Metta: Near and Far Enemies

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?

What is Metta Meditation?

A beautiful and powerful heart-based practice that comes from the Buddhist tradition is metta meditation. Sometimes referred to as loving-kindness meditation. This practice helps to enhance our ability to feel unconditional love and well wishes for ourselves, for others, and for the world at large.

After listening to the audio above, please also check out our 8 Mindfulness Exercises for Love and Compassion.

Another example of a metta meditation, this recording – led by Kamala Masters – expands our loving-kindness practice by incorporating the practice of forgiveness. Through this meditation, we gain a greater sense of our connection to others. Masters invites us to consider that we each one of us holds the same wish and desire for freedom from pain and suffering.
