Guided compassion meditation (karuna bhavana)

Here’s a recording of a guided meditation that I led in a Google+ Hangout, for people who are part of Wildmind’s Google+ community. The meditation is the Karuna Bhavana (Cultivating Compassion) in five stages, where we cultivate compassion for:

  1. Ourselves
  2. A suffering person
  3. A “neutral person”
  4. A “difficult person
  5. All sentient beings.

Enjoy!

Thank you Bodhipaksa, it is very thoughtful to put this online for those of us who can’t make it to the hangouts. I don’t know if this is the first or of there’s been others but I’ll be sure to watch out for them in the future. This is as good as the real thing and very welcome.
