Meditation on the Four Immeasurables

About Loving Kindness (these benefits are taken from Vermont Zen Centre (vzc.org))

Metta practice helps us to:

  • Bring harmony into our lives and into our relationships
  • Rid ourselves of internal and external conflicts
  • Overcome lacerating guilt
  • Be open to loving acceptance of ourselves and others
  • Deepen our connections with all beings

As a result of practicing metta we become more empathetic, more considerate, more kind, more forgiving, and in general, more loving, friendly people.
