Equalizing Self and Others: Buddhist Loving Kindness

COURSE

Course description

Normally, we divide the external world into that which we consider to be good or valuable, bad or worthless, or neither. Most of the time, these discriminations are incorrect or have little meaning. For example, our habitual way of categorizing people as friends, enemies and strangers depending on how they make us feel, is a great obstacle to developing impartial love for all living beings. Rather than holding so tightly to our discriminations of the external world, it would be more beneficial if we learned to discriminate between valuable and worthless states of mind. Of all the innumerable conceptual thoughts that arise from our root mind, the most harmful is self-cherishing and the most beneficial is the mind of cherishing others.

Self-cherishing is our mind thinking ‘I am important’ while neglecting others. This self-centered view of the world does not correspond to reality. Once we view each and every living being as important we naturally develop good intentions towards them. In this course you will learn practical tools to help you develop a view of the world, based on an understanding of the equality and interdependence of all living beings.
