Lovingkindness: The Power of Friendship and Inclusion
With Sharon Salzberg
Metta is the Pali word for friendship or lovingkindness. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. With its roots in practices said to be taught by the Buddha himself as an antidote to fear, Metta practice is a steady, unconditional sense of connection that touches all beings without exception—including ourselves. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, happiness, and a greater ability to love.
