Meditations on Loving Kindness
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Sat 20 Jan & Sun 21 Jan , 10am-5pm
Many of our unpeaceful minds relate to those around us. In these retreats we will explore the meditations on loving kindness, learning how to maintain a peaceful mind and warm feeling towards those we meet. Attend one or both days. £16 per day or £25 for both. . Overnight accommodation is available.
Explore how to cultivate an authentic experience of loving kindness through meditation. By opening our heart to others we can solve many of our daily problems, improve our relationships with others and maintain a happy peaceful mind all the time. At present, our experience of real love is very limited and is often conditional. As a result many of our relationships with other people also serve as a source of much pain, anxiety and frustration. However, through training systematically in these timeless methods we can make all our encounters with others more satisfying and meaningful.
“It is said that there exists a magic crystal that has the power to purify any liquid it is placed in. Those who cherish others are like this crystal – by their very presence they remove negativity from the world and give back love and kindness.” – Geshe Kelang Gyatso

Lunch and refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the day retreat.
