Loving Kindness: A Remedy for Infatuation with Samsara

27 Apr 2010

We start with a great introduction on the Four Inmeasurables and how they interrelate based on Buddhaghosa and the Tibetan Buddhism perspective, including the “faux facsimiles” or close but very distorted versions of the 4I (yes! I finally found an abbreviation that I will be using from now on) and some commentary on how to remedy the delusion about thinking that we will be the lucky ones in samsara. After finding that Loving Kindness is the cure for that, we go into a great, deep practice to “get real.”
Afterwards there is some reflection on the practice and a few misc. Q&A.

This samsaric picture by Malcolm was taken before the retreat. This will probably be the only beach picture you see from us!
