SUNDAY MORNINGS 11AM - 12:15PM
It may seem like compassion is a sad mind, because we can't bear the suffering that we and others are encountering. However, Buddha taught that compassion is a joyful mind. Not because we are happy about others suffering, but because we can transform our mind through love and compassion to create a world where there isn’t suffering.
Come explore the four immeasurables:
May everyone be happy,
May everyone be free from misery,
May no one ever be separated from their happiness,
May everyone have equanimity, free from hatred and attachment.
Experience how we can generate a joyful mind of compassion through our love for others. This inspiring discovery can heal our mental pain and lead us to attain a lasting state of joy and peace for ourself and for others.
