Love is the Great Protector
“Everyone wants to be happy and no one wants to suffer, but very few people understand the real causes of happiness and suffering,” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Buddha taught that meditation on love is the best armor and protection from suffering of all kinds and that a loving heart is a powerful source of happiness. With a loving heart we will naturally enjoy everyone we meet, and “difficult” people will disappear—no longer having an ability to cause us pain or upset. Instead of limiting our love to a few people and experiencing only limited happiness, we will learn how our kind heart cherishing others becomes the basis for all our happiness and good qualities. Geshe-la writes that “We will have discovered an inexhaustible fountain of happiness within our own mind—our love for others.”
All welcome. You do not need to wear special clothes to meditate, and we sit on chairs or cushions.
