Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin


How to be kind, wise, compassionate and joyful

the four immeasurablesThe Buddha is said to have stated that it is better to live in the four immeasurables than to live in a luxurious palace. The four immeasurables are kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity. They form the very essence of an awakened and enlightened attitude and Clive will explain how they work together to achieve this. Going back to the roots of the meaning of each of these meditations, we will see how useful it is to at least aspire to bring them into our everyday experience. Some exercises from the book, “Restoring the Balance” will be given in this context.
