Women’s Course: The Brahma Viharas

Mondays 16 April-21 May, 7.30-9.30pm

Led by Maitrisara, Bodhinita, Nagadevi, Sagarasri, Pasannamati, Singhamati and Moksacitta

The Brahma Viharas are a beautiful mandala of meditation practices based on the metta bhavana. As metta meets suffering, compassion arises; as metta meets joy, gladness arises; as metta opens its wisdom eye to the nature of things, equanimity arises. Each week we will be focusing on a different meditation.

The women’s study groups will be merged for this course and other women not currently attending a study group, providing they know the metta bhavana meditation, are more than welcome to join us.

No charge – please make a donation when you come to the Buddhist Centre.

The evenings will be most beneficial if you attend all (or most) of them but it will be possible also to come to a few or just one.
