Taking the Essence: How to Cultivate Loving-Kindness

Dates: Mar 3,10, 17, 24

In a world often negatively impacted by conflict, stress, and self-centered pursuits, the cultivation of loving-kindness stands as a transformative antidote. Loving-kindness, or “Metta” in Pali and “Maitri” in Sanskrit, is not merely an emotional state but a profound spiritual practice that serves as a cornerstone in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy. This course aims to elucidate the significance of loving-kindness and provide practical methods for cultivating this sublime quality in one’s mind.

In this course, participants will:

  1. Gain a deep understanding of what loving-kindness means from the Tibetan Buddhist perspective, including its role in the path to enlightenment.
  2. Learn the psychological and spiritual benefits of cultivating loving-kindness, both for oneself and for others.
  3. Engage in contemplations specifically designed to nurture loving-kindness, transforming it from a conceptual understanding to a lived experience

The course will utilize philosophical teachings, guided meditations, interactive discussions, and question-and-answer sessions. Whether you are new to Tibetan Buddhism or a seasoned practitioner, this course offers a comprehensive guide to understanding and practicing loving-kindness as a means to spiritual awakening and genuine well-being.
