We are delighted to bring you “The Power of Love” in this week’s FBA Podcast. Padmavajra begins this talk with the chanting of The Karaniya Metta Sutta, in order to invoke ‘the blessing power of loving kindness’, which according to the sutta needs to be wielded at all times. He explores all of the stages of the metta bhavana (development of loving-kindness practice), as well as showing how metta can lead to wisdom and liberation, at the same time saying: we practice the metta bhavana to love others, Enlightenment is incidental!

In our FBA Podcast this week, Parami offers a delightful retrospect while looking forward in “Business As Usual – Adhisthana and the Bodhichitta.” Reflecting on the history of the Order, Bhante’s teachings, listening to the Dharma, developing our system of practice, and gathering together in large numbers. Inspiring as ever, Parami seeds the conversation about ‘commonality of practice’ as we move forward into a new era.
From the UK and Ireland Area Order weekend for women at Adhisthana on 7th December 2013.
