Session 36: Entering the Path, A Wisdom Perspective on Empathetic Joy

B. Alan Wallace, 18 Nov 2010

This afternoon we look at Empathetic Joy – the aspiration for all beings to never be parted from happiness and its causes – and explore what this means from a wisdom perspective. Ultimately we look at it from the perspective of ‘Path,’ and what it means for one’s life to become Dharma. Following the meditation, Alan answers questions related to the practices of settling the mind in its natural state and awareness of awareness, as well as some very practical guidance related to the practice of lucid dreamless sleep. This mudita really is a cultivation of emotion. (It s joy. … Taking delight in others’ joys successes)
