The practice of Metta is an exploration. How Metta is relevant in the unfolding of the Dharma? How the heart responds as we identify loving kindness?

Another example of a metta meditation, this recording – led by Kamala Masters – expands our loving-kindness practice by incorporating the practice of forgiveness.
