Happiness and suffering come from your own mind, not from outside. Your own mind is the cause of happiness; your own mind is the cause of suffering. To obtain happiness and pacify suffering, you have to work within your own mind.

LEVEL Intermediate/Advanced
START DATE Thursday, 27th October 2022
TIME Thursday nights, 7:00 – 9:00pm (please note the time change)

The Four Immeasurables are so called because we generate equanimity, love, compassion, and joy towards an immeasurable number of sentient beings. 

Meditating on the Four Immeasurable Thoughts is a fundamental practice in Buddhism.

As thought-feelings that open our heart towards ourselves and others, they are forerunners of bodhicitta, the altruistic intention that seeks enlightenment in order to benefit all sentient beings most effectively.
