April Dharma Talk - The Four Divine Abodes: Love, Compassion, Joy, Equanimity (Part 1)
Join us to explore the four sublime qualities taught by the Buddha. (Donation appreciated)
Time & Location
Apr 16, 2022, 2:00 PM – 3:45 PM EDT
About the Event
The Four sublime states of mind have been taught by the Buddha: Unconditional Love or Loving-Kindness (Metta), Compassion (Karuna), Sympathetic Joy (Mudita), and Equanimity (Upekkha). These qualities are treasured because they are the universal expression of an open heart.
The Four Divine Abodes and the qualities associated with them balance each other. Through cultivating these qualities where the clinging aspects of love, compassion, and joy is balanced with the detaching power of equanimity, we are able to attain a stable, harmonious and grounded state of mind.
Please join us for this event on April 16, Saturday at 2pm ET to explore the Four Immeasurables, meditate and have an open discussion on how we can incorporate these qualities in our daily life.
May the merit of this practice spread everywhere to all.
May I and sentient beings all attain Buddhahood.
To all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the Ten Directions and Three Times,
and maha-prajnaparamita, The perfection that cuts through all illusions!
