Living Divinely: The Brahma Viharas

Posted by Rijupatha on Wed, 10 Jan, 2018 - 17:15

We’re wrapping up the last segment of a four-week series of Tuesday meditations on the Brahma Viharas, or “divine abodes”. In these meditations we’ve cultivated various aspects of positive emotion - including loving-kindness (metta), compassion (karuna), sympathetic joy (mudita), and equanimity (upeksha).

Join the online sangha Tuesday, 23rd January at 2:30pm ET / 7:30pm UK on Google Hangouts as we explore the final week’s Brahma Vihara, equanimity (upeksha).

Join the meditation here!  ...
