puja on Saturday night due to Easter but have your own sense of gratitude and reflection if you find yourself under it on Saturday night and we’ll have our next puja together next full moon ….

With metta

Padmadakini and Dharmalata
