With his usual warmth, clarity and good humour, Prajnaketu explores the mental events of hatred and love with great detail and personal reflections.

“Not by hatred are hatreds ever pacified in the world, by love are they pacified, this is the eternal law.” ~ Dhammapada

In the presence of suffering or pain, our sense of self is often diminished as we come to realize our efforts to control our experience to avoid pain don’t work. On the contrary, wishing ourselves and others well in the ups and downs of life, one is practicing the softening of the barriers between self and other and filling that space with love.

This is one of several talks given during a retreat entitled Mind in Harmony at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2016.
