Day 6 is a day filled with loving kindness. When we learn to cultivate the four basic needs of the heart; attention, affection, appreciation and acceptance towards ourselves, our whole world will begin to change. In the words of the Buddha: ” Don’t go by hearsay, or by your teachers. Just try for yourself.” Today’s music has been composed by Laurie Lesk Aka Yeshe Chodrom

As soon as I saw this meditation, I knew it was going to be hard for me, but it was very necessary. Thank you

These are beautiful meditations - thank you! I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter and it’s hard for me to have much time to meditate and so I’m even able to listen to these whilst with her - the music really helps as I don’t have to sit there on my own being quiet! Much appreciated. I think she enjoys the atmosphere and the music too.

Thank you for the beautiful meditations. I am a few days behind but enjoy them tremendously. Just did this one at my in-laws in Michigan for American Thanksgiving. Will do one or two more later today. I a very grateful for these helpful offerings by Vimalasara.
