Compassion meditation is the second of the Brahmaviharas, also known as the Divine Abidings or Immeasurables. It arises when lovingkindness meets an awareness of suffering.This is the second track from the double- album, The Heart’s Wisdom
The practice of compassion connects us with the wisdom that all beings wish to avoid suffering. Compassion arises naturally when our lovingkindness meets an awareness of suffering. We learn that compassion is not a dark or draining emotion, but is deeply satisfying and positive.
This practice is guided by Bodhipaksa, a highly experienced meditation teacher with a soothing Scottish lilt.
Through the practice of the Brahmaviharas we can come to a profound sense of peace, an almost divine release from expectations, from judgment, from disappointment, and from the desire to control what is beyond our power to control. With this release arises a profound sense of calmness and a deep and enduring level of patience, a powerful sense of stillness and non-reactivity. We can arrive eventually at a deep acceptance of reality that is the fullness of the heart’ wisdom.
This guided meditation begins with an announcement of the track title, followed by approximately 30 seconds of silence to allow you time to set up your meditation posture.
Led by Bodhipaksa.
