Meditation Weekend with Tejananda: Sat 16th & 17th June 2018

Compassion and Emptiness

Benevolence – metta – and compassion, as taught by the Buddha, are essentially boundless liberations of the mind. The familiar practices as we teach them in Triratna are entry points which enable us to engage with our afflictive emotions – liking, disliking, ignoring – and to uncover the true, unbounded nature of the divine abodes. Liberation of the mind from these afflictions, even if temporary, enables us to return to the nature of the boundless qualities as the Buddha himself taught them: a simple, unlimited radiance of love and compassion.

This, in turn, enables an opening to the progressive contemplation of emptiness. The Buddha’s approach, found in the early texts of the Pali canon, is distinct from the more familiar approaches developed by the Mahayana schools. It is less analytical and more direct and experiential.

Over the weekend we’ll explore these wonderful, liberative teachings from a perspective of deep body awareness and in a spirit of open inquiry.

We look forward to seeing you.
