Jan. 12: Developing affectionate love for all living beings

Buddha taught how to develop and maintain a warm heart and a feeling of being close to all living beings without exception. This affectionate love makes our mind pure and balanced, and prepares the foundation for generating cherishing love for all living beings.

Meditation: Training in Affectionate Love

Jan. 19: Equalizing self and others

When we train in equalizing self and others we are learning to believe that the happiness and freedom of ourself and all other living beings are equally important. Learning to cherish others is the best solution to our daily problems, and is the source of all our future happiness and good fortune.

Meditation: Training in Cherishing Love

Jan. 26: Exchanging self with others

This profound practice enables us to change our perspective at a very deep level so that eventually we spontaneously believe that the happiness and freedom of each and every other living being are far more important than our own.
