An evening meditation on Love

Where
158 Australia St
Newtown NSW 2042
Australia
When

Thursday 23 February from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

This interfaith evening meditation on love, will centre on a guided loving kindness meditation, led by Rigpa Sydney’s Buddhist practitioners.

Even an offering throughout billions of realms,

Consisting of gifts infinite in number and variety,

Presented to great beings every day for all eternity,

Could not match the wonder of a mind of love.

           - the Buddha

It is a timeless spiritual truth that we all have an immeasurable treasury of love within us. Over 2,500 years ago the Buddha taught his disciples meditations on loving kindness as a way to reconnect with that inner wealth and as an antidote to fear. In modern times these meditations continue to provide a gentle yet powerful tool for opening our hearts and minds, and developing our love, empathy and kindness far beyond conventional limitations. In the Buddhist tradition, the practice of loving kindness, metta in the Pali language, carries a sense of unconditional warm-heartedness and kindness, a kind of deep caring, tenderness, and a good heart.

Representatives of other religious traditions active in the Newtown area, including those of Christian, Jewish and Hindu faiths, will join us in offering their prayers and contemplations on love as part of the evening

The evening will include space for quiet reflection and an opportunity to meet over tea, coffee and cake.

Everyone welcome
