This from MahaSangha News:
Sylvia Boorstein is one of the world’s most esteemed teachers of Buddhist wisdom and practice. In an exclusive online retreat with Spiritualityandpractice.com, she offers a summation of her years as a preeminent teacher of lovingkindness.
Lovingkindness is called metta in Pali, the original language of the Buddha. Metta is a derivative of the word for “friend.”
“Although metta has often be translated into English as ‘lovingkindness,’ ” Sylvia says, “I like thinking of it as a friendliness practice, the cultivation of a mind that is so saturated with good will that it responds uniformly to all situations with benevolence.”
This online retreat, the first ever offered by Sylvia, begins Monday, March 15. For more information or to register, visit: http://www.bit.ly/Lovingkindness
