Community Practice Day Metta for the Earth Sunday 14 June 10.00-4.30pm

Community Practice Day Metta for the Earth Sunday 14 June 10.00-4.30pm

By vidyakaya on Thu, 28 May, 2015 - 12:31

A day at the Brighton Buddhist Centre to look at the Earth Metta Practice in more depth. 

How can we relate it to the Six Realms of the Wheel of Life?

How do we practice Metta towards those living in Hell Realms where all they know is suffering – or towards those who live in a realm where all they can understand is Power?

And how do we become Bodhisattvas?  How do we go about practicing the Perfections of Generosity, Ethics, Patience, Energy, Concentration and Wisdom?

Led by Vidyakaya...
