Loving Kindness Meditation: The Buddha’s Teaching of Compassion

In this episode of Enlightenment Today, I will explain the practice of loving kindness meditation in Buddhism. In a world lacking compassion and forgiveness, loving kindness meditation is a great practice to cultivate and amplify those intrinsic human qualities. The decline of compassion and forgiveness was also a problem during the time of the Buddha. But instead of blaming others, Buddha turns our gaze within to expand our love beyond the boundaries of our associated affection, to include our so-called enemies and strangers. This practice will transform your mind and has a profound impact on how you experience the world.
