Description

Brahma Viharas means ‘divine abodes’ in Pali, the language of the original Buddhist teachings. The term refers to four meditation practices that can help enrich our lives, developing concentration, fearlessness, happiness and a greater ability to love. The techniques, known as lovingkindness (metta), compassion (karuna), joy in the happiness of others (mudita) and equanimity (upekkha) cultivate our natural capacity for an open and loving heart.
