本會將於122329日舉辦由淨行導師Visuddhacara (www.visuteoh.net)主持為期7天的慈心禪修營。培育慈心為我們帶來不一樣的生活品質;在2017年完結的時候,齊參與慈心和正念的修習,這將是最美善的方式來结束舊的一年及開始新的一年。

慈心是四種梵住心中的第一種,即願自己及眾生快樂。佛陀在教導四念住以外,也教導慈心禪。在《慈經》中,佛陀教導弟子們培育像母親對待自己孩子般的慈愛。通過培育慈心,我們能友善地跟自己及他人做朋友,懂得以柔軟、寬容的心原諒及接納自己及他人,從而在生活上無論與己或他人都能和諧共處。在經典裡,佛陀指示出修習慈心禪有睡眠安穩,不做惡夢,為人、天所愛,不被火、毒藥與武器所傷害,心易得定等諸多利益。

淨行導師在修習和教導慈心禪方面經驗豐富。修習主要以坐禪及行禪的形式,持續不間斷的培養、強化慈心的素質,以至轉化心靈。淨行導師亦將會在每晚的開示中介紹四念住及其他三種梵住心。

Dear Friends:

Please join us in a 7-day metta (lovingkindness) and vipassana (insight) meditation retreat this Christmas from Dec 23 – Dec 29, led by Visuddhacara (www.visuteoh.net). Developing lovingkindness can make a great difference to the quality of our lives and there is no better way to end 2017 and begin 2018 than to engage in the wholesome, heartwarming practice of lovingkindness and mindfulness.

Other than Vipassana, the Buddha had also taught to always practice metta and kindness. Metta is a Pali word that means goodwill, lovingkindness, friendliness. It is a one of four divine ways of abiding. Lovingkindness is unconditional love and friendliness towards all beings. It makes no distinction between any living being. The highest aspiration mentioned in the loving-kindness discourse is that one loves all beings just as a mother loves her only child—but of course, first, we have to be skilled at developing it toward ourselves.

By cultivating compassion, we can treat ourselves and others kindly and know how to use the supple forgiving heart to accept ourselves and others, leading us live our daily lives harmoniously and with ease of mind. The Buddha also spoke about eleven benefits of practicing metta, such as sleeping easily; dreaming no evil dreams; beloved by all beings and devas; neither fire, poison nor weapons can harm us; one’s mind gain concentration quickly, etc.

Participants will be spending their days in sitting and walking meditation all the time focusing on the development of this quality, continuously bringing them to mind, and increasing and strengthening it. Visu will give a Dhamma talk every night, which will address a little bit of vipassana and other three brahma-viharas.

Space are limited and subject to a first come first serve basis.
