Posted by Singhamati on Wed, 24 Sep, 2014 - 15:21Im very inspired by the Brahma Viharas at the moment: in cultivating love, compassion, gladness and equanimity for myself and the world. Here is a talk I gave on a recent Young Buddhists Retreat at the Norwich Buddhist centre, August 2014. May it inspire you in these practices too :-)

Dhammapada verses video

Part of their mission is to “re-imagine the Buddha for the digital age”. The text is based on the translation by Sangharakshita and you can find Stephen’s introduction to the piece on his website here.
