The Four Limitless Meditations with Lama Zangmo
WhoTeacher: Lama Gelongma Zangmo
The Four Limitless Meditations - Loving-kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, and Equanimity- are also known as the Four Immeasurables, or the Brahmaviharas. These four qualities are taught to provide the answer to all situations we may encounter in our lives. They are the great removers of tension, the great peace-makers in social conflict, and the great healers of wounds suffered in the struggle of existence.
Through contemplation and dedicated practice of The Four Immeasurables, we transform our delusion, greed, self-centredness, and negativity. We heal the afflictions of anger, hatred, loneliness, sorrow, and unhealthy attachments.
Lama Zangmo will go through these over four weeks. Each session will have time for questions as well as meditations to help these attitudes become our inseparable companions, and so we become mindful of them in our daily activities. This course is suitable for all, both beginners and those with some experience in Buddhism and meditation.
The course will run over four Thursday evenings and it is a requirement to commit to attend all four classes. Unless you are able to attend all the classes, we ask you not to book for the course. Each class will have time for instructions, questions and answers, as well as time for actual meditation.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
