Sunday, December 10, 10am - 1pm

The way of loving kindness

Many problems come from our relationships due to our mind being clouded by anger and jealousy. Although our mind is often like a cloudy sky overcast by negative states of mind, in essence it is clear and pure. The Buddhist way of loving-kindness is a profound and practical method to solve relationship problems by clearing our mind so we can enjoy satisfying experiences with everyone we meet.
