Living with Loving Kindness

by Vijayasri

In this talk Vijayasri introduces us to metta, the basic teaching of the Buddha, by exploring the first chapter of Living with Loving Kindness by Sangharakshita.

Vijayasri discusses the idea of the Buddha as a problem solver looking at suffering and the release from suffering. We consider the Karaniya metta sutta, look at the work of Buddhaghosa, and investigate the ideas of metta as a strongly positive emotion, a rational emotion and as wisdom. The session finishes with some questions for reflection.

This talk was given at Croydon Buddhist Centre as part of our regular Saturday morning Sangha class in the autumn of 2017.
