A Meditation For The Metta Wave

Posted by Mokshini on Sun, 25 Oct, 2015 - 14:56

At 4pm on Saturday November 21 all participants of the International Urban retreat 2015 are invited to take part in a practice of the Metta Bhavana - the Development of Loving Kindness meditation.  

We suggest you practice this traditional meditation practice a little differently to how it is normally done.

The list of Triratna centres is private and I can’t see it. We are going to do the  metta wave here in Venezuela even though we won’t be doing the rest of the Urban Retreat.

Waving to you in Venezuela from my flat in Bristol! Mandando mucho metta desde mi piso en Bristol :)

hi vajranatha, 

great that your sangha in Venezuela joined the metta wave, I trust you got hold of the list! 

Most of the pages on this site are ‘private’ in the sense that you will only see them if you have joined the urban retreat page by clicking on +Follow in the banner image on the ‘about’ page. This is so that comments and any postings stay within the community of those doing the urban retreat and don’t get shared all over the buddhistcentre.com

Here are the photo posters of nearly all of the Triratna Sanghas around the world which are taking part in the Urban Retreat 2015. Many thanks to Rijupatha from the team at Dharmachakra (who are behind The Buddhist Centre Online and Free Buddhist Audio) for creating it!

Hi dharma_gal, it will be possible! It may only be possible from the start of the Urban retreat on the 21st - let me find out and I’ll get back to you :)

We can definitely add the picture to the existing set online at least.
