.pdf book Metta by Sayadaw U Indaka

Post by cooran » Tue Jan 21, 2014 7:39 am

Hello all,

One of the best books for practice that I have come across:

Metta - The practice of Loving Kindness as the Foundation for Insight Meditation Practice by Sayadaw U Indaka
http://compik.fd.cvut.cz/~mrazek/books/ ... nglish.pdf


With metta,
Chris

Thanks, Chris!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I've just started reading this, too, and find it wonderfully straightforward and inspiring. I especially like the encouragement to practice metta at all times throughout the day. I had been limiting myself to set times to meditate but Indaka's book has freed me up to meditate in more situations.
